What responsibility do you think we have to those who do not know the knowledge of God?

“Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body. 1 Corinthians 6:18

I could focus on this verse alone…but I would be taking this out of context and using it to justify my beliefs. If you continue with the text Paul reminds those in Corinth that they have the Holy Spirit living in them and they ought to honor their bodies and not defile it with immoral acts.

I wanted to look up the definition of the root word for immorality “moral” and it repeats several times “the conduct of right and wrong”. I then hear my science professor in college say, when speaking of those who believe in Darwinism, “by what standards do they measure what is right and wrong?” Which added a twist to what I thought this post was going to be about.

Romans 1:18-32 Paul is discussing God’s Wrath against Mankind. He tells us how the people turned from worshiping God and began worshiping created things. in verse 24 Paul says: ‘Therefore, God gave them over in their sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. As you continue in the text he describes the homosexual acts that the men and women gave into. It says in verse 25 that ‘They exchanged the truth of God for a lie,’ Again in 26, it says ‘God gave them over to shameful lusts.’ and again verse 28 Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done.

This last verse leaves me with a question for those of us who do find it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God. What responsibility do you think we have to those who do not know the knowledge of God?

Are we not commanded to LOVE our neighbors as we love ourselves? Do we not strive to live a life Holy as our Father who is in Heaven? Do we not believe that we are being transformed to reflect the image of Christ? The One who knows above all “right and wrong” If you and I say ‘yes’ to these questions listed, then I wonder to what extent we will be held responsible for those placed in our sphere of influence that live these lives that are immoral, and yet we turn our backs or point our fingers at them. The song by Casting Crowns “Jesus Friend of Sinners” comes to mind when I think about this topic because it says: “Nobody knows what we’re for only what we’re against when we judge the wounded” And someone who lives a life deprived of Gods knowledge is pretty wounded if you ask me.

So what do we do? Well LOVE seems to be the main area that we all need to begin to focus on. But how do we do that? How can we change our thinking about those in same sex relationships, when we as Christ followers know this is not how it was intended? Well here is something that God placed in my heart and I have shared several times with others who have asked me what they should do because they have a friend who is in a same sex relationship. I then ask them if they have any Christian friends that are sexually active, and I ask them what they are doing in those relationships? This question is usually all that’s needed to remove the label of “homosexual sin” and allowed the “sexual sin” be revealed. Sin is sin. I have yet to find the passage where Jesus tells us that each sin is judged on a different scale. I am more than open to correction though.

When we as a Body of believers are able to realize that we are ALL sinners in need of a savior, and that Savior has given us His Spirit in order that we display His Love to all people, then I truly believe we will begin to see those who are unaware of the knowledge of God come to seek His ways. But until we are able to truly LOVE as He LOVES, I can’t blame them for not wanting to be apart of this Body. Who wants to be condemned by another person? Who wants to come to a group of people who themselves live in hypocrisy because we bash those who are far off from our view of what God says is good, and condone the not so bad sins that we as believers commit daily?

Friends, those who live by The New Testament as our new covenant we are told in Romans 15:1,2 “We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up.”  We have been given a new heart, a new Spirit, the same Spirit that lived within Our Savior. Perhaps it’s time we strengthen this Spirit by loving those who are weaker than us in Gods view of right and wrong. Perhaps this means we must first look within our hearts and ask God to reveal to us where He has left us to our own depraved thinking. Let us judge our own thoughts and actions, and then as His Spirit leads let us then reflect His image to those around us.

Personal struggle with defending myself….

DAN 3:16-18 NCV

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego answered the king, saying, “Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves to you. If you throw us into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to save us from the furnace. He will save us from your power, O king. But even if God does not save us, we want you, O king, to know this: We will not serve your gods or worship the gold statue you have set up.”

Such confidence these men had in God. It was this confidence that ultimately saved them. We see this repeatedly in the New Testament also. Many times we see those beautiful red letters say “Your Faith has healed you.” Faith meaning belief. I wonder how my Faith/Belief would withstand this type of persecution.

