I know you can't really have favorites...but this shirt has definitely been one of our new favorites!! AND these are some of the most comforting and HOPE-filled verses. As believers, I think we can get caught up in our crazy busy lives and forget what's most important: Jesus. The verses we put on this tee are such good reminders of that! They not only remind us who we are without Jesus and but they also point us to the grace and mercy God showed us.
If you haven't heard Ephesians 2:4-5 before it says:
"But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus."
In the verses before this it shows that we literally had no hope because of our sin and the consequences of sin is death and separation from God.
Then it says "BUT GOD..."
This is where the good news of the GOSPEL comes in! God loved us and showed us mercy that we didn't deserve through sending JESUS to die for our sins!
So no matter how busy or how tough our lives are, it's so encouraging to be reminded of God's grace and love for us through Jesus. Hope this encourages you today! Apart from Jesus we have NO hope. But because of Jesus and what he did for us...we've got the greatest hope!
