All About GOD - Growing Relationships with Jesus and Others

One day while talking with a friend of mine ,we were talking about new cars and I happenned to look over at a friends car and asked my friend why he doesnt have a new car, he said to me "because he knows he doesn't dsereve it." Wow , that hit me like a ton of bricks. I thought back to my day of salvation with the lord ,and thought . I know I don't deserve Gods grace enough to even ask for His salvation of His son. We all fall short of Gods grace. But there lies the fact, that the very essence of who God is , is His grace and mercy upon us all. He didn't have to save us ,God knows we don't deserve it. But through His awe inspiring power. He sent a lamb to bear our sins. Have you ever wondered "do I deserve it". It's a soul searching way to expierence His Love in a whole new way. Just to know that He gave us life,just to give it and not asking anything in return is almost uncomprehensive. "These chains are gone, I've been set free, My God ,My Savior Has ransomed me, and like a flood His mercy rains, unending Love, Amazing Grace." That lyric rings all to loud in my soul. Will we ever know the wonder of it all? Ask your self this "do you dererve it" Keep on keeping it real.
In Christ.

Dear Joe:

What an amazing thought and how true - GOD'S AMAZING GRACE. The song lyrics you posted I love also. I have been a Christian a long time, but growing in GRACE has been another thing all together. Ephesians 2:8-9 tells us that it is by grace we have been saved through faith, not of ourselves, but the gift of God, not as a result of works that no one should boast. 2007 was an extremely difficult year for me as God was doing some great pruning. I had battled with depression a good portion of my life. There were mindsets and one of them had to do with accepting his GRACE, a free gift and his MERCY (MERCIES) which are NEW every morning. As I have moved into this, it is amazing the FREEDOM I have experienced. All Glory and PRAISE goes to our SAVIOR.

As a father of 3 I could never withhold from them any thing that they needed if I could meet that need. I also want to give them more than they need. It is the natural response of a father who loves his children. Now how would I feel if every time they came to me for help they would feel unworthy of my help maybe because they blew at some point? Jesus showed us God as Father. Our Moslem friends are baffled by the thought of God as father. I remember one seen in the Passion of the Christ that touched me was when Jesus was in the garden in prayer crying out to Abba our word for dad. I am glad God allowed me to be a father because I can get a glimpse of Gods love for us

Hi Joe-Gil.
I know I certainly did not deseve to be brought into a relaionship with Jesus. I was working and living it up in a small town on the South Eastern coast of South africa. Those who knew me would not believe that I had become a Christian, who would be found standing on Street corners and preach the gospel. Watch as I Undertook Hospital visitation and go to Church and Bible studies. The talk was: "Tell us of anyone else, but it can't be Ron Payne, they must be mixing him up with someone else.
I am not proud of that life but this only goes to prove that despite the things I had done, God was not only prepared to forgive me, but also to call me His friend and His son. As important as this is, He has also seen fit to to take up residence within me and listen to every thought I have, where in the solitude of my mind discuss those thoughts with me.
At 75 I look forward to meeting him in a short while unless He still has other plans for me here. I get a special thrill out of addressing Him by His Hebrew name "Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in prayer and at the close of day saying: "Thank you Father for your constant presence in my life."
Thank you Joe-Gil for giving me this opportunity to express the love and willingness with which God wants to share with us, when we invite Him in to sup with us throughout the day on a one to one relationship. Strive for this Joe-Gil and all the Bright spots this world boasts of, will fade into a very dim shadow in comparison. The Lord Bless you and your own family Joe-Gil.
Your Brother and Friend in Christ - Ron

I know for sure I don't deserve His Mercy! This has sometimes been a stumbling block in my prayer life. How dare I ask for anything more than salvation? But as I sometimes delight in giving good gifts to my children, I know that my heavenly Father also finds pleasure in granting blessings into my life. His love is a wondrous and mind-boggling thing. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
