  The Amazing Benefits Package 
God has for His Children 

Lesson by Stacy Williams

Psalm 103:2-4, “Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits— who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion…”

Most companies usually have benefits packages that are provided to its employees. These benefits packages include benefits and privileges beyond an employee’s regular wage. Once you become an employed member of a company’s organization, you are entitled to the benefits that company offers.

Being a child of God comes with many benefits far greater than any company could offer. The sacrifice that Jesus made on the cross allows us to become children of God. If we are children of God, then we are entitled to all of the benefits offered to us in Christ. Psalm 103:2-4 lists some of the many benefits believers receive as children of God.

1) Forgiveness of sins – Christ’s death and resurrection paid our sin debt. As children of God, we have forgiveness for all of our sins.

Ephesians 1:7-8, “In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us.”

2) Healing from disease – When Jesus died for forgiveness of our sins, he also provided for our healing.

1 Peter 2:24, “He himself bore our sins in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.”

3) Redemption from the “pit” – Christ’s atoning death has bought us back (redeemed us) from death, destruction, and an eternity separated from Him.

Colossians 1:13-14, “For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.”

4) Covering of love and compassion – Christ love and compassion covers and encircles us as a crown encircles one’s head.

1 John 3:1, “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!”
