Oh, My Love!
Lord, I was starting - again - to doubt my salvation this afternoon, when I somehow knew that You wanted me to read in Galatians. And what I read has freed me more than words can tell.
Here's the most freeing verse that I read (in my opinion):
"I do not set aside the Grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing."
Also, Ephesians 2:8-9
"For it is by Grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the Gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast."
Lord, this is what it means to be fed by the Word. This is what you mean! My Savior, My King, My LOVE...how did I ever slip into the trap of believing I must EARN salvation? How was I so foolish? Lord, Your Grace is a GIFT - and naught but!
I am rediscovering You.
I have returned to the Love that has always been pursuing me. How was I so blind?
