A dedication in humility

Leave a Comment
Thanks be to Jesus, who suffered death to redeem us from sin and the wrath of God, for giving up himself to be our credit of righteousness, undeserving as we are. In this we have our confidence, in this we have eternal hope. 

"Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men."

Thanks be to God who's grace is so obviously evident in every little particle of life, in mine, forever teaching me and showing me His character, in perfecting me. It is grace and God's grace alone that allows me to be more and more like His son.

Thanks be to God, who forgives us our sins, by the gift of His son. He teaches me to trust in the Gospel, reminding me in the life of a woman who forgave "Many times over...", that God has forgiven me so much, so that i too can forgive much. 

"He who grows in grace remembers that he is but dust, and he therefore does not expect his fellow Christians to be anything more. He overlooks ten thousand of their faults, because he knows his God overlooks twenty thousand in his own case. He does not expect perfection in the creature, and, therefore, he is not disappointed when he does not find it. When our virtues become more mature, we shall not be more tolerant of evil; but we shall be more tolerant of infirmity, more hopeful for the people of God, and certainly less arrogant in our criticisms."(CH Spurgeon)

For a beautiful woman;
whose children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her.
