Already in possession

Because of Christ’s finished work,
Christians already possess 

the approval, 
the love, 
the security, 
the freedom, 
the meaning, 
the purpose, 
the protection, 
the new beginning, 
the cleansing, 
the forgiveness, 
the righteousness, 
and the rescue

we intensely long for and, 
in fact, 
look for in a thousand things smaller than Jesus every day—things transient, things incapable of delivering the goods.

The gospel is the only thing big enough to satisfy our deepest, eternal longings—both now and forever. (77, line breaks mine)
