What I read today
1 Chronicles 21-23; Proverbs 24; Daniel 3; Luke 13; Ephesians 2
What an awesome God we have. In spite of all the times we fail and fall down he is there to pick us up. He knows that we can’t make it on our own and those who try always end up failing.
That’s why Paul tells us in Ephesians 2 vs. 4-10:
But God, who is rich in mercy, out of the great love with which he loved us even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God— not the result of works, so that no one may boast.
For we are what he has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life.
