Does That Excite You?


The Remnant [Rom 11:1 ESV] I ask, then, has God rejected his people? By no means! For I myself am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, a member of the tribe of Benjamin. [Rom 11:2 ESV] God has not rejected his people whom he foreknew. Do you not know what the Scripture says of Elijah, how he appeals to God against Israel? [Rom 11:3 ESV] "Lord, they have killed your prophets, they have demolished your altars, and I alone am left, and they seek my life." [Rom 11:5 ESV] So too at the present time there is a remnant, chosen by grace. [Rom 11:6 ESV] But if it is by grace, it is no longer on the basis of works; otherwise grace would no longer be grace. [Rom 11:7 ESV] What then? Israel failed to obtain what it was seeking. The elect obtained it, but the rest were hardened,


Set Free! [Rom 8:1 ESV] There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. [Rom 8:2 ESV] For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. [Rom 8:3 ESV] For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, [Rom 8:4 ESV] in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.


Even Creation is excited by New Christians. [Rom 8:18 NIV] I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. [Rom 8:19 NIV] For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. [Rom 8:20 NIV] For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope [Rom 8:21 NIV] that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.


The Highest Potential of Humans is they become New Creations!   [2Co 5:17 ESV] Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come . [2Co 5:18 ESV] All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation ; [2Co 5:19 ESV] that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation . [2Co 5:20 ESV] Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God . [2Co 5:21 ESV] For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. Makes us NEW.


Starts in the Inside [ 1Jo 3:19 ESV] By this we shall know that we are of the truth and reassure our heart before him ; [1Jo 3:20 ESV] for whenever our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and he knows everything . [1Jo 3:21 ESV] Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God ; [1Jo 3:22 ESV] and whatever we ask we receive from him, because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him . [1Jo 3:23 ESV] And this is his commandment, that we believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us . [1Jo 3:24 ESV] Whoever keeps his commandments abides in God, and God in him. And by this we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit whom he has given us.


Outside; Armor and weapons of war. [ Eph 6:13 ESV] Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.   [ Eph 6:14 ESV] Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, [ Eph 6:15 ESV] and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace.   [ Eph 6:16 ESV] In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one;   [ Eph 6:17 ESV] and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God,   [ Eph 6:18 ESV] praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,


Legally “Justice - Fair [Rom 8:29 ESV] For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.   [Rom 8:30 ESV] And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.   [Rom 8:31 ESV] What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?   [Rom 8:32 ESV] He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?   [Rom 8:33 ESV] Who shall bring any charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies.   [Rom 8:34 ESV] Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died--more than that, who was raised--who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.   [Rom 8:35 ESV] Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?


A few more Justice Verses. [Rom 10:10 ESV] For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.   [1Co 6:11 ESV] And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God .   [Gal 2:16 ESV] yet we know that a person is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, so we also have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law, because by works of the law no one will be justified.   [Gal 3:11 ESV] Now it is evident that no one is justified before God by the law, for "The righteous shall live by faith."


Way Is Hard [Mat 7:13 ESV] "Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. [Mat 7:14 ESV] For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.


Suffer in the body. [1Pe 4:1 NIV] Therefore, since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because whoever suffers in the body is done with sin. [1Pe 4:2 NIV] As a result, they do not live the rest of their earthly lives for evil human desires, but rather for the will of God. [1Pe 4:3 NIV] For you have spent enough time in the past doing what pagans choose to do--living in debauchery, lust, drunkenness, orgies, carousing and detestable idolatry. [1Pe 4:4 NIV] They are surprised that you do not join them in their reckless, wild living, and they heap abuse on you.


Work out your Salvation [ Phl 2:12 NIV] Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed--not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence-- continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, [ Phl 2:13 NIV] for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.


[ Deu 6:5 ESV] You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
