Grace Nuggets - Jesus Our Affection



Every promise of God has its completion in Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the Way, the Truth and the Life.  All the purposes and plans of God are wrapped up in Christ and before time Christ had our names written on the palms of His hands.

We live and breathe in a world that is strewn with barricades and has put up walls to make us feel blind to the love of the Father through Christ. But God’s desire for us is that we feast on the finished work of His son. God sent his son into the world not to condemn us but to release us into abundant, everlasting life.

But how do we receive all that God wants us to have? By fixing our eyes on Christ. Desire comes first by peering at the object of our affection. When we see Jesus in all his goodness, all his love, all his beauty and the fountain of eternal unmerited grace, we will slowly become more like him.

When we see Him in all his beautiful grace, we fall deeper in love with him. We realise with overwhelming delight that we are now Sons of God and joint-heirs with Christ and that Christ is totally united inside of us, closer than a lover, by the power of the Holy Spirit.
