Our Deliverance Even Greater Than The Exodus!

In freeing our souls from the bondage of sin, God has wrought for us a deliverance greater than that of the Hebrews at the Red Sea. Like the Hebrew host, we should praise the Lord with heart and soul and voice for His "wonderful works to the children of men." Those who dwell upon God's great mercies, and are not unmindful of His lesser gifts, will put on the girdle of gladness and make melody in their hearts to the Lord. The daily blessings that we receive from the hand of God, and above all else the death of Jesus to bring happiness and heaven within our reach, should be a theme for constant gratitude. What compassion, what matchless love, has God shown to us, lost sinners, in connecting us with Himself, to be to Him a peculiar treasure! - Patriarchs and Prophets, 288, 289.

It was a blessing to be in Holy Communion today at church.  It is a necessary and powerful reminder that we are ever to keep before us the cross of Christ and his suffering on our behalf to save us from our sins, and give us the gift of his righteousness and eternal life.  The innocent Son of God became our Passover Lamb, and shed his precious blood to receive our death penalty and cancel our sins before the Father. All who through active faith accept Christ's substitutionary, sacrificial death on the cross for sin are accepted in the Well-Beloved.  "For it pleased the Father that in Him should all fulness dwell; And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by Him to reconcile all things unto himself; by Him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.  And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath He reconciled in the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreprovable in his sight."  Colossians 1:19-22.  "For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him."  2 Corinthians 5:21.  

We who were separated from God because of our sins (Isaiah 59:2) have been reconciled to God through Jesus Christ.  "And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:  Among whom also we had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.  But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith He loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:  That in the ages to come He might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.  For by grace are ye saved through faith: and that not of yourselves:  it is the gift of God.  Not of works, lest any man should boast.  For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them."  Ephesians 2:1-10. Amen.
