Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman
FATHER GOD has predestined every believer to be conformed to the likeness of His Son, YESHUA. This process begins at salvation and will continue throughout your lifetime until you join Him in Heaven.
The apostle Paul is a good example of the LORD’S power to transform an unrighteous man or woman into an image-bearer of YESHUA. Paul was deeply religious before his conversion! When he met the LORD on the road to Damascus, the future apostle learned that all his religious zeal meant nothing. The only way for people to be acceptable before GOD is to receive the saving grace of MESSIAH YESHUA—He replaces our sin nature with a righteous spirit!
Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and who He justified, these He also glorified.
Paul was welcomed into the Kingdom in spite of his hostility toward the body of believers! (promoting blasphemy and punished believers). No one is beyond the LORD’S capacity to forgive. His grace is sufficient (such amazing grace)!
