We learned so many good things in excellent privileges part 1, and there are just as many to learn today, I hope you are excited to learn the Excellent Privileges we have in God our Father and in Jesus His Son, and we are told that Jesus is our Friend and Brother too, as well as our Attorney in court. We are so privileged, I am getting happier by the day, learning all these things. How about you?
Hebrews 2:10,11 "For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. For both He who sanctifies and those who are being sanctified are all of one, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren." Privilege number 7 is
the kinship we have with Jesus who is not ashamed to call us His brethren (and sisters).
2 Peter 1:4 "By which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust."
Privilege number 8 is that we have been given the privilege of being a partaker of His divine nature, escaping the corruption in this world through lust.
John 16:23 "And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you. Privilege number 9, is assured answers to prayer, God is never too busy to hear the least little prayer offered in sincerity.
Romans 5:10 "For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled,we shall be saved by His life." Privilege number 10 we are reconciled to God through the death of His Son Jesus.
Romans 8:37-39 "Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers., nor things present nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Principle number 10 is Victorious Living in Christ Jesus our Lord.
What privileges we have when we form a close relationship with Christ and spend time in His presence each day!!!! What more could we ask for? I can't think of anything better than having a close walk with the King of the Universe, can you? Let's make that our goal, shall we? Grandma Joan
