Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6 NIV
Christ longs for us to humble our hearts and receive Him. He wants us to know the goodness of God, remember we are valued and loved and never walk away from recognizing why we NEED mercy and GRACE.
Grace transforms our way of thinking. It nurtures the renewal of our hearts as we live to honor God. "Because of GRACE we live the kind of life He wants for His children." God nurtures our souls to do what is pleasing to Him.
Sometimes we have trouble releasing our control and need to rid ourselves from thinking it’s “all about us.” God’s will was fulfilled because of Jesus! HE is the WAY to the Father and the HOPE of our salvation. He was arrested and hung on a cross to die. The One without sin suffered to take our own. Nails couldn’t hold Him, because of His love for each one of us.
Reflecting on what Jesus has done should inspire us with deep appreciation. But sometimes we forget to offer Him prayers of praise. We forget that because of GRACE we are forgiven and God calls us worthy.
It’s never too late to draw closer to God. He is READY to guide us where we belong, so we will experience how it feels to be lifted, find PEACE as we journey with Christ and welcome willingness to do what it takes to honor Him with our lives.
God will help us grow when we leave doubt behind and walk toward the fullness of forever and JESUS will equip us to rise ready! He IS deserving of so much more than what we choose to give. He will help us examine our hearts and learn how-to walk-in truth. If we remain grounded in His God’s Word and TRUST in His promises, He will give us wisdom as He guides and provides.
We don’t have to handle life on our own or think we have it all together. Every step we take to walk closer to God will bring beautiful reward as we give Him the glory! God will always take care of us, even when we need to be reminded to let Him dwell where He belongs.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23 CSB God IS HERE and He loves us. The joy of the Lord is our strength.
Dear God, Thank you for Your presence. Thank you for what Jesus has done for each one of us. Help us reflect on the sacrifice of Your precious Son and humble our hearts for His. As we reflect on the cross, help us remember Your will was fulfilled when Jesus died and rose again. May we never be ashamed to admit when we’re weak and welcome the peace of surrender. Thank you for knowing our hearts. Thank you for helping us walk worthy. Amen
