THE CHURCH IS MUCH LIKE THE WOMAN IN THE BIBLE WHO HAD AN ISSUE OF BLOOD FOR TWELVE YEARS. SHE WAS FILTHY BY THE STANDARD OF THE LAW, BUT WHEN SHE TOUCHED THE HEM OF THE GARMENT OF CHRIST, SHE WAS MADE WHOLE.
(Luke 8:43) “Now a woman, having a flow of blood for twelve years, who had spent all her livelihood on physicians and could not be healed by any, came from behind and touched the border of His garment. And immediately her flow of blood stopped.”
YOU SEE, IN CHRIST, WE WERE WASHED, SANCTIFIED AND JUSTIFIED IN THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST AND BY THE SPIRIT OF OUR GOD.
(1 Cor. 6:11) “But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.”
IN CHRIST, GOD JUSTIFIED US AND CREDITS RIGHTEOUSNESS WHILE WE WERE STILL UNRIGHTEOUS.
(Rom 4:5) “However, to the man who does not work but trusts God who justifies the wicked, his faith is credited as righteousness.”
IN CHRIST, WE ARE MADE COMPLETE!
(Col. 2:9) “For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and YOU ARE COMPLETE IN HIM.” in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.”
