Christ’s sufferings saved you from your own sins. He pronounced you knew in him breathing the life of Jesus back into you. Living for the Lord is making decisions based on the will of God and not your own selfish desires.
The former things you once accepted as your reality are no longer for you. When you accepted Christ you welcomed God’s purposes for your life on growth to a new beginning for you.

The Father of compassion is waiting to welcome you to a place filled with glory and overwhelming love. Christ Jesus is defeating the very power that has held many hostages.
The predestination is that everything that is not of the name of Christ will be destroyed or left behind by the result of sin.
