All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is by his great mercy that we have been born again, because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now we live with great expectation1 Peter 1:5
New Beginnings, New Life
God‘s salvation comes from his mercy. He raised Jesus Christ from the dead so that he might give us life as well. We did not deserve his mercy or salvation, but yet he’s so freely gave it. In fact, it doesn’t cost us anything, but it cost him everything. Have you ever known someone to give without any expectation in return? Maybe they spent a lot of money to get you something really nice. The gift God gave when he sent his son to earth to die on the cross there’s more than anything we could ever imagine. It was not a decision that was taken lately. He purchased us with the blood of his son, the perfect sacrifice.
Have you made the decision to follow him today? Have you accepted his gift of salvation? Do you live as though you have been given something you could never repay? Take some time today to really thank him for the gift of his son and evaluate your life and if you are living as though you are thankful for that great gift.
A Prayer to Remember
Thank you for all of your salvation. Thank you for life mercy. I can never repay you. I know that your love goes beyond all of my wildest expectations. Amen.
