His Yes Within Us

30 Mar

Whatever God has promised gets stamped with the Yes of Jesus. In him, this is what we preach and pray, the great Amen, God’s Yes and our Yes together, gloriously evident.

God affirms us, making us a sure thing in Christ, putting his Yes within us.

By his Spirit he has stamped us with his eternal pledge–a sure beginning of what he is destined to complete.

Paul of Tarsus

One Response to “His Yes Within Us”

    I love GraceQuotes! I couldn’t help but leave one I just read today:

    In the spacious love of God, our souls can lie down and rest. This love from Him is not something we must struggle for, earn, or fear to lose. It is bestowed. He has bestowed it upon us. He has chosen us. And nothing can separate us from His love. Not even we, ourselves. We are made for such a love. Our hearts yearn to be loved intimately and personally. We are created to be the object of desire and affection of One who is totally and completely in love with us.
