Thinking about God’s Graciousness

January 23, 2012 3 comments

As I sit here and think about what I have in Christ, I rejoice. God has forgiven my sins, clothed me with Christ righteousness, and seated me in the heavens in Christ. I was a beggar, a poor wretch, who needed saving. Why did the God of all grace reach down and decide to save this wretch? I do not mean to exalt my wretchedness above God’s grace. O but no that is not my intent. Yet I can look over my life and see that I was not worthy for the God of all grace to save.

Nevertheless this is what glorifies God. This is what exalts him as the Supreme Being of this universe. He is the only one who can take a filthy vessel and make it white as snow. He is the only and true Potter that can make a broken vessel over again. If it were not for his great mercy, where would I be? Better yet, if it were not for his great mercy, where would any of us be? All that have received his grace knows the answer to this. Hell would be our abode for eternity.

Therefore I want too say with the Psalmist this morning,

“So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.” Psalms 90:12

 To many times we get caught up with the things of this life and forget that we need to seek God. We forget the great gifts he has given us and forget to be thankful and to apply our hearts to wisdom. Therefore let us apply our hearts to wisdom, so that we may have an abundant entrance into God’s presence.

This is my hearts desire as I go into this New Year with my upgraded means of communicating the Gospel. I pray that it is your desire as well.

God bless,
