God loves you and me; let us love one another.
“To me, the very least of all saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unfathomable riches of Christ, and to bring what is the administration of the mystery which for the ages has been hidden in God who created all things; so that the manifold wisdom of God might be now made known through the church to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly places. This was in accordance with the eternal purpose which He carried out in Christ Jesus our Lord, in whom we have boldness and confident access through faith in Him.” Ephesians 3:8:12 (NASB)
Our riches in Christ assure access to God. Just as money in the bank is of no use to us when the bank is closed, grace without access would mean very little. But the Christian never has to worry about God being inaccessible. In fact, God is always willing to reveal His grace to us through His mighty deeds. Someone has said that most Christians are so subnormal in their spiritual lives that when God does what He deems as normal, they think it is abnormal. God is willing to demonstrate His power in the world. Yet some Christians often do not desire that power. They pray little. They praise God only once a week. They seldom witness to others about is mighty deeds. Christians need to stop being timid about accessing the grace of God and pouring it out as we share it with others who need to know Him.
People often ask me, “Why did Jesus choose Judas to be one of His disciples?” My question is, “Why did He choose me?”
“God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8 (NKJV)
Daily prayers eliminate daily cares
“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid. Remember what I told you: I am going away, but I will come back to you again. If you really love Me, you would be happy that I am going to the Father, who is greater than I am.”
John 14:27-28 (NLT)
“Oh that You would bless me indeed and enlarge my border, and that Your hand might be with me, and that You would keep me from harm that it may not pain me.”
1 Chronicles 4:10 (NASB)
