New Testament – Romans 5:1-11
Be exalted, Lord, above the heavens, let your glory cover the earth. Keep our nations under your care, and guide us in justice and truth. Let your way be known by all people, your saving power among all nations. Send out your light and your truth, that we may tell of your saving works. Lord, hear our prayers, for we put our trust in you.
Lord we lift to you all those affected by the drought in the Horn of Africa. Hear their cries! Help the aid agencies and national governments to assist these people quickly! And especially for a dear friend, Lynn, who fell and injured herself. We pray for quick healing and assure her of your love for her. We ask this in Jesus Name, Amen!
You are loved by God and blessed by Him! In Jesus Christ, the love of God was seen and exemplified! Here are 7 reasons or blessings to affirm you as a Christian from our Bible reading in Romans 5v1-11.
- We have peace with God (v1).
- We have access to God (v2a).
- We have a glorious hope (v2b)
- We develop Christian character (v3-4).
- We have God’s love within us (v5-8).
- We have salvation from future wrath (v9-10).
- We have reconciliation with God (v11)
These 7 blessings of your being a Christian show how certain you can be that God loves you, has blessed you and you are His child. If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal saviour, then His love and blessings are yours!
May the love of God the Father, the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all, evermore. Amen
