2013 READ the BIBLE in a YEAR / Today’s Readings: Exodus 1,2 / 1 Corinthians 1 / Psalm 5
1 Corinthians 1:30 [NLT] God has united you with Christ Jesus. For our benefit God made him to be wisdom itself. Christ made us right with God; he made us pure and holy, and he freed us from sin.
Reminded today that my faith is a result of God’s doing. “God had united you with Christ Jesus.” and Christ, look what Christ does; “Made us right with God, made us pure and holy, and freed us from sin.”
I found it interesting that Paul speaks of all these things as completed, past tense. We aren’t being made right with God, we aren’t becoming pure and holy, He hasn’t begun to free us of our sins. – It’s done – UNITED IN CHRIST JESUS – Done!
