Second: we are particularly chosen by God, known by him before He
even laid the foundations of the earth.
Thirdly: we are loved by God, loved as His own children.
Fourthly: we are born again to a living hope:
How: God sent his "Only begotten, beloved son" to pay for our sins by his death. Praise the LORD he rose again but that didn't make the death any less painful because what killed him was that He had to bear all the sins of the world in order for his death to cover them. It was our sins on Christ that killed Him.
Fifthly: we are declared Righteous by Christ's death.
Romans 5:1 Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Romans 5:9 Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God
Jesus Christ is our Righteousness (I usually write that +R)
+R Imputed - Justification
+R Imparted - Sanctification
We are truly beloved by our Father God. How I praise Him and worship Him and delight in Him.
Actually, I only posted two verses but I urge you, if you read this, to go and read Romans chapter 5 and rejoice your heart in Him.
