In yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, grace was discussed.
Not grace, as people would say before beginning to eat their meal. But rather, the grace of God.
God's grace that provided a way of salvation for all who will believe, so that we can spend eternity in Heaven with Him.
Does receiving God's grace of salvation mean that we are perfect people?
Absolutely, not. No one is perfect. Or, good. Or, righteous. Call it what you will, depending upon which version of the Bible you read.
God told us that no one is perfect.
The only perfect person who ever lived on the face of this earth, was Jesus. While He was 100% man, He was also 100% God.
When Jesus came to earth, He knew what He was to do, here.
He didn't try to find the best people around, and try to get them to believe upon Him. He didn't approach only those who considered themselves, righteous.
Instead, He approached all people.
Especially, the sinful.
Just as He told us, in Luke 5:32, "I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."
Knowing that Jesus called sinners to repentance, makes my heart feel good.
After all, there were no perfect people then. Just as there are no perfect people, now. Not me. Not you. No one.
Even so, everyone who has been saved, has not just received forgiveness. They also have a testimony.
I have one. You do too, if you're saved. If you're not yet saved, you will have a testimony, once you come to Christ.
One of my Facebook (FB) friends was a child actor. His life didn't go as many people may have expected it would.
Eventually, he was drawn to Christ, and became saved.
Here is a link for you to check out, regarding Christopher Ball's website, Eternalplanner.com posted an article entitled, God Wakes Former Child Actor: http://www.eternalplanner.com/god-wakes-former-child-actor-christopher-ball-with-a-message-for-america/.
Please take the time to listen to Christopher Ball's testimony: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSTfOV2vHLQ&feature=youtu.be.
Knowing that Christopher has quite a testimony, and knowing that God has provided salvation for him, makes me once again grateful for God's grace.
God's grace towards him. Towards me. Towards all who believe.
If you know someone who is not yet saved, please speak with them. Plant those seeds for Christ, that God commanded us to do.
And, know that God will bless you, for doing work for Him.
Until next time...
