SOOOO I have another question this morning –

When measuring you.. is God Jesus conscious of you conscious?
When you sin.. is God Jesus conscious or you conscious?
When you approach Him… is God Jesus conscious or you conscious?

Romans 4:22-25 (PTP)
22 So now you can see why Abraham’s faith was credited to his account as righteousness before God.[o] 23 And this declaration was not just spoken over Abraham, 24 but also over us. For when we believe and embrace the one who brought our Lord Jesus back to life, perfect righteousness will be credited to our account as well. 25 Jesus was handed over to be crucified for the forgiveness of our sins and was raised back to life to prove that he had made us right with God![p]

the essence of the Gospel is this –
Because of God’s Love and through the perfect sacrifice Of Jesus everything that He deserves is GRANTED to us and everything we deserved was RECIEVED by Him.

The Apostle Paul gave us a clear definition of this Christian life –

Gal. 2.20 (NKJV) I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

How many of are trying to LIVE FOR GOD? I am not living FOR Jesus but allowing Jesus to live His life THROUGH me..

So the work Christ accomplished was all done in union with us. Christ did the work and we can enjoy the benefits.

So, according to the scriptures, we have…
• Been crucified with Christ
• died with Christ
• been buried with Christ
• been made alive with Christ
• been raised with Christ
• And we now sit with Him at Gods right hand because we are in complete union with Him

Andrew Murray –
“to enjoy this new life, nothing is as necessary except faith in the blood of Jesus… the blood alone has done everything.”
