The Grace of God

"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."  Ephesians 2:8-9

 

"For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. 4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, 5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; 6 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; 7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life." Titus 3:3–7

 

With our sins forgiven, we can receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.  This blessing is not attributed to any work or merit of our own, but by the grace of God.

If

The word “if” appears in the Bible over 1,600 times. The dictionary defines “if” as a condition or requirement. Salvation is contingent on our willingness to accept conditions and meet the requirements. Several “if” verses Jesus spoke:

For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:”  Matthew 6:14

If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?”  Matthew 7:11

If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?”  Luke 12:28

“If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”  John 8:36

“If ye love me, keep my commandments.”  John 14:15

“If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.”  John 15:7

In Memory of Cameron Williams

July 1, 1996 - October 6, 2011

I want to live like that
And give it all I have
So that everything I say and do
Points to You
If love is who I am
Then this is where I'll stand
Recklessly abandoned
Never holding back
I want to live like that
I want to live like that

Words by Sidewalk Prophets from song, "Live Like That".

Be Diligent

The Bible calls for us to be diligent in many areas of our walk with God. Deuteronomy 4:9 says, “Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons' sons”.

But what exactly does diligent mean? Dictionary.com says that it is "constant in effort to accomplish something; attentive and persistent in doing anything".

The passage above calls for us not only to remember past miracles we have experienced, but to keep them in our hearts and teach to our children and grandchildren. We must do this with persistence and passion so that our families understand what it means to trust in God. They need to understand that they can expect the same level of miracles in their own lives.

I would like to challenge everyone this week to share one wonderful miracle with a younger member of your family. Not just share it, but tell the story with all the emotions that came with it. This will make it real for them and bring it back to our remembrance. Our diligence will pay off!!

Positive Associations

I heard someone say last week, "who we spend time with is who we become," and I thought how true this is for all aspects of our lives. Two questions came to my mind that are worthy for everyone to ask themselves:

1. How much time do we spend with those who uplift us?

2. And, on the other hand, how much time do we spend with those who bring us down?

Hebrews 12:1-2 states, "Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God."

Our fellowship with God and His people is special and provides us strength!! I challenge everyone to spend more time around those who uplift Christ and in turn uplift us.