If I’m to be honest I’ve failed horribly these past few months at a different type of persecution. One that is created within my mind. One that although I continue to live each day and don’t have to worry about being thrown into an actual fire, my Spirit has been slowly dying while under this invisible fire within my mind.

I hear Gods voice in many different ways. Some of these ways are typical to many. Through His written Word. Through other believers or teachers. But then there are the other ways, through types of birds, signs, symbols, numbers, dates, coincidences, and even audibly etc…. the list can go on and on really. Sometimes I am so engulfed in the Spirit that every moment I can see His hands and hear His voice. It’s during those times when I would expect another believer to see Him as well, but they don’t or even worse they look at me as if I have 3 eyes.

But see this is where the fire within my mind begins. Because I have assumed they are looking at me with 3 eyes when I truly do not know if they are. That fiery dart has been thrown and I because of my past have allowed it to fester. And as the days go on anytime I am questioned, or someone makes a comment that may or may not deal with me directly, I allow that flame to be engulfed even more.

Recently my family has relocated to a different church, within the same town, and they both go off of the same biblical teachings, the New Testament. I have continued relationships with the people from my previous church, as well as having some of them at the new church I am at. Even more recently I have heard (which this is a HUGE problem for the fires we as women create in our minds….GOSSIP….VERY TOXIC), that those of us who have left this church are heretics. So you can imagine the fire within my mind now….if not let me just say we could roast marshmallows for days.

This morning after having a text conversation with a friend it was obvious that I had to diminish this flame, because it was causing bitterness within my heart and a lack of trust in people. And what better way than to publicly write about it. 😉 So I looked up the meaning of the word heretic, and it says that it’s a believer who doesn’t follow what their church follows. And I guess that would be correct. I guess I am a heretic, if the people at the church we left believes this because my family chose to follow what God said and not what the church says.

Want to know what is so heartbreaking to me? God tells us to LOVE HIM, and the LOVE others as we LOVE ourselves. I find it very hard to love others when these others throw so many stones at those who choose to worship God differently. I am a follower of Jesus Christ, and I belong to HIS Church. I will go where He says to go and if that makes me and my family heretics….then I pray for the courage as these three men, as well as Paul and live with a God confidence that I do not have to defend myself to them.

Where do I go from here? Well Jesus told His disciples that stopped others from casting out demons in His name “If they’re not against us they’re FOR us” So that’s what I’m going to continue to believe. These few bad apples do not ruin an entire tree of good apples. The church my family and I departed from is an amazing church, and I have witnessed amazing transformations because of the Spirit of God that resides within those walls. They have produced many, many, many, disciples of Christ, myself, my husband, and my daughter to name a few. They are my family and will always be. I will continue to pray for those who go there to see the LIGHT that is within everyone, and that Gods Holy Spirit convicts those who continue to gossip about others and cause internal flames to destroy so many.

Words hold power people. Choose your words carefully. Choose your judgments carefully, because we are judged by the measure which we judge. Whether we acknowledge it or not we do all judge others…choose to judge them by the standards displayed for us in Jesus Christ. He LOVED ALL. Came to SAVE the SICK. NOT condemn them. Let those of us who call Him Lord follow the example of these men of Judah and say to the Nebuchadnezzar’s in our lives (& minds) “we do not need to defend ourselves to you.”

You and I have ONE judge….and ONLY ONE! Let us PRAY for the Church that Jesus is building. That we be honorable men and women, and lead by His example.

A Piece of the Puzzle

You must live by the example you hope to teach others. And our example is in Christ Jesus. Paul said it best….follow me as i follow Christ.

multiply

Making disciples. That’s it… the goal of our Christian walk. Leading others to follow Christ is our ultimate purpose.

Right?

