Grace is so powerful
How is this word so powerful.
I am a sinner in need of a savior.
I may try every day to be better, yet I fail daily.
The only perfection in everything is God.
To understand that GRACE is UNMERITED favor. To know we are UNDESERVING of our salvation, yet JESUS chose to suffer and take the place of a murderer on the cross to show us that SALVATION is HIM.
Yes we can live a life of sacrifice through religious ways and not be in relationship with Jesus.
The cross is mercy over sacrifice.
The cross is grace over law.
The cross is LOVE.
The cross is GOD choosing unmerited favor be granted to all who choose to believe in Jesus Christ as their only Lord and Savior.
We can live a blessed life on this side of eternity. How? Repent and be baptize and choose to Love your neighbor as you love yourself.
Let say I am your neighbor, I scream at my kids. (I am a homeschool mom, its bound to happen sometimes.) Careful not to stumble by judging me, please!!! I am imperfect!!! (Just giving an example.) I can stumble. I am NOT perfect. Remember God will be working on my character for the rest of my life. Just because I am Christian, it does not mean I am perfect. I fail and I stumble just like everyone else. Its how fast I choose to get back UP of that rut or failure that make us live in HOPE, FAITH, and LOVE.
Is God going to love me less for stumbling. NO(this is grace).
God knows my sins past, present, and FUTURE.
Do you really think you can shock your Creator?
Is God going to stop helping me for thinking wrong of people? NO(grace), yet He does ask us to repent and turn to Him to be washed from our evil ways. Basically the more of Jesus in my walk of life, then I will be silencing the voices of defeat, sadness, rejection, emptiness and so on…
To live by GRACE = unmerited favor.
We need to grow in Jesus Love daily. When we grow in His love we choose what HE loved more than our desires. This helps us build a life full of peace that surpasses all understanding.
If you choose to follow JESUS…
Its a MUST to read your BIBLE daily. Please READ READ READ even when you can’t understand. Your soul is being nourished even when your mind does not understand it yet.
May the Lord bless you. May you have eyes to see and ears to hear how much He loves you daily even when you and I do not deserve it.
