Let me tell you what Jesus has done for me.
He assumed my human nature so I could partake of His divine nature. He became poor so I could become rich. He was born of a woman so I cold be born of God. He became the son of man so I could become a son of God. He was born under the law of God so I could be free from the law of sin and death. He was made sin for me so I could become the righteousness of God in Him. He was condemned so I could be justified. He endured God’s wrath so I could enjoy God’s grace. He died so I could live. He suffered the hell I deserve so I could enjoy Him in heaven. He saved me by His grace and gave me faith to believe in Him. He did this for all who believe. Do you?
The gospel, dear reader, is a salvation appointed for those who are ready to perish, and is not designated to put them in a way to save themselves by their own work. It speaks to us as condemned already, and calls on us to believe in a crucified Savior, that we may receive redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of our sins. And the Spirit of God, by the gospel, first convinces us of unbelief, sin and misery, and then by revealing the things of Jesus to our minds, enables us as helpless sinners to come to Christ, to receive Him, to behold Him, or in other words, to believe in Him, and expect pardon, life and grace from him; renouncing every hope and aim in which we once rested; accounting all things lost and dung for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ.
How we long for the day when we shall be gathered to our Lord Jesus Christ with all of His saints to see the King in His beauty and power and majesty, and raise our voices with one accord in unabated, unrestrained and unending praise to Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood.
