FROM MY HEART
By Mildred Mills
OUR GOD FORGIVES
What a Wonderful and Mighty God we serve. He not only made it possible for us to be saved, He also promises to keep us after we are saved. When we become His child by trusting in the Death, Burial, and Resurrection of Christ, His Mercies do not stop there. He provided Grace and Mercy that will follow us all the days of our lives. He knew we would fall short in our Christian walk and we would need daily cleansing. We, as Christians not only do things that are displeasing to God. But we also fail to do the things we should, and this is also sin. Omission or commission, whatever the case may be, we need daily cleansing. I am so very thankful He promised to save us, keep us, forgive us, and to love us no matter what. I have always said if God saved me and said to me, “now you are on your own,” I would be in trouble, (and so would you). How many times we fail and Satan says to us, “you failed, so just give up, and sell out to me.” When this happens, God speaks to us through so many verses in His Word. “For Thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in Mercy unto all them that call upon Thee.”(Psa. 86:5). God tells us, “If we confess our sins, He is Faithful and Just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1Jn. 1:9). So, child of God, when things happen in your life that are not pleasing to Him, ask for His forgiveness and remember He is Merciful and full of Grace.
God asks that we do our best,
But He accepts us when we fail.
For no matter what we do,
His Love and Truth prevail.
God is a forgiving God!
ARE YOU SAVED FROM THE PENALTY AND POWER OF SIN? IF NOT, THEN, WHY NOT?
If you are not saved, it is not because there is not a need for you to be saved. “All have sinned and come short of the Glory of God.”(Ro. 3:23.)
If you are not saved it is not because there is no way for you to be saved. Jesus said, “Him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.”(Jn. 6:37).
If you are not saved it is not because you do not have time to get saved. “TODAY if you will hear His voice harden not your heart.” (Heb. 3:15).
Christ is there, wherever you are, in the Person of the Holy Spirit. He will, at your invitation, come into your life, and make life worth living. Trust Him today, while you have today. The Bible says, “Ask, and ye shall receive.” Ask Christ to save you just now. He will hear the cry of the repentant heart.
Begin TODAY, to live FOREVER!!
