Saturday, April 1st
This is an all-day conference to be held at Exodus Church Belmont. The day will be filled with food, fun, and planned activities as well as Gloria’s gospel-focused teaching.
Being placed by God “in Christ” is no mere word play—it is a cosmic reality. To think that God would seat us with Christ in the heavenly places is astonishing. How can this be true of us even in the middle of our daily lives? And further… Why? Why would God place us in Christ forever? Why would God do this for us, sinners who deserve his wrath? Ephesians tells us it is “so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.” This is astonishing.
All our striving in the sins in which we once walked, all the chains that shackle us to this world, all the ungodly passions which held us captive, all the holy wrath of God that we justly deserved—because of Jesus and his work on the cross, all of this is exchanged for a show that is unlike any show we have ever enjoyed before. The riches of his grace are immeasurable. Our best efforts to understand this just grasp at the edges of eternity. We have so much to look forward to. We have so much to praise his glorious grace for!
Because of Jesus, we get to enjoy the immeasurable riches of God’s grace now and throughout the coming ages. We get to live out this reality together: we are alive in Christ. From the mundane moments to the once-in-a-lifetime moments. Every day all day— in the valleys and on the mountaintops— we are alive in Christ—now and forever. The love of Christ changes everything.
