Great peace. There is no condition or situation in which we will find ourselves in life, as God's children, and over which God should not be Lord. We are not alone! God is always our refuge and peace.
Great contrast. A religion kept in human power contrasted with a religion of supernatural change in the heart. An external religion contrasted with a religion of the heart. The external religion of traditionalism of the Pharisees couldn't play as a foundation for the religion of Jesus.
Spiritual amnesia. In Christ we have wisdom for the foolishness of sin; power for the inability of sin; forgiveness for the guilt of sin; and, freedom from the slavery of sin. We must not live with spiritual amnesia, but to live out the grace given to us.
Living as saints. What a grace! Christ is pleading not on the basis of our good deeds, but on the basis of His sacrifice. A message about living our the Gospel salvation. A message about dedication, action, community and seriousness.