Some of you are probably familiar with the John Piper quote, “Missions exists because worship doesn’t.”  Our God is worthy of all people’s worship. So, out of love for God and love for people, we endeavor to lead those who aren’t currently worshiping God to do so. In other words, the purpose of making disciples is that people will worship God.

puzzle-pieceAnd this rings true in Scripture, doesn’t it?  From the Ten Commandments (Ex 20, Dt 5) to the Great Commandment (Mt 22:36-40, Mk 12:28-31), God is concerned with people worshiping and loving himself above anything he created. This means that we are to subject ourselves to his lordship, obeying his commands. “For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome” (1…

Well-meaning words that create limits on God

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. The Word became flesh made his home among us. John 1:1,2,14

The Word of God is obviously powerful, I mean it is saying here that Jesus Christ is in fact the “Word” that was and is with God in the beginning. And we know the power that Jesus has, so that means that The Words that we speak and think are also powerful. If indeed we have the Spirit of Christ living in us. When we speak and meditate on Gods Word we are giving our Spirit and those who hear Life. We are indeed being good and faithful servants of Our Father.

And when we evil we then are speaking Death into others, and ourselves. I’m not going to dive all the way into this but there is something I want to make very clear to anyone with ears to hear. James tells us in 3:9 “With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God’s likeness.” We all are guilty of this, and those with His Spirit are convicted and repent of this, hopefully.

But there is another way where the enemy of our souls has slipped in, and that is through prayer and well-meaning sayings. The most recent saying that just makes my mind want to explode every-time I read it on a pretty picture. This saying is :

We may never know the reason why things happen, but we still must trust”

The best lies are 99%true. People this word NEVER has just sealed the deal that you will in fact NEVER know the reason. NEVER is without wiggle room. God says with Him ALL things are possible, to those who BELIEVE. This well meaning partial truth is what we in fact believe. Jesus tells us if we ask God for ANYTHING in HIS NAME it will surely be given to us. I have personally been given a reason for everything bad that has happened to me. Some were tiny things that gave me a glimmer of peace, others were amazing. Some were instant the longest took almost 13 years to receive, but I did receive it. And so will you, if you claim it and stop speaking and believing that God isn’t capable, or loving enough to reveal part of Hid goodness to you in your grief.

 I am not claiming that God will give us the reason in it’s entirety, but He WILL give you enough to grant you peace, His Word says that ALL things He works for GOOD. Trust this and the countless of other promises that God gives us throughout the bible that give HOPE. We have to watch what we say. How we pray, and what we claim for our lives in Christ.

Believe He is a God that anything is possible. Don’t limit what Our Father will do in our lives.

To be continued…possibly.

“What lessons have you learned that needs to be maturely rewritten?”

“What lessons have you learned that needs to be maturely rewritten?”

This question was left at the end of a devotional. It’s a question that I hope to answer several more times over my lifetime. Today the lesson I want to rewrite is the lesson about my second marriage. Until 13 days ago I would’ve told you that my current marriage, which is the second for both my husband as well, was not Gods original plan for him and I. That our lives reflected the consequences of our sinful life before Christ. Today, I will say that this is partially true. Him and I have suffered from our choices made before and after committing our lives to Christ. But we are not Gods backup plan. We are the original plan created by God, and FOR God. Every moment of our lives has been planned from before we were ever born. God knew the day I’d be born, and the day I will die. This brings me such comfort when life seems to be falling apart around me. He is IN ALL.

God is not a God that makes mistakes. He is an all knowing, all powerful, and always present God. He created the Universe by the power within His Words. God created Adam out of the dirt of the Earth, and Jesus from His Spirit. Which of those two would you consider the original plan? Right, Jesus. He may be the second man, but He is NOT the second plan.

And neither are my husband and I. God has given me confidence in this which is why I am correcting my previous belief. Gods ways are higher than ours, and our human minds will never be able to comprehend His full design. We could go back and forth on different beliefs based on Scripture and personal experience. I’m not writing this to create a debate.

The reason I’m writing this is because God has opened my eyes to something I once saw differently. As I’m continually being transformed to reflect the image of Christ I realize how many people around me are secretly broken inside. Trying to live life as everyone else around them, but dying inside because no one else seems to have as many problems as them. I myself am one of those people…and for years I have suffered alone, ashamed, and condemned when I tried to reach out. That is NOT how Jesus treated those he came in contact with. Christ died so we ALL would be ONE with the Father and Him. He came for the broken sinner. Which is ALL of us. Not one single person walking this planet is without sin. Christ lived a life of obedience, humility and LOVE. Each of us is given a purpose to fulfill while we are here. I don’t want to claim to know all the answers, what I do know is what God has done within my life, and I will tell you without question that not one single moment in my life has been without God. He knew every ounce of pain and suffering I would experience and allowed it to happen. He had, and has a purpose for all of it. So I can be used to lead His children to His Son. In this season I believe He wants me to do that by being authentic about who I am and how He is and has been working within my life.

