GOD HAD A PURPOSE

2 Timothy 1:9 (CEB) “God is the one who saved and called us with a holy calling. This wasn’t based on what we have done, but it was based on his own purpose and grace that he gave us in Christ Jesus before time began.”

There is absolutely nothing we can do to get into heaven on our own. Do you realize that? God chose to create us for His own good pleasure and He chose to save us when we fell from grace. You can either choose to believe that or choose to blow it off as utter nonsense. That’s because when God created us He gave us a free will to decide things for ourselves. God wanted us to worship and serve Him out of conscience choice and not out of obligation; because we WANTED to, not because we HAD to. The salvation we elected to receive from Him wasn’t based on anything we have done or even anything we COULD have done.

The choices we make in this life define who we become. If we choose to serve Christ we are from that point identified with Christ and accountable to Him. He is not a tough task master. As Nehemiah puts it: “You are God, ready to pardon, gracious and merciful, slow to anger, abundant in kindness.” (Nehemiah 9:17b) God had His own reasons for what He has done, what He is doing and what He will do. Don’t bother trying to figure it out, you never could. He gave us Christ Jesus. It was His plan. God knew we would fall and had a plan ready and waiting to restore us to HImself. Who is like our God? No one. That is why He is Almighty and we are not. Submit yourself to Christ and bask in His unfathomable mercy and grace.

WALK WITH THE KING TODAY AND BE A BLESSING!
