How Divinely Glorious!
The true believer hates and resists those sins which once he loved and renounces that world which once so much enamored him.
How divinely glorious is the religion of Jesus! Old things pass away and behold, all things become new!
It turns the lion, into the lamb. It turns the desert heart, into the garden of the Lord. It converts the impure and savage heart, into a habitation fit for the mild and holy Dove. It restores the Hell-bent sinner to the divine favor. It transforms him into the divine image. It redeems him from the depths of damnation. It raises him to the highest seats in glory!
What tongue can speak, or what heart conceive, the richness and extent of divine redemption!
Colossians 1:13-14 ... Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
Ephesians 1:7-8 ... In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;
2 Corinthians 9:15 ... Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.❤
