Your Weekly Encouragement from Point of Grace
Today it's my turn to encourage you. Well this is what has encouraged me this week. Most of you know this scripture, but read through about 3 times in a a row. Let God's truth and love pour over you. When you are discouraged that you've messed up. Whether it's a relationship with a friend, or as a parent, or as a co-worker. Remind yourself that even in our failures, GOD LOVES US SO MUCH. Yes, we have failed. Yes, he knew that and still made a way:) Thank you Jesus!!!! So go out and "LIVE" the way he has prepared you to live. You might even want to take a listen to "THE GREAT DIVIDE" if you get a chance.
GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)
God Saved Us Because of His Great Love for Us
1You were once dead because of your failures and sins. 2You followed the ways of this present world and its spiritual ruler. This ruler continues to work in people who refuse to obey God. 3All of us once lived among these people, and followed the desires of our corrupt nature. We did what our corrupt desires and thoughts wanted us to do. So, because of our nature, we deserved God’s anger just like everyone else. 4But God is rich in mercy because of his great love for us. 5We were dead because of our failures, but he made us alive together with Christ. (It is God’s kindness[a] that saved you.)6God has brought us back to life together with Christ Jesus and has given us a position in heaven with him. 7He did this through Christ Jesus out of his generosity to us in order to show his extremely rich kindness in the world to come. 8God saved you through faith as an act of kindness. You had nothing to do with it. Being saved is a gift from God. 9It’s not the result of anything you’ve done, so no one can brag about it. 10God has made us what we are. He has created us in Christ Jesus to live lives filled with good works that he has prepared for us to do.
Be blessed today:)
