Sunday Encouragement

encourage

If this is your day for rest, like us all you still need encouragement. Be encouraged by this wonderful scripture from Romans 8 verse 29:

“For those He foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brothers.”

God has predestined His people to be conformed to to the image of His Son, that is, to be like Christ Jesus.

Predestined His people, all who accept through repentance, what Our Lord and Our Friend did on the Cross, are predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son.

There is a line of thought, that not all people are predestined, for God’s purpose. That thought is actually saying, God favors some more than others.

Predestined is talking about ALL, who ask Christ to be their Lord, their Savor, their Redeemer. We come out of the kingdom of the wold, into the Kingdom of God, the people in the Kingdom of God, become those predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son.

God gave us all free will for free choices, to accept or not to accept. Our Creator God is Loving and Awesome, but He wouldn’t force anyone to accept His Son. People who do not accept, by the free Will, He has given us all,  will lose the chance to be conformed into His Son. When we accept, we accept what has been predestined by God, to become His people and be conformed into the image of His Son.

It is not saying some people are predestined to be saved, that would mean God loves some people more than others. God doesn’t have favorites, but He is proud of those willing to follow the plans He has for each one of us.

For God so LOVED that He GAVE {John 3 verse 16} that a ‘whosoever’ can come, which rules out that somebody is predestined to be saved.

The offer is always there, for a ‘whosoever’ to  come, and by coming and accepting, be conformed into the image of Christ Jesus. The Offer is for all who accept to have a transformed life.

Be Blessed Today And Everyday.
