Rejoice in what God has done!

“I will greatly rejoice in the Lord; my soul shall exult in my God, for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation; he has covered me with the robe of righteousness, … ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭61:10‬ ‭ESV
“Let the righteous one rejoice in the Lord and take refuge in him! Let all the upright in heart exult!”

‭‭Psalm‬ ‭64:10‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it— the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins. It was to show his righteousness at the present time, so that he might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭3:21-26‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Augustine: faith, hope and love

“…faith refers to things past and present and future. For we believe that Christ died; this is a past event. We believe that he sitteth at the Father’s right hand; this is present. We believe that he will come as our judge; this is future.”

get this and you get the point of disciple making: HIS glory

“For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”‭‭Romans‬ ‭15:4-6‬ ‭ESV‬‬