Unedited confession, turned testimony….

Matthew 9:27-31 JESUS HEALS THE BLIND…

As Jesus went from there, two blind men followed him, calling out, “Have mercy on us Son of David!” When he had gone indoors, the blind men came to him, and he asked them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” “Yes, Lord,” they replied. Then He touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith will it be done to you”; and their sight was restored. Jesus warned them sternly, “See that no one knows about this.” But they went out and spread the news about him all over that region.

Jesus healed them and then gave them a command. They disobeyed this command, AND Jesus did NOT take back from them the healing that He gave them. Tonight as my eyes happened to read these words, my mind was enlightened with this truth. God allowed me to notice something that I hadn’t seen before.

Why? I’m sure there are many reasons that I am unaware of at this moment. What I can tell you is this was for me, as well as for you. Maybe not all of you, but someone reading these words also needs to know that once Jesus heals us, once we call on His Name and believe deep within our hearts that He IS Our Lord and Savior, we are His. Our salvation is secure by the Blood that He freely poured out on the Cross. Nothing can take away what Christ has given.

See this is something I have struggled with, and even still as I write this my mind, spirit, and soul have not all agreed. The enemy of my soul wants to snatch this from me and keep me blinded by lies. But I know that my accuser has been hurled down by the Blood AND the testimony of my words. I know this because Revelations 12:10,11 tell me so. Friends this is my testimony of Gods amazing Grace. His patient heart towards those of us who doubt like Thomas. Not because we refuse to believe, but because of what we have seen, learned, and lived.

All my life I have messed things up. So many people have walked away when they promised they’d never leave. Many have seen me at my worst, and decided that it just wasn’t worth sticking around. I have been promised one thing, yet received another. So believing that God will NEVER forsake me, no matter bad I mess up….well it’s a very hard pill to swallow on most days. There are times when His Presence is strong and leading me, and this truth I can proclaim with every status update on Facebook and every email I send.

But then there are those moments when a friend has something I desired and my heart twinges with jealousy. Or my thoughts, words, or actions are led by the person I thought had died. But what’s hardest to deny is when my heart is filled with so much fear and guilt because I know the truth, and yet still fall for the traps set before me. It’s THIS guilt that condemns me because of what Hebrews 10:26 says “If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, (and again I am shown a truth that my heart was closed off to see, until just now. It isn’t here in verse 26, but it is within the same sentence.) 27) but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.”

Friends, I am not an enemy of God. This guilt that wreaked havoc within my mind and heart was lead by my desire to truly live a blameless and holy life. The deceiver that comes disguised as light has convinced me, and I’m sure others, that this guilt is truth and this text affirms that we are doomed. Only tonight the Spirit of Truth has revealed to me that I am NOT an enemy of GOD, and this anguish I feel when I have sinned against Him is a heart that is filled with sorrow, lead by the desire to please Him. Not one that is against God.

I am thankful that this has been revealed to and through me while writing. It is through His Blood AND our testimony that we have been set free from our accuser.

I pray that Gods Holy Spirit reveal His truth for YOU within this blog, confession, turned testimony. May we strive to live authentically whether online or face to face. Life in Christ is HARD…and impossible without His power leading. We NEED truth…even the truth that leaves us open for ridicule. May our lives not be loved so much that we fear what others might say when God has blessed us in some way.

Mission impossible

“I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep, and my sheep know me.” – Jesus (John 10:14)

finalcall07

If you decide to follow Jesus then He takes you on a road that is utterly impossible. In the first place you do the “impossible,” you stop sinning. You go against your own will, against your own desires and you obey Jesus Christ.

