What I’ve Learned #12

What I say is worth nothing if God’s name is not in this post.

Let me explain what I mean…

Everything I have, everything I am, everything I know, everyone I love, all the good things that happen, all the bad things that happen, every single moment of my life is there because He placed it, or them there.

EVERY SINGLE THING.

If I don’t put Him into EVERYTHING in my life then my life is not complete.

He is EVERYTHING.

He means EVERYTHING.

If you don’t focus on Him, His Word, and the GOSPEL…if you don’t focus on the Gospel, that we were DEAD in our trespasses and sins that we were by NATURE children of wrath, and that God being RICH IN MERCY, because of the great LOVE with which He loved us made us ALIVE WITH CHRIST.

If you don’t focus on the fact that God wants to show us the IMMEASURABLE RICHES OF HIS GRACE IN KINDNESS TOWARD US IN JESUS CHRIST, and if we don’t take the time to realize what Paul means in Ephesians when he says that we have been saved by GRACE.

If you don’t focus on the fact that God has set into place good works for us, He has set these desires in our hearts, and that no matter where we go…whether it’s the Canary Islands, or Philadelphia, or Thailand He will be with us. We CANNOT get away from Him.

And that is why I go. That is why I serve.

And that is why what I say means nothing if His name is not in this post.

I owe everything to Him.
