Yesterday was the 1 year anniversary of my moms death and the 16 year anniversary of my dad’s death… they both died on March 29th. My mom wrote a poem shortly after my dad’s death. What was so amazing about this poem written in memory of my dad… was the complete transformation God did upon his life.
My dad was a walking dead man in his sin (Ephesians 2:1-4) and now full of cancer… Christ humbled him and transformed his life. Grace and mercy altered my dad’s life (Ephesians 2:4)… and now he and my mom are at the feet of their savior. God’s grace changes lives … Is your life changed?
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. 2 Corinthians 5:17
Do you call yourself a Christian? What are you basing it on… A decision you made 20 years ago or a past prayer you prayed… the bible never speaks from the past, always now!
Do you hate your sin and are you confessing that sin? Do you love your Lord and Savior ? Do you desire the things of God? Do you desire His word? Do you desire people to get saved? Do you pray? Do you fellowship with the people of God? Not because you have to… you have a burning desire to do those things… you have been transformed from death to life.
Test your faith… examine it Paul said Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you—unless indeed you fail the test? 2 Corinthians 13:5
If your not a Christian… fall on your knees and repent… ask God to save you by grace through faith in His Son.
He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. 2 Corinthians 5:21
Grace and peace to you
