Saved aNd called // 21-04-22

“For God saved us and called us to live a holy life. He did this, not because we deserved it, but because that was his plan from before the beginning of time—to show us his grace through Christ Jesus.” 2 Timothy 1:9 NLT

Salvation and holiness are both gifts of grace made possible through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, and both need to be responded to. Firstly to make that divine exchange as I call upon the name of Jesus as my Saviour, trusting in His righteousness and receiving His forgiveness, but then choosing to embark on that process of change as I follow Jesus as my Lord and King, becoming like Him in character and set apart for His purpose, seeking His Kingdom first! When you understand how much you are loved, and how much better God’s plans really are, it brings such a peace! Lord, help me to stop with the striving and the stressing, to rest in Your grace, in Your undeserved favour, trusting in Your leading, Your good provision, and Your perfect will for my life! Thank You that I am Yours and You are mine. Here I am Lord, make me holy, and use me for Your glory. Amen 🙌🏼❤️
