“In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.”
According to the riches of His grace.
According to the RICHES OF HIS GRACE.
ACCORDING TO THE RICHES OF HIS GRACE.
You won’t ever earn salvation, you won’t ever earn forgiveness, the whole point is that God has the glory. It’s not because of anything we do that ‘earns’ God’s love, because God made you before you even had the opportunity to earn His love! It’s like you planning to have a child because you want to raise and love another human being, and then that child grows up striving to earn a love it already has, not by their choice, but by the choice of the parent.
Stop trying to earn what is already yours, God is a giver, and He wants you to have his heart and his love. That’s who He is. Jesus: He gave his life, so that he could have yours.
Just for one day, just for ONE day, write it on your wrist: “JESUS LOVES ME” and be reminded of truth. Just take it a day at a time, I know the future seems impossible, but no one ever jumped to the top of a mountain; they did it each step by step.
According to the riches of His grace: just for one day, accept Him.
And then, do it again tomorrow.
