Insights from a Glory-Bound Lady”
Volume 4 Number 29 “Three Blessings that Highly Impacted Karen’s Life!”
July 21, 2021
One of several things about Karen that really caught my attention in high school was that she openly lived for Christ, and she possessed a joy that many around did not have. The more I got to know her, the more I discovered her desire to serve the Lord and know His will.
Many years later, Karen was speaking at a ladies’ event. She was speaking about the great privileges we possess as well as the great opportunities that the Lord gives to us. For this week, we’ll look at the privileges. Let me share two verses that were in her notes.
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” (Romans 12:1-2).
Karen wrote: Do you take time to reflect upon the cost of your salvation and what it has given you? Not only have we been rescued from the eternal torments of hell; but we have the privilege of experiencing the following.
We have adoption and are joint heirs with Christ (Romans 8:14-17).
We have assurance and know that Heaven is our Home (John 14:1-3).
We have access and can come to the Father through Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:18).
Michael’s observation: In her handwritten notes she reminded folks that there are many more privileges afforded the believer. These three really impacted her life. They really impact me, too. Think about these today, and they will be powerful in your life as well.