People say it is impossible to stop sinning. With Jesus all things are possible. If you stay with Jesus then the road is impossible, it is difficult, you cannot see where you are going but you can only see Him who is guiding you, the One, whom you are following, Jesus Christ. “The righteous will live by faith and if he withdraws My soul will have no pleasure in Him.” To follow Jesus is to walk by faith, to trust Him in absolutely everything. The road will be impossible but because Jesus goes ahead of you, you arrive on the other side. You get to know Jesus…

God teaches me through my children

I love the way God teaches me through my children.

Tristan and I are going through a plan on www.YouVersion.com titled “The Book of Daniel with kids” it is 22 days long and we are on day 3. Today I yet again had to read through Daniel 1, and to be honest I complained. (Philippians 2:14 do everything without complaining… oops) I’m ready to get into the meat of this book and wanted to move on. Remember the title…My God showed me that I had been missing the meat He had for Tristan and I in chapter 1. The exact “meat” that God had been revealing at a deeper level in my husband and I for the last few weeks. That GOD is in ALL things…GOOD AND BAD.

Tristan and I read the International Children’s Bible (ICB), which I personally recommend for all children (even some adults). (The link above however is the closest they have online which is NCV) Here are a few of the key verses that helped me explain to him, and remind myself, about Gods Sovereignty.

  1. 1:2 – The Lord allowed Nebuchadnezzar to capture Jehoiakim king of Judah.
  2. 1:9 – God made Ashpenaz want to be kind and merciful to Daniel.
  3. 1:12,13- “Daniel said to the guard, “Please give us this test for ten days: Don’t give us anything but vegetables to eat and water to drink. Then after the ten days compare us with the other young men who eat the king’s food. See for yourself who looks healthier. Then you judge for yourself how you want to treat us your servants.”
  4. 1:17 – (a)God gave these four men wisdom and the ability to learn. They learned many kind of things people had written and studied. (b)Daniel could also understand all kinds of visions and dreams.

In these first two verse we see God working. God allowed the king to be captured, and I can imagine that the men of Nebuchadnezzar weren’t too gentle when they were capturing him. Yet, what I want to point out is that GOD ALLOWED it to happen. In Romans 8:28 we are told that God works ALL things for GOOD, for those who love God and are called to His purpose. We are ALL called to live out Gods purpose, but not all love God. I mention this because I want anyone who is reading this to understand that there is an expectation that we are all called to when we ask Jesus Christ to be our Lord. The Holy Spirit will strengthen you as you walk in obedience to Gods call on your life, and you will WANT to live out this expectation with a desire that you’ve never had for anything else in your life. (If you’re not experiencing this, then it is possible you have not truly accepted Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior. Pray about this and reach out to someone who can guide you into this relationship.)

Back on topic, the second verse God gave me a beautiful analogy to give to Tristan to see if He understood where we are. Imagine some one’s heart is dark, yet in the center of it there is a small Light. This small Light is placed there by God. Now imagine the heart of Gods children, it is filled with Light. When we are filled with a room filled with those who have dark hearts, what will happen to the one heart that has a small Light when we live the way God tells us to? Blessed his heart (& mine) he knew the answer. “That Light will grow” All throughout the Old and New Testament we are told that we will have trouble in this life. But in john 16:33 we are given a promise, Jesus has already overcome this world. The end of our life here is already written and given to us. Jesus is the Light of this World, and His Spirit now lives IN US. Therefore, WE are the LIGHT of THIS world. We are to SHINE HIS LIGHT, especially in the darkest of situations. We never know who God has placed a small seed of Light in, just waiting for one of His Children to Be the LIGHT that they were freely given.

The third verse shows us this Light that Daniel displayed. He knew that He was the mouth piece for himself, and these 3 other men of God. He also knew that they were to be trained for 3 years. He respectively asked to be tested for 10 of the 1095 days and if they were not pleased then the 4 men would do as they asked. Daniel knew that God was with them, and His way was best. By doing this Daniel honored God and saved the 3 men as well as the guard and chief officer Ashpenaz.

