Because of his great love for us… (Ephesians 2:4, NIV)

Think about all that God’s love has done: God made us alive with Christ.  God raised us up with Christ.  God seated us in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus.  We are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works (Ephesians 2:5, 6, 7, 10).

O that God would bring you to a place, not only of seeing your sin—your deadness toward God, your captivity to the sinful nature, and the righteous judgment of God—but that you’d also see the love of God in Jesus Christ and say, “Lord Jesus, I knew you loved me, but I never knew you loved me like this!”

Did you notice that everything God has done for us is tied to Jesus Christ?  Your new life and faith are in Christ.  Your new strength comes from Christ.  Your salvation is through Christ.  Your works are for Christ.  Your heaven will be with Christ.  All of these blessings are found in him, and none of them are yours without him.

When people ask, “Is Jesus the only way?” the question we should ask is, “The only way to what?”  Who else gives new life?  Who else rose from the dead and is able to raise the dead?  Who else is seated at the right hand of the Father?

All these gifts of God’s love are ours in Christ.  None of them could ever be ours without him.  That’s why we worship him as Savior, Redeemer, Master, and Lord.  No one else is like him; no one else can do what Christ can do.

Do you see God’s love in all that he has done for you in Christ?

God did all these things for you
