“So where is your blessing? For I bear witness of you that, if it had been possible, you would have plucked out your own eyes and given them to me.” Gal. 4:15
The joy of being saved and the fascination over Jesus, had gone over to a focus on legalism, in the church of Galatia. Their rejoicing was now silent. When they received the gospel for the first time they where so happy and thankful. To remind them about the first time, Paul said that they where so blessed that they where ready to pluck out their own eyes and give them.
Indescribeable big gift
Jesus is wonderful. To have your sin forgiven, to be saved and know that heaven is open, that is wonderful.
It is so wonderful that words can not describe. It’s more prescious than anything else. To become a child of God and rescued from hell by grace, that is an indescribeable big gift.
“whom, having not seen, you love; and in whom, though you do not see Him now, you believe and you rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory, receiving as the result of your faith the salvation of your souls.” 1 Peter 1:8-9
We love and believe in Jesus, our wonderful Savior.
Soon our faith will turn into beholding
Let not, neither the worries or glamour of this world obscure Jesus. “He endured by looking to Him who is invisible.” Hebr. 11:27
“Let us look to Jesus” Hebr. 12:2
Look to Jesus. Not just that you looked to Jesus yesterday, or when you were newsaved, or that you gonna do it sometime when you have time for it.
See Jesus in the Bible. See Him as crucified for you. See Him as resurrected for you. See Him as “the same yesterday, and today, and forever.” Hebr. 13:8 See Him as glorified in Rev. 1:10-20
“Therefore I will not be negligent to always remind you of these things, though you know them and are established in the truth that is present with you. I consider it right, as long as I live in this body, to stir you up by reminding you,” 2 Petr. 1:12-13
Be reminded about Jesus, look to Him, love Him and believe in Him. Then rejoicing and thankfulness start to sound again. Jesus is wonderful and soon our faith will turn into beholding, face to face.
“Then I looked, and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders the voices of many angels, numbering ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice: “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing!” Rev. 5:11-12
God bless you.
