God's Amazing Gift

 

Good morning!

I wanted to share a great little devotional that I read from Max Lucado this morning:

A cynic asked an elderly woman about the security of her salvation. He said, “How can you be so sure that after all these years God won’t let you sink into hell?” Her answer: “He would lose more than I would. All I would lose would be my own soul, but He would lose his good name.”

What a gift God has given to you! You’ve won the greatest lottery in the history of humanity, and you didn’t even pay for the ticket. Your soul is secure, your salvation guaranteed. Your name is written in the only book that matters. This is the message of God, the promise of grace. The Bible says “there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ” (Romans 8:1). This is a promise from God. And because God’s promises are unbreakable our hope is unshakable!

When I read this, it just stirred up immense feelings of gratefulness for all God has done for me in my life. Can we take some time this week to just thank God for his amazing grace in our lives? Thank him for loving us and saving us, when we were among the least deserving, and ask God to bring people our way this week who need some encouragement that only comes from knowing Jesus! 

Thanks for partnering with me in prayer!

Onward,

Pastor Wes
