November 15, 2016 – Ephesians 1:6-7

ephesians1-6-7bSo we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son. He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. Ephesians 1:6-7Praising God is the full-time work of Grace.  Awareness of God fills us with an ever new purpose each day.  Our life overflows with joy because of His Kindness and glory.Amazing love! How can it be? Amazing love! how can it be That thou, my God shouldst die for me?  These words from an old hymn begins my praise to God.  How can it be that the Creator of the Universe loves you and me so?  He provides salvation from sin through Jesus as a gift when we believe. His Word transforms us and it becomes a part of who we are in Jesus.God hates wickedness and sin.  He lives by the Golden Rule. Do unto others as you would they do unto you.  Our Lord God gives us a gift of freedom from sins we all do. All He want is that we come humbly to Him, believing, trusting, and loving with all kindness!  He chose us before the world was created to be His. He knows our thoughts and what we will say even before we do.All the hurts and detours in our lives simply prepare us for Heaven where there are no hurts or detours, and no tears or ‘might have beens’.Memorizing verses from the Bible and remembering them all day is a way of knowing God’s Presence on earth. Reading a verse over and over is the way to place in our hearts the meaning from God. One day, we will see Jesus, the Jesus who loves you and me, face to face!  Oh, Happy Day!

 God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. Ephesians 2:8-9
