Today Reminder - 02 March 2012 (For Sale)

My prayer for you for today is that you will be renewed in Jesus knowing that you are God’s masterpiece, in Jesus name.

Ephesians 2:8-10
God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can't take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

For sale. I love sales people, they will give you all the best reasons why you need to buy this specific thing and they will make it sound so impressive that you can’t believe how you ever survived in today’s world without it. I used to work in sales and I must admit I loved it. Selling to fulfil a need is an awesome reward. To bring freedom to your client who has always been struggling with second rated products is just amazing. I loved the thrill of closing the deal and the rush of last minute calls to make target. When you sell truth and integrity you will always be successful, but there are those that will promise anything just to get the deal and then after you bought the promise you realise the actual product is not as good as what they made it sound and you are initially filled with anger and then comes regret and sometimes you are stuck with what you bought. This can be an on-going struggle as you keep trying to make something work that just can’t. It is so frustrating. How do you know it is a lie? I guess you can’t, because you can’t see what you don’t know, but God does. He knows everything, so trust Him in your decisions, always. 

I believe that satan is a great sales person, he must be. Would you jump into a pool of fire and allow yourself to be slow cooked for the rest of your life? No, you wouldn’t but still you carry on doing the wrong things and allowing old satan to mislead you. This is what makes salvation such an awesome thing, it is freely given by God. There is no sales gimmick, nor are there huge empty promises that a sales guru makes to get you to take it. You can’t earn it and you can’t buy it, you can only receive it. So you can’t buy your ticket to heaven, God already gave it to you. 

My dear friend, you are God’s masterpiece. You are special and you are so needed in His great plan. Give your life to Jesus and accept Him as your saviour and submit to a life lived for Him. You are way too special to be lost. I pray that your heart will belong to God and that your life will reflect His glory.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
