Forgiveness and compassion
Love, faith and grace
My Lord, Jesus, so full of love
Gave His life for us on the cross
That through his broken body and blood
We would have everlasting life
A life of reconciliation with Himself
A life here on earth to demonstrate and proclaim
The good news of the cross and what it means in everyday life
But how do we demonstrate the good news?
Living by obedience…. Not only to the written word but to everything He says.
Maintaining a intimate relationship with God The Father
Through prayer, reflection and study of HIS WORD
We are all human and NOT perfect beings
So at times we falter and fall head long into a sin and bad habits
When we distance ourselves from The Sustainer of Life
Yet because HE is a loving, compassionate, and just God
He does not leave alone in these sins and bad habits
Though correction is painful it will reap a great harvest in the fruit of our lives
In John 15:1-2 it says, “I am the true vine, and My Father is the Gardener,
He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does
Bear fruit He prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.
So, be thankful that the Lord loves us enough to prune and discipline us
I have to say this to myself also especially when I falter and I will because we all
do, but I know that God is there and He will forgive me!
Praise the LORD for HIS Love, grace, forgiveness, and compassion.
Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me!”
