Lent, pt. 28

Yesterday…was April Fools’ Day. I will not be the fool!

But He gives more grace…

Grace. Such a great thing. Amazing, actually.

Over my years, I have experienced three types of grace.

The first grace is, what I call, stopping grace.

God loves us so much that He does not want anyone going to hell. See II Peter 3:9

His grace stops people from being condemned to eternal separation. He is ├╝ber patient.

Just waking up and breathing each morning is witness of this grace.

Whether you read this tonight or in the morning, thank God for His grace.

Without it, we would all be gone.

Sorry if this seems somewhat bleak. No worries, it gets better.

Tomorrow, I will tell you about His saving grace. How sweet it is!

Lent, pt. 27

Happy April Fools’ Day!

To this day, I still don’t know why it is named April Fools’ Day. Probably never will.

Fools’ Day.

Are you a fool? Am I?

Psalm 14:1 says, “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.'”

fool

I don’t know about you but I never want that to be a description of my life.

I think there is a God. This same God loves me. Loves me in such a way that I am compelled to live for Him.

I know I can’t earn this affection from Him. I just need to accept it.

Take stock of your life right now. Let His love fill your heart. He wants to be near you.

Will you be foolish and ignore Him?

I hope not. If you have been turning your back on God, no worries. He gives more grace.

But more about that tomorrow.
