Grace

James 1:27

James 1:27

Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.

After Thought

There is too much huff and puff and spit and spray spoken by many Christians. Real faith is an action based upon truth.

Acts 8:29

Then the Spirit said to Philip, 'Go up and join this chariot.

After Thought

Just as Philip brought good news to the Ethiopian in the chariot, our pets are a constant message of good news of God's love and encouragement to us.

Isaiah 26:7

Isaiah 26:7

But for those who are righteous, the way is not steep and rough. You are a God who does what is right, and you smooth out the path ahead of them.

After Thought

The Bible reminds us that God goes before us to soften rough places and makes a way for us in the wilderness.

2 Corinthians 1:5

2 Corinthians 1:5

For just as the sufferings of Christ are ours in abundance, so also our comfort is abundant through Christ.

After Thought

Paul described God as "the God of all comfort" because he was fully aware of His presence in difficult times. He walks us through the valley of the shadow of death and doesn't leave us there. Where there is a shadow there is light as well.

1 Timothy 1:15

1 Timothy 1:15

Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners -- of whom I am the worst.

After Thought

Many of us by our own volition have made a mess of our lives. God by His grace can make a miracle out of our mess. Paul knew this well because he went from persecuting the cause of Christ to preaching for the cause of Christ.

Jeremiah 31:19

Jeremiah 31:19

After I strayed, I repented; I kicked myself for my stupidity! I was ashamed and humiliated because I bore the disgrace of my youth.

After Thought

Grace is a wonderful blessing. Grace costs the giver everything and costs the receiver nothing. That is what Christ has done by giving us His grace.
