“I know that my Redeemer lives, and one day…though worms shall destroy my body, I shall see God with my own eyes and behold Him. How my heart yearns for that day!” (Job 19:25-26)

Read Paul’s letter to the Romans. Christ’s atoning death paid the ransom for all sins… past, present, and future. His redemption freely gives believers a multitude of everlasting gifts. It is a glorious display of bedazzling “fireworks” for the spirit of every believer.
