Message for May 3, 2020 from Pastor Shirley

For at one time you were not God’s people, but now you are. At one time you knew nothing of God’s mercy, because you hadn’t received it yet, but now you are drenched with it! 1Peter 2:10
     The fix is in…meaning that the fight has been fixed” or in the sense that someone has paid to determine the outcome of the competition in advance.  To make or become firm, stable, or secure.
     God has made our salvation secured through Jesus. Our past, present, and future sins are already forgiven. The fix is in.   We stand in the position of victory. Ephesians 1:7-11  Through the blood of his Son, we are set free from our sins. God forgives our failures because of his overflowing kindness. He had decided to do this through Christ. He planned to bring all of history to its goal in Christ. Then Christ would be the head of everything in heaven and on earth. God also decided ahead of time to choose us through Christ according to his plan, which makes everything work the way he intends. He planned all of this so that we who had already focused our hope on Christ would praise him and give him glory.
     I recall to mind the song-I owed a debt I could not pay-He paid the debt he did not owe-I needed someone to wash my sins away-And now I sing a brand new song Amazing Grace All day long Christ Jesus paid the debt that I could never pay-He paid the debt on calvary He saved my soul-He set me free-Am glad that Jesus washed all my sins away-And now I sing a brand new song Amazing Grace all day long-Christ Jesus paid the debt that I could never pay.
   All because of JESUS!
