God’s amazing care

How the eternal Triune God unfolded His plan of salvation is remarkable.  At certain times in history God revealed His plan to build a nation through Jesus.  It is written, 

‘But when the time had fully come, God sent His Son, born of a woman, born under law, to redeem those under law, that we might have the full rights of sons.’  Galatians 4:4

Paul writes, 

‘But join with me in suffering for the Gospel, by the power of God, who has saved us and called us to a holy life  — not by anything we have done, but because of His own purpose and grace.’  2 Timothy 1:8b,9a

Now for the miracle, 

‘This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time….’  2 Timothy 1:9b

But the ‘grace in Christ Jesus’ was only revealed about four thousand years after the beginning of time (time began with creation).  For us that great event happened about two thousand years ago, 

‘…but has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought immortality to light through the Gospel.’  2 Timothy 1:10

The eternal Holy Spirit was connected to Jesus, 

‘He [God] saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior.’ Titus 3:5b

Conclusion

At certain times in history God’s people come to faith, because His precious Son and wonderful Holy Spirit appeared to bring us to the Faith,

‘But the Scripture declares that the whole world is a prisoner of sin, so that what was promised, being given through faith in Jesus Christ, might be given to those who believe.’  Galatians 3:22
