Thought for today; I am so thankful for God’s Grace that covers my life… Paul so hit on
the nail…Romans 3:23 everyone has sinned and is far away from God’s saving
presence. 24But by the free gift of God’s grace all are put right with him
through Christ Jesus, who sets them free. 25-26 God offered him, so that by his
blood he should become the means by which people’s sins are forgiven through
their faith in him. God did this in order to demonstrate that he is righteous.
In the past he was patient and overlooked people’s sins; but in the present
time he deals with their sins, in order to demonstrate his righteousness. In
this way God shows that he himself is righteous and that he puts right everyone
who believes in Jesus.
Not one of us can stand and say I am perfect, I never drank, never smoked, never went to a
dance, never took drugs and we could go through our lists of never’s…but,
when we would get to the end of our list of never’s, there would be a
opps…”done that…but, it is not major thing, it is so minor it wouldn’t
qualify as sin…” When we try to justify something, usually it is sin for us, if for no one else…. The
definition of “sin” is that which separates us from God.
We sometimes forget the sin of gluttony, the sin of anger, the sin of separation, and there
is a long list of attitudes that we need to remember, will be just as damming
to our soul’s if we do not give them to Jesus and have Him cover them by His
We can come to the point that we are so wrapped up in everything else but the Lord… and
that then becomes our sin of separation from God…We can even be in Church and
yet be so cold it is not funny… We are to love the Lord our God with all our
soul and might… our entire being should taken(smitten) by His love for us,
and not what can He give us, but, rather that burning desire Father God how and
what can I give to you. Revelation 2:4 Nevertheless I have this against you,
that you have left your first love. God’s Grace is for you and for me…”24But by the free gift of God’s
grace…” It is a gift that has already been paid for…All God is waiting on is
for you to reach out and accept what he paid in full for…
If I can encourage you in anything it would be this, “Stop letting the devil tell you
what you are and who you are as a person…!!!” “Start believing and receiving
that Blood bought unmerited favor with God through Jesus and believe what He
has already written in heaven about you and your life….God HAS A PLAN FOR YOU
AND YOUR LIFE…!!!” Why do you think the devil is so busy trying to define you?
Because he knows when it finally seeds in your spirit that you are His (God’s)
child by Grace through the Blood of His Son…You are a threat to his little
kingdom… Satan wants to keep you seeing yourself as you are… God wants you to
see yourself in the light of His word; you are more than an overcomer through
Christ Jesus who saved you! Praise Him
for He is worthy to be praised… Grace….
