For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. Ephesians 2:8-9 ESV
2 Chronicles 28
It is so beneficial to live God’s way which is never burdensome. It is the world that burdens people with sin.
We should be appalled at what is to come on the earth before the return or our Lord. Lord, help my faith that I can stand up to anything including death because I know that I live eternally with You.
1 Timothy 1
Love and faith matter to our Calling. The things of the world do not! Sound doctrine comes only from the Word.
12 I thank him who has given me strength, Christ Jesus our Lord, because he judged me faithful, appointing me to his service, 13 though formerly I was a blasphemer, persecutor, and insolent opponent. But I received mercy because I had acted ignorantly in unbelief, 14 and the grace of our Lord overflowed for me with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. 15 The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost. 16 But I received mercy for this reason, that in me, as the foremost, Jesus Christ might display his perfect patience as an example to those who were to believe in him for eternal life.
Is this not all of our story? Maybe the sins were different but the story is the same. I can never repay my Lord for what He has saved me from and delivered me into!
Apply Today: “And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
What is physical death compared to eternal life? Nothing, nothing at all! I am so grateful and thankful that my God changed my story! I pray that you will each let Him change yours!
I can certainly never repay what Jesus has done and continues to do daily in my life. I'm so thankful and grateful to have been found by Him. Living Gods way is so much better than the worlds, no comparison.
"I can never repay my Lord for what He has saved me from and delivered me into!" - Amen! Me, too!
Be strengthened to do things God's way by faithfully building up our holy faith with His word! Amen!
