Grace

As my family and I have been struggling with Saten and issues that have happened in our family, it is always a great reminder to lean in The Lord and open our hearts and let him more and more.
I am doing an online bible study and the book is called The Promised One.




Such a good book about the Old Testament .
Today I was reading about Noah and the Ark and how his family and him were saved from the floods because he listened to God and did everything God asked him to.
To me, this is so the way it should be. Walk with God, talk with God, listen to God.
It also reminded me of a great verse, that is in the book.
"God so loved the world, that he gave his only son,that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16)
I then read about God's Grace and if we have God's Grace, and the good news is at the end if every story is that if we found God's grace, we do not have to fear the mistakes we made in the past, the future, but enjoy his covenant . His everlasting covenant.
The book listed some bullet points that made it so very clear to me.
~ Grace invites you to walk with God and away from the world.
~ Grace empowers you over the long haul.
~ Grace keeps you from having to endure the wrath of God you deserve.
~ Grace promises you that the storms in your life are not punishment for your failures but preparation for your fruitfulness.
~ Grace covers your sin so completely that it cannot be canceled out by your bad behavior.
It is there,on the other side of your repentance, to woo you back and welcome you home.
~ Grace binds you to Christ so that neither death nor life, nor angles nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers,nor height nor depth,not anything else in all creation,will be able to separate you from the love if God in Christ Jesus our lord.
{Rom. 8:38-39}








And just because.....
