God’s Perspective

wpid-church-drawing-blurred.jpg

Do you understand Gods perspective upon the salvation of your soul? If you have been a Christian for any amount of time you probably do. Lets look at God’s perspective on our life after he redeemed us from sin. Remember this pertains to a person who has already turned from their sin in repentance (yes, I said it) and trusted in the sacrifice of Jesus as the only way to God. Also keep in mind that if you are a Christian struggling with your old nature, remembering these truth will help you change biblically.

God’s Perspective and our Assurance

As a believer you have been declared righteous in the site of God. He no longer sees you as a sinner but as one who has Christ’s righteousness. We are no longer under God’s wrath.

even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference; (Romans 3:22)

Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. (Romans 5:9)

We now have peace with God because he has justified us through Christ

Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, (Romans 5:1)

You have been adopted into God’s family and are no longer separated from him or a stranger. We are joint-heirs with Christ.

just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as 

Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, (Ephesians 1:4-5; 19)

We have been given the gift of eternal life with God himself. God will continue to work in us until we have been united with him in his presence.

And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand (John 10:28)

being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ; (Philippians 1:6)

Christ being a sacrifice for us, can now help us through any situation because he experienced what we experience on this fallen earth.

 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all pointstempted as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrews 4:15-16)

We are now a new creation! We don’t have to live enslaved to sin. We live unto God and have been freed from our past identity.

 Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness? 17 But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were delivered. 18 And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. (Romans 6:16-18)

 But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life. (Romans 6:22)

God has enabled us to handle any problem that comes into our life. Defeat is not our result anymore!

No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. (1 Corinthians 10:13)

We have the understanding from scripture that God uses problems as a means to  grow us into maturity.

 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. (James 1:2-4)

 And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance;and perseverance, character; and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us. (Romans 5:3-5)

Finally God is ever-present with us plus he has given us a helper that lives within us.

 “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5)

As we have looked through these scriptures together I want you to let them sink deep into your soul. I challenge you to memorize your favorite ones and allow those to transform your mind. Don’t get stuck in the mindset that our identity is found in our failures. Don’t allow your soul to become anxious and worrisome over your sin. Remember we are aliens here on earth and our true home is with our father in heaven. Don’t focus on commands and forget the promises God has clearly revealed to the adopted. Most importantly remember God understands and he is ever-present to help in time of need.

Christians are to look more and more like Christ every day. We are to cultivate and build our relationship with God through love and obedience to his word. Our obedience comes through understanding God’s perspective on our lives and committing our minds to be changed into that image.

With Great Love and Truth,
