Christmas 2010

Romans 5.2-5

Rejoice:  you’re under only grace
  • Some think God relates to them on the basis of their performance.
  • If you are in Christ, you are under grace and only grace. 
  • Anything and everything that comes to you is Father-filtered and for your good.
  • We have a bedrock of firm footing:  God is for us. 
  • The realm of grace reminds us this isn’t all there is, leading to joy in what will be. 

Rejoice:  your trials have purpose
  • Endurance – the ability to stick to something.
  • Character – tested, hammered, proven that glorifies Jesus.
  • Hope – the same hope for what will be.
  • No matter our trial or reason for it, God is with us.
