WE HAVE BEEN DELIVERED
3 Grace to you and peace from God the Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ, 4 who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us out of this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father— 5 to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen. (WEB)
May each one of us find grace and peace from our heavenly Father today as we remember how our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ gave Himself up for all our sins. May we experience a deeper revelation of the freedom we now enjoy because we have been delivered out of this present evil age simply because our Heavenly Father desired to rescue us.
May the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation (Ephesians 1:17-18) open up the eyes of our hearts today so that we would see that we no longer are slaves living in a dark world system, but sons of God, living in the Kingdom of His Son and partakers of every good and perfect gift that flows down from His throne (James 1:17). To God be the glory forever and ever for this amazing gift of salvation!
15 For this cause I also, having heard of the faith in the Lord Jesus which is among you, and the love which you have toward all the saints, 16 don’t cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers, 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him; 18 having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope of his calling, and what are the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, (WEB)
