    Jesus came to save the lost ones. We are grateful for the ransom of Jesus because without this ransom we would still be lost and with no chance of survival.

    Knowing that Jesus is looking forward to a new day to be present with us, not in body but through the Holy Spirit is an awesome feeling and just knowing that, I have something to look forward to as a believer in Christ. Also, in the Spirit no matter where one lives, he will be with us all. He is omnipresent. Thanks God for Jesus and His amazing grace.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Like the lord in verse 27, Jesus is willing to forgive all our sins so we can be blameless when we appear before Him at His Judgement Seat. We should also adopt the same posture of forgiving all those who trespass against us, countless times.
