While we were still helpless [powerless to provide for our salvation], at the right time Christ died [as a substitute] for the ungodly. Romans 5:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
When first baptized by the Holy Spirit I was so overwhelmed with gratitude that there was repeated attempts at attempts to serve Christ to prove worthy of His gift. Yes some of them succeeded but there was a feeling that something was left out. That something was slowly revealed to me by The Holy Spirit that it does not matter how much service committed unto Christ it is not good enough.
It is a gift given and we are to appreciate the gift.
Try living by the Ten Commandments for a day and see how far you fall short of living the life prescribed by Jehovah of the ancient Israelite’s.
“If any man ascribes anything of salvation, even the very least thing, to the free will of man, he knows nothing of grace, and he has not learned Jesus Christ rightly” Martin Luther
So, if you are attempting to make yourselves worthy of Christs sacrifice by service before warned. It is meaningless to Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Now, once you have become a servant of Christ He will have specific work work you to do in His kingdom. That is done out of love and respect for our Heavenly King, not out of obligation for the sacrifice made.
Prayer: Thank you Jesus M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for the horrible, agonizing sacrifice You paid on the cross to sanctify me in our Heavenly Fathers presence. I praise You in Your most awesome name. Amen
Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing
