Monuments of Grace

Trophies represent victories, and as recipients of God’s grace we stand as monuments of all that He has done. There are none righteous, not one. But God, who is rich in mercy, has chosen to use us, His people, to make a statement to Satan about who He is.

Satan despises the grace of God, so it should come as no surprise that grace is exactly what God uses to bring about His most glorious victories. Through grace, the Father, Son, and Spirit give us all that we do not deserve. We have His righteousness and an eternal position, seated above principalities and powers.

The day will come when we will be in heaven in our glorified bodies, and we shall be as He is. He Who began a good work in us will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ (Philippians 1:6). Jesus Christ has given us the free gift of grace and the abundance of His righteousness.

Throughout eternity, believers will be on display as God's precious masterpieces, valued higher than all the angels. We accept what He has done and who He is, and in so doing, we purify ourselves on the basis of His work on Calvary, His work in us, His work for us, and His work through us. He will always be for us. And if God is for us, who can be against us (Romans 8:31)?
