God’s love holds us in a heavenly realm

How great is God’s love for us!

Because of the richness
of His mercy,
we are no longer dead
but are alive together
in the grace of Christ
by Whom we have
been saved.

With Christ,
God lifts us up
and sets us in
a heavenly realm
where we will be able to see
the mind-boggling abundance
of grace given to us
through Christ Jesus.

By the grace of God,
we have been saved –
not by ourselves,
not by our works,
and not by anything
we can boast about,
but by the Gift of God,
given to us.

For we are God’s creation –
recreated and born anew –
in Christ Jesus
to walk in His goodness
and do all we have been
prepared and given to do.
