I don’t deserve this!

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9.

Verses chosen from today’s Bible reading: Ecclesiastes 103, Psalm 45, and Ephesians 2.

God paves the way for us to get to Him His Way.

We will never be good enough.

We will never be worthy.

He made us but our sins will keep us from Him in the after-life.

However, God provided a way for our sin problem to be eliminated: Jesus, God’s Son, took on the punishment our sins deserved.

So we are right with God, even though we actually are wrong with God!

It is a remarkable thing to think about: our life after death.

This world will eventually be our residence.  And what a place it will be!  There will be no decay.  There will be no aches and pains.  And the list goes on.

How much God loves us.

“Lord, thank You for taking care of me.  I believe that You have taken care of my sin problem.  I look forward to an eternity with You in a place that You have restored to the way it was supposed to be.  What a day that will be.  Thank You, Father.”

You’re right, you don’t deserve what God has done BUT He did it anyhow.  Respond accordingly.

St. Lucia
