What to say about a subject that is woven through God's Word from Genesis to Revelation? What to say that hasn't already been said? I want to be original and I want my "outstanding post" to be read by many. I want to help others understand how great God is and what He did to make me His friend...these thoughts and many others have kept me from writing this post until tonight.
Those thoughts and motives are full of 'Jody' and not Jesus.
My intentions and ideas have not sprung from a heart and mind spent in prayer regarding this subject, but of trying to come up with a catchy title and a post to match. But isn't that what Jesus came to do? Show me my sin and pride, nail it to the cross where he died?
The death, burial and resurrection of my Savior now enables me to come boldly into God's presence through his shed blood.(Hebrews 10:19), confessing my sins to a loving God who calls me his daughter, because of Jesus' blood and his righteousness.
I was dead in my sins..."BUT GOD
who is abundant in mercy because of His great love for me, made me alive with Jesus even when I was dead in my sins, I am saved by grace through faith, it is God's gift and I am forever His"
I don't need to elaborate more on the subject. It's in the Bible, Old Testament and New. Read it for yourself, it will change your life forever.
