Never get over the shock of the gospel!
Published June 14th, 2022
Main point summary
Against all human reason and intuition, God has redeemed his enemies through the death of his Son so that he can make them like his Son, and this unshakeable purpose gives us cause to cling to the Son.
z And you,
who once were alienated
and hostile in mind,
a doing evil deeds,
he has now reconciled
b in his body of flesh
by his death,
c in order to present you holy
and d above reproach before him,
e if indeed you continue in the faith,
f stable and steadfast,
not shifting from g the hope of the gospel that you heard,
which has been proclaimed
h in all creation 1 under heaven,
i and of which I, Paul, became a minister.
