Our hope is not in the last ballot counted in our elections. Our Hope is in the Lord Jesus Christ!
Last Sunday in our Bible Study, we celebrated the truth of God’s Word. We celebrated that we are in Christ and our hearts were filled with praise and thanksgiving that our sins are forgiven. We rejoiced that we are in HIM!
In the book of Genesis, Eve is revealed as a type of the Church. Adam gave himself for Eve. He was not tricked. Adam was not deceived. Adam didn’t want to be separated from Eve, so he also ate of the fruit.
The illustration from the Word of God:
- Eve is a type of the church as in her relationship to Adam. Genesis 2:22—God brought her to Adam.
- Eve is a type of the church in her creation. Genesis 2:21— Eve is out of Adam. Ephesians 5:25—Jesus said that He gave himself
- Eve is a type of the church in her identification. Genesis 2:23—Adam said, This is now bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh:…
As Eve is in Adam, the rib, we are in Christ. From the cross, Jesus’ side was opened that we could be grafted in. Praise the Lord!
God the Father doesn’t see my sins or shortcomings, He only sees His Son, Jesus. We are in Him.
Thank you for being faithful!
You are loved,
Pastor and Muzette
