How beautiful is it to know about His Grace and sanctification?
Grace. We're saved. We're always going to belong to Him now. He protects us and teaches us. He loves us but also tells us what we're doing wrong.
Sanctification. We mess up. You and I sin many times a day. It's going to be like that until we go home to be with Jesus. We can try [and only succed with the help of the Holy Spirit] to do better [repent] and not sin as much. No matter what though we will still sin.
The good news is when we sin we can ask for forgiveness. That's where Grace comes in. We mess up but He helps us to repent and try not to do it again. If we do it again,ask for forgiveness,His Grace covers that yet again. The Holy Spirit helps us to know what we are doing, if it's wrong. And only by Him can we truely repent and turn from sin. Trust me, I've foolishly tried to repent on my own. Doesn't work. I've done it many times. I'm forgiven though, by the blood of Jesus. Howalluya!
The Holy Spirit helps us to repent and do better. And He continues to help us until we get it right and not comitt that sin. Will we still sin? Yep. That's where Grace comes in though.
Grace and sanctification. Both remind me of a parent and child. And it's time to learn how to teach the baby/toddler how to walk. Grace is that the parent will never leave the little kid despite how many times he or she falls. Sanctification is that our Heavenly Father picks us up no matter how many times we sin, gives us a kiss, and forgives us. Than, with the Holy Spirit's help, we try to get better at walking.
Actually, it is just like a child and parent. For each of us our in a walk with Christ. We fall down everyday, but He picks us up every single time.
I just had to put this. :0) The Holy Spirit has been doing so much in my life lately. It's too hard to explain but it's like I could burst with joy right now! So, I'm just expressing that gratitude by what I put, by what I see what He's doing in my life. Howalluya!