The last verse has two parts. Because of Daniel’s obedience to Gods ways all four men were given wisdom and the ability to learn the things needed in order to ultimately fulfill Gods purpose for the men of Judah to be captured. In 1:20b it says that Nebuchadnezzar found that these men were 10x’s better than all the fortune-tellers and magicians in his kingdom. These 4 men stood out above all the rest because they had Gods blessings. But it was Daniel who had an extra amount of anointing. He was also able to understand all kinds of dreams and visions. Daniel’s life up to this point is very similar to the life of Joseph. Both men were held in captivity, both men honored God in their actions and both men were given gifts that would advance them in the eyes of their captors.

I want to end this by going back to the men of Judah that were captured. It doesn’t say here in Chapter one how many of these men were captured, but as I turn to Numbers 2:3 it tells me that there were 74,600 in the camp of Judah. Different time, but I’m using this as a reference point. That’s a lot of men, and only 4 of them were chosen to Shine Gods Light in the lives of their enemies.

Friends, the odds may be stacked against you according the standard of the our enemy, the world. BUT….the LIGHT that is IN YOU was placed there so that YOU would influence those around you, whom God placed there. Jesus came so that ALL would be saved, so whether that person seems good or bad, the seed of Light is in them….waiting for someone to Shine so that their Light will grow. God will place us each in situations that will challenge and sometimes terrify us. But I pray that you stand firm in Truth. That the spirit of fear is not from God, therefore has no true power over you or I. Fear is a LIE, the belief of this lie is how this fear was created. We break this lie with TRUTH. Know your fears, and then seek out the TRUTH so break this fear.

 

The World needs to see YOUR LIGHT. God has called you and I to be the Light of the World. This is why Jesus died for us, so that each of us would gain access to the Father….we are called to Shine in the dark. Know that NOTHING happens in this world that God is not aware of. He does not create nor need to use the bad in order to advance His plan. He will however allow it, which means He has already planned the GOOD to come out of it. (see Jeremiah 29:11, Romans 8:28, Genesis 50:20) Jesus is the Anchor of our souls.

Oh, one last thing…spend time with children…let God teach you through them. They understand more than we think.

~sometimes I just gotta write~

Open for discussion….predestination….

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to His purpose. For those God foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of His Son, the he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those He predestines, He also called; those He called; He also justified; those He justified, He also glorified.” – Romans 8:28-30

Predestined – To Destine in advance; foreordain; predetermine

Foreknew- To know BEFOREHAND

Justified – To show satisfactory reason or EXCUSE for something done. To qualify as bail or surety

Before we were ever born God already knew what our entire lives would entail. NOTHING happens that God is not aware of. There are NO Plan B’s with God. He is NOT a God of disorder, or a God that lies. We are already told about the end of this world. So if God is a God of ORDER and HE has already given us in print what the END will be like….WHY do we believe one moment under His Sun is unaccounted for?

If you are a Child of God then seek diligently to hear His voice. What I have come to know is that God speaks to each of us differently. He is a personal God, He knows things that stick out to us and hold meaning. For instance Numbers, Dates, Music & Birds are additional ways that God speaks to me. He uses His Word, or the Prophetic Word of another. He has spoken to me audibly, as well as instilling information supernaturally in my mind. He has also spoken to me through dreams and visions.

So when Jesus said “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me” (John 10:14) I believe He is explaining that He knows how to speak to us in a way that we will know it is Him. If we truly believe He speaks to us.

Going back to those justified. This is such a hard topic to write on, especially after the recent events in Boston. This blog was started on April 6th after hearing about Rick Warren’s sons suicide. God had me in deep thought about Judas Iscariot and the role that he played in the redemption of mankind. I do believe that he was predestined to betray Jesus. I believe this because God knows ALL. There are NO Plan B’s to Gods story of redemption. He created Adam from the dust, yet Jesus was created from Spirit. Which of those two men sound like plan A? It may have been the second man, but not the second plan.

What does this mean? I’m not completely sure just yet. God hasn’t given me all the details as to why this is so important that I post it. All I know as of today is that my life has been written and every hair on my head is accounted for. Gods Written Word says this, and He also has given me revelation to affirm this. But I will admit this, even with the facts I previously listed, every day I still doubt. That’s why He also tells me and YOU that HIS GRACE is SUFFIECIENT!

Please feel free to discuss your thoughts on this topic…it’s a fresh one that I’m trusting God will blossom into something beautiful.
