Today Reminder – 07 October 2014 (Day 5 – Faith)

A reminder for today

God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can't take credit for this; it is a gift from God. (Ephesians 2:8)

It is by our faith that we will be saved. You see nobody is perfect and nobody can be perfect no matter what those superstars think. In the end we will have to stand before God and be judged by the life we lived. As the Scriptures say, "No one is righteous—not even one.” And in 1 John 1 we are also reminded about our imperfections:  If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth. But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. If we claim we have not sinned, we are calling God a liar and showing that his word has no place in our hearts. 

We may be imperfect, but Jesus in us makes us perfect for God. Perfectly designed by a loving Father – Believe this my friend, for the mistakes you make on a daily basis are forgiven daily by a loving and understanding Father. To live in His light is surely no easy task, but to allow Him to give us guidance and make us stronger will surely make us better. Do not let the world confuse you with its misguided insults and poor example, instead let Jesus be the map that you follow and the way you walk. It is not the mistakes that we make that defines us but the way we stand up and try again. You are already saved, my friend, and it is not because you are so cool, it is because you are so loved. 

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus
