Long Overdue Enjoyment!!!

Hello Fellow Crazy Lovers of Jesus! ๐Ÿ˜€

As usual, it’s been an eternity since I last wrote something: this semester of Berkeley has been super BUSY!!! Since I don’t know where to begin, I’ll just begin from tonight’s Bible Study, which was on Ephesians 2:1-10.

I was particularly touched about our humble beginnings as ones dead in offenses and sins, and then God’s great love and mercy towards us in Christ Jesus.

“And you, though dead in your offenses and sins…But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us” (v.1,3)

I enjoyed the words “but God”! Hallelujah for such a declaration by the apostle Paul! Due to God’s great love and mercy, He put all of the believers in Christ such that we could be identified with Him in His death, resurrection (v. 5), and ascension to be seated in the heavenlies (v.6). Thus, it is in Christ that we have been created to be God’s masterpiece. Before, our position was below the earth, but now, in Christ, our position is heavenly! We have been identified with the resurrected and ascended Christ!

There’s so much more to be said concerning this free gift of grace given to all the believers and how we have been made God’s masterpiece, the Body of Christ, in order to express Christ in all our actions, but time does not allow! In any case, may the Lord have mercy on me and on this blog so that the riches of Christ may be ministered to all the ones who stop by.

Grace be with you from Christians on Campus at UC Berkeley! ๐Ÿ˜€

P.S. Here’s a question for whoever would like to comment or respond: according to the context of Ephesians chapter 1 and 2, what do you think are the ‘good works which God prepared beforehand’ for the believers to walk in, mentioned in verse 10 of chapter 2?
