You have one task: Keep your eyes on Jesus.
We were in a place we've no business to be; He took hold of us.
He has called us Heavenward. We are to live up to what we have already attained.
We no longer live as slaves to sin and death, but as joint-heirs with Jesus!
The Shift: From slave to child.
He chose you; He is not stuck with you.
(nt: think adoptive parent choosing the child)
You can be redeemed!
A reminder of how special you are.
Now, don't gloat.
