Sometimes I think about how I have been given salvation and I feel the freedom and joy of that redemption. It is a GOOD feeling, but I also think how unworthy I was and that none of it is because of me. I reflect on what a gracious and merciful Lord I serve and the gifts he has given me that I do not deserve. And, I praise Him for the grace and mercy.
4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
So, not much more to say today other than to give Him all the glory and to thank Him.
Lord, I praise Your Holy Name and thank You for the gift of salvation, for the redemption of my sins when I was so unworthy of the sacrifice Christ made for me. I pray in Jesus name that You continue Your work in me and help me to become at least a little worthy of all the grace and mercy I have been given. Please draw my loved ones to You that we all know Your mercy and the salvation You will give if one only believe in Christ and ask forgiveness of their sins.
