However, I ran across a list today that surpasses the list I have written in my journal. This list is found in Ephesians 1:3-14 and it is what God has done for me! So, I want to share it with you because it is pretty amazing!
So, I am thankful because God has:
- Blessed me with every spiritual blessing.
- Chosen me.
- Predistined and adopted me.
- REDEEMED me.
- FORGIVEN me.
- LAVISHED His GRACE on me.
- Made known the mystery of His will.
- Provided and eternal inheritance.
- Sealed me in Christ.
- Guaranteed my inheritance.
When we die, we have a destination. Heaven or Hell. It's true. But God doesn't condemn...see John 3:17 - For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
It also says in 2 Peter that "...God is patient with [us], not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance."
When we respond to Christ's invitation to be HIS, we are richly blessed. (See the list from Ephesians.)
My heart is overwhelmed by His goodness this morning. I had to share this with you!!
