“Although my memory’s fading, I remember two things very clearly: I am a great sinner and Christ is a great Saviour”. This is from the same guy who wrote “Amazing grace. How sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost but now I’m found. Was blind but now I see” – John Newton.

“For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God” 1 Peter 3:18 (http://bit.ly/2SKxz8Z). That is the steadfast and secure platform from which we, as followers of Jesus, launch our daily lives. So, seeing as you have that absolute assurance, “live a life worthy of the Lord” Colossians 1:10 (http://bit.ly/2SSrqb9).

Read Ephesians 2:8 –http://bit.ly/2vI16VP

The world can be very performance based, be it sports, academics or socially. Point is, we are always driven to perform. And there’s a thin line between who you really are and how you perform. We can easily base our identities on our performance.

This verse however shows us the power of God and salvation, and the miracle it truly is. God says, His love for you, is all He needs to save you because our performance will never be good enough.
How powerful it is to know that the grace of God carries us where our performance fails us.

Is there something you have seen or heard someone do (maybe you are that someone) and you thought to yourself, “oh my word, that person should never get away with that! I hope punishment rains down on them.”? Truth is we all deserve punishment to rain down on us. We were all born bad, sin made us bad.

BUT let’s read what Paul tells us in Ephesians 2:1-10 (http://bit.ly/2zIf7JB)

Instead of punishment and death raining down – undeserved mercy, kindness, love, grace (favour), salvation rained down. We went from bad to good. And not because of anything we could ever do, but because of EVERYTHING Jesus did.

Look into Psalm 145:8-9 (http://bit.ly/2ltEh4P)

Do you find it tough to be gracious and compassionate? Are you easily frustrated with friends and family? Do your teachers sometimes get to you, to a point where you are unable to act out the “slow to anger” characteristic? Do you find that it’s really hard to love people, just because?

Verse 8 says, “The LORD is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love.” Verse 9 says “He is good to all” – What a brilliant explanation of a major aspect of God’s character! Isn’t it good to know God is compassionate, gracious, is patient with us and loves no matter what!
