HIS GRACE IS AMAZING

HIS GRACE IS AMAZING

Titus 3:5 (NKJV) Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit.

Works, works, works!  So many are caught up in works, but God is caught up in relationship. Now I am not saying works are bad.  In fact, we will be rewarded for the works that we do here on the earth.  But too many churches preach that the only way to please God is to do works.

This verse shows us that we are saved by His mercies, and that it is a work of the Holy Spirit.  It says in Ephesians 2:8-9, ”For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.”  You see, salvation is a free gift.  It is God saying man cannot save himself, so He will give Himself for us.

What amazing love the Father has for us!  He knew we could not do it, so He did it for us.  When we work for God, let us not let our love for Him be because of works, but because we love Him so much that we want to help as many people get to know Him as possible.  The Father loves us all, and He desires that none perish, but that all be saved.  So when I work for the kingdom, I work with this mindset.

I want to be a vessel that can be used by the Father for the needs of others.  I want my life to be one that reaches to the farthest places in my prayers, or in my giving.  But in doing this, I need to do it for love and not to earn points with God.  I am saved today because of this great love that God had for me, and I did not deserve it or earn it.  It was His work and I receive it freely, and now I want to give it to as many as possible!

CONFESSION: I am saved today by God’s great love for me.  I could not earn it, and I sure did not deserve it, yet God, in His great love, gave it to me.  Thank You Father for this amazing love that you have given to me!
