Thank You

Leviticus 19:1-2; Colossians 1:19-23

Not many verses today, but that's alright because there is plenty to think about and consider, especially in Colossians 1:21-22. "And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, he [Christ] has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him. . ." Separation, sin and hostility turn to reconciliation and us being able to stand holy and blameless because of Jesus' death. Thank you, Jesus.

How often do you truly reflect on what we're told in these two verses? If you're like me, probably not enough. So, I encourage you to take some time and do that today. Then, tell us what you discovered, and tell the Lord thank you. Tami W.

When I think of how I was....the horrible sinful things I used to do and the way I've acted in the past it gives me chills. How God could still love me and never turn his back on me shows His unfathomable love for us. That He sent his Son Jesus to suffer our punishment and die on the cross for our sins....while we are yet sinners! Wow, so humbling, so gracious. What an Awesome God. Not only to forgive our sins but to declare us righteous! Thank you Jesus!

How manys times in my christian walk have I read this verse? Too manys time! Never before did I see myself as an individual that had a mind set that was unfriendly, antagonistic, one that openly opposed God. This was my mind set before I meet my savior. I was in this condition and He still extended out His hand to me and accepted me as His child. Lord, Thank you! Thank you! Thank You! Lord, just thank you for having such a tender, forgiving heart.

Knowing that we are made righteous through Christ’s atonement for me took away a lot of anxiety when I accepted Christ as my savoir. I know that my salvation is not based on what I do, but is a gift. I still know of people that think that if they are good enough that they are going to get to heaven, but that is not what God’s word says. It is a gift from God and we just need to accept it. Then we do good because of Christ love that is in us not trying to prove ourselves worthy.

in this scripture i would like to pin point on vs 23 it has really spoken volumes fo me to do im facing a crisis were i feel forgoten by my father who is supposed to be supporting me financially as i embark on my uni studies it would be easy for me to stay discouraged and easily lose hope but this verse is encouraging me to remain steadfast and hopeful though i may not see a way but surely God has a way faith is teling the soul to go beyond what the eyes can see
