Now that we are friends

"For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life." - Romans 5:10
When God was our enemy he loved us so much he gave Jesus to die for our sins and make us his own.

Now that he is our friend, how can we think he would reject us for our shortcomings and failures?!

It is time for those who have covenanted1 with Christ, to stop looking at difficulties as God's anger and start seeing them as God's allowed opportunities to grow up and experience his life in real circumstances.

Seizing this one fact changes us, seasons us, and makes us more like the people we always wanted to be but had no ability to become.

Ever see a child after conquering a major (to them) problem? That's how children become mature adults! Us too.
