Privileged position before God

I read something so encouraging this morning that reminded me of the highlights of what we have in Christ.
Far greater than living longer and enjoying ourselves and our circumstances is the unfathomable richness of our life together with God, reconciled even while we were enemies, made alive even while we were spiritually dead, brought near even while we were strangers, and adopted as coheirs of the entire estate even while we were hostile to the things of God. Even now we begin to enjoy a foretaste of this feast, as those for whom “there is therefore now no condemnation.” --Michael Horton in Christless Christianity
That truly is good news. And that is what Jesus accomplished for those who repent and believe in Him.
