Ephesians 2:8 “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God”
Who am I? I’m someone who was saved by the grace of God, not for who I am or what I have done but because of who God is and what he is doing. Im blessed to come to you today humbly and tell you about my faith. Somedays I wonder why I have been chosen to be filled with the Holy Spirit and then I imagine how amazing our God is and realize how my life has been altered not by myself but by the abounding love God has for all of us. I use to walk the same path as a lot of people and that is seeking things to boost my own ego. I would search for anything that would make others think more of me. Today my goal could not be any more different then it was. Today I search for things that can give glory to God through my life because to me that is the ultimate goal. I was taken from the path of sin and death and placed on a path of love and life. Again it was not because of anything I had done but by the grace of God alone. God took someone like me who was the farthest from righteous and set my path straight, although somedays my body wants to veer of the path I am blessed with the Holy Spirit to keep the end goal in my mind. That goal is to bring glory to God in all of my daily activities. How amazing is our God to allow someone who deserves punishment for my sins to change me into a person that can be used to bring him glory. I use to laugh at people who would throw this term “Saved” around about their life. When most people imagine saved they think of something physical but now to me I see what those people mean by being Saved not physically but by the grace of God. Im walking proof of the word saved and to think that I had done nothing but allow Jesus to be the center of my life. Today I wanted you to know a LITTLE about me and ALOT about my savior Jesus. Today I want you to know that I walk in love and those footsteps walk over the place that used to hold hate. My old self would want to take credit for the person I am becoming, but that would be foolish. It is by the grace of our extraordinary God that I can use these fingers I was so blessed with to type this message that you too can be saved.
Unfortunately lately I hear a lot of unbelievers say there is no God, but to them I show them my self. If I was alone in this I would be to weak to change my ways but because of how amazing God is he took me and turned me around and set my sights on Jesus and for that I’m forever grateful. I plan on doing a daily devotional starting today and I thought no better way to start it out than by showing you how I did nothing to get to this point but how our Lord and savior did everything. Im truly amazed at the work of God all around us and in me and can’t help but spread the Good news to all my friends and people that I have not been blessed to meet yet. God bless all of you and I’m truly grateful that you use my blog to see the word of God through the eyes of a changed man.
1 Corinthians 1:5-9 “For in him you have been enriched in every way—with all kinds of speech and with all knowledge— God thus confirming our testimony about Christ among you. Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed. He will also keep you firm to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.”
