God’s Correctional Facility

March 17, 2014

Because we have been corrected by God’s faithful action of grace towards us in Jesus Christ we are now at peace with God. And we even boast that we have this hope of sharing in God’s glory. Not only that, but we boast in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Sprit that has been given to us.

Just at the right time Christ died for the ungodly – while we were still weak. For it’s truly a rare thing for anyone to die for a righteous person – though someone might actually dare to die for a good person. But God proves his love for us, in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us.

So now that we have been corrected by his bloody death, we will surely be rescued through him from our wrath. For if, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, we can be even more sure that now that we are reconciled, we will be rescued by his life
