TODAY’S STUDY
The Unconditional Love in Our Hearts Comes From the Spirit
 
Therefore when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And He bowed His head and gave up His spirit.
 
…and He Himself (the Lord Jesus Christ) bore our sins in His (own) body (in His true humanity) on the Cross, so that we might die to (the sovereignty of the) sin (nature) and (so that we might) live to righteousness (within its sphere); for by His wounds you were healed.
 
“Greater (unconditional) love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.”
 
We love (unconditionally), because He (God the Father) first loved us (unconditionally).
 
 
 
The one who does not love (unconditionally) does not know God (the Father), for God (the Father) is (unconditional) love.
 
Be(come) kind (thoughtful) to one another, tender-hearted (compassionate toward others), (graciously) forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.
 
THE LORD’S SUPPER
Enjoying the Elements
 
For I (Paul) received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus (Christ) in the night in which He was betrayed took bread; //and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “This is (and keeps on being) My body, which is (broken) for you; (keep on) do(ing) this in (the purpose of) remembrance of Me.”
 
In the same way He (the Lord Jesus Christ) took the cup (representing His death on the Cross) also after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant (testament) in (the sphere of) My blood (through spiritual and physical death); (keep on) do(ing) this, as often as you drink it, in (the purpose of) remembrance of Me.//For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.”

When I Think About Home
 
QUESTION FOR REFLECTION
Do you live in the sphere of God’s peace?
Therefore, having been justified by (means of) faith (by being legally declared by God to be in the sphere of God’s absolute righteousness in the past), we (believers in Christ now) have peace with God (the Father) through our Lord Jesus Christ…
 
QUESTION FOR REFLECTION
Do you live in the sphere of God’s grace?
…(the Lord Jesus Christ) through whom also (additionally) we have obtained our introduction (direct access to God) by (means of our) faith (that we expressed in the past) into this (sphere of) grace in which we stand (right now)…
 
GRACE 
A free gift given to all mankind by the Creator, expressed by His actions of extending mercy, loving-kindness, salvation, and divine assets to His Creatures… a dimension of divine thought in which God meets human indifference and rebellion with an inexhaustible capacity to forgive and to bless…a divine thought process that underlies God’s entire viewpoint of unconditional love for His Creatures.
 
QUESTION FOR REFLECTION
Do you live in the sphere of God’s glory?
…and we exult (with inward confidence) in (the future) hope (the confident expectation) of the glory of God.
 
“I (the Lord Jesus Christ) will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper (a Parakletos), that He (God the Holy Spirit) may be with you forever…”
 
PROCLAMATION
Because I am a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, through faith alone in the Lord Jesus Christ alone at a single moment in time, I can look back at the Cross, and I can ACCEPT as an established and irrevocable fact that I AM at peace with God, fully forgiven; I can ACCEPT as an established and irrevocable fact that I HAVE a grace in which to stand and my mistakes will never again be counted against me; and I can ACCEPT as an established and irrevocable fact that I WILL live in glory at a future time, because I know the best is yet to come in my life.
 
QUESTION FOR REFLECTION
What do you have to look forward to as a result of your justification by faith?
 
And not only this (peace, this sphere of grace in which to stand, and this hope of glory), but we (believers in Christ) also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance;//and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope…
 
…and hope does not disappoint (put us to shame), because the (unconditional) love of God (the Father) has been poured out within our hearts through (God) the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
 
Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, //knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.
 
PERSEVERANCE
The ability to endure difficulties without quitting
 
PROVEN CHARACTER
Distinctive qualities that make the maturing Christian obviously different from others
 
HOPE
The absolute confidence that God can and will deliver us in every circumstance
 
Now He who establishes us with you in (union with) Christ and (He who) anointed us is God (the Father),//who also sealed us and gave us (God) the (Holy) Spirit in our hearts as a pledge.
 
You (believers in Christ) are our letter, written in our hearts, known and read by all men;//being manifested (made visible) that you are a letter of Christ, cared for by us, written not with ink but with the (Holy) Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.
