Love you all, praying for you,
I just love God’s Word. It is love, and life, and hope, and purpose, It’s a full job description. The greatest gift ever – is Salvation. Jesus dying in your place, so you can live forever with Him in His place, that place called Heaven where He is preparing a place for you. Sometimes people call it “the free gift of Salvation,” but nothing is free – someone had to pay for it. It cost Jesus his life. Receiving it will cost you your life, your old life, which is wonderful to get rid of. It’s entering a new kingdom, its coming under new ownership. The cost to you is nothing compared to what you get – eternal life! And much, much more. It has benefits. If you’re applying for a job, they hire qualified people. But this job you get despite being completely unqualified – actually you were disqualified, to ever be son or daughter of the living God. You get this job, not by your qualifications, but by His. You’re royalty now, and it comes with some responsibilities, but it has great benefits. The salary is eternal life – which means you are infinitely overpaid, plus the benefits are great! If you have ever worked for a large company you know the value of full benefits, not just a paycheck. Health insurance, medical, dental, vision, 401K, company car, paid vacation, company trips, clothes, full expense account. But that is laughable compared to what this job offers. God reminds us in Psalms 103 – Praise the LORD, O my soul, all my inmost being praise his holy name. Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits. He forgives your sins, all of them, he heals your diseases, all of them. He redeems your life from the pit. He crowns you with love and compassion. He satisfies your desires with good things. He renews your youth like the eagle’s. He works righteousness and justice for you, for all the oppressed. He makes His ways known to you, like He did to Moses, He makes his deeds known to you like He did for the children of Israel. He is compassionate, and gracious to you. He is slow to get angry with you, He is abounding in His love for you. He will not stay angry forever. He does not treat you as your sins deserve. He does not repay you according to your iniquities. His love for you is so great, as the heavens are above the earth – for those who fear Him. He removes your sins from you – as far as the east is from the west. He has compassion on you, like a father has on his children, He has compassion on those who fear him. He knows how you are formed, He remembers that you are just dust. He is the LORD, and His love is with you from everlasting to everlasting – for those who fear Him. He righteousness will remain with your children’s children, for those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts. His throne is established in heaven, his kingdom rules over all. You are not fearing God for Nothing! Praying that you will praise Him for His love and His goodness, that you will remember all his benefits, because He said, Don’t forget!
Love you all,
