Today Reminder - 15 May 2012 (Good deeds)

My prayer for you for today is that you will be reminded today of God’s mercy in your life and that you will journey knowing that you are saved because of His great mercy, in Jesus name

Titus 3:3-7
Once we, too, were foolish and disobedient. We were misled and became slaves to many lusts and pleasures. Our lives were full of evil and envy, and we hated each other. But—"When God our Saviour revealed His kindness and love, He saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit. He generously poured out the Spirit upon us through Jesus Christ our Saviour. Because of His grace He declared us righteous and gave us confidence that we will inherit eternal life."

Good deeds - He saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy. I love this scripture! Paul writes that we were once all foolish and disobedient. In our lives we travel or as I like to say, journey through different stages. The enemy knows our weaknesses so well and lays waiting for us at every corner to steer us of our course. We so often slip into this trap and we are misled and became slaves to many lusts and pleasures. So many times we are ashamed and instead of accepting God’s mercy trough Jesus Christ we try and fix it by doing good deeds. This in its own right is one of the enemy’s great deceptions making us think we can win God’s favour by the things we do. It is actually so simple: When God our Saviour revealed His kindness and love, He saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit.

My dear friend, do not let the enemy steal your salvation with guilt and accusations. God saved you and will save you out of His great mercy. You must accept Jesus into your life as your saviour and follow His ways living your life for His glory and by His word. It is only in our love for Jesus and our true acceptance of Him as our saviour that we will be free from the grip that the enemy can have on us. Seek His light and guidance through your everyday living and remember He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit. He generously poured out the Spirit upon us through Jesus Christ our Saviour. Because of His grace He declared us righteous and gave us confidence that we will inherit eternal life.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.

Cheers
