Saved from Self’s Strainings!

Romans 9:16 “So then it does not depend on the man who wills or the man who runs, but on GOD WHO has mercy.”

Saved from Self’s Strainings!

Sin sometimes hits us with gravest of symptoms; it’s sickness re-pains us till Pride has been purged. 

Infectious within us; it’s stains brand us sinners thus Hopeless its endlessly lingering scourge!

Then came HE — our SAVIOUR, WHOSE sovereign selection chose us, even JESUS! Our conquering KING!

So we have been rescued from self-straining actions. In HIS finished work resting; cleansed by Love’s Crimson!

As HIServant made speechless and spotless by our SAVIOUR’s blood,

Devotional: Two more verses today: 

Galatians 5:4 “You have been severed from CHRIST, you who are seeking to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace.”

Ephesians 2:9 “…not of works, lest anyone should boast.”

Today I am reduced to tears yet again for the wondrously amazing, unfettered and unearned, Grace of our LORD GOD!

“Tetelestai! Tetelestai!” John 19:28-30 reminds us that HE alone BEGAN the work needed for redemption and salvation. 

It also fully shows us that HE alone FINISHED the work as well! 

Revelation 1:8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the LORD GOD, “WHO is and WHO was and WHO is to come, the Almighty!”

Abba, FATHER! Even so, come quickly! 

Amen and amen!
