What a deal!

How’s this for a Cyber Monday Deal?

–  Justification: FREE! (Romans 3:24)

– Righteousness: FREE! (Romans 5:17)

– Grace: FREE! (Ephesians 2:8)

– Water of Life: FREE! (Revelation 21:6)

Something that I have been enjoying is that God wants to be everything to us. The Bible reveals our God as the great “I Am” meaning that everything we need, He is.  If we are hungry, He is our food. If we are weak, He is our power. If we are distressed, He is our peace. In the past couple of weeks in our home gatherings we have been enjoying the verse “Come, for all things are now ready” (Luke 14:17). God puts no requirement upon us that we need to struggle or strive through our own efforts to receive Him. The Lord has already prepared everything for us. All we have to do is come to Him!

Choosing God

Just wanted to share a song that I enjoyed at our Friday night home gathering:

“Dearest Lord, I come;
This is now my prayer,
Keep me open to You,
May I always love You.

Lord, I love You more today,
So much more than yesterday;
Lord, I need You, Lord, I love You.
Now that the choice is mine,
Lord, I still choose You;
Though the paths be not marked,
I’m still trusting in You.”

There’s more to the song but I really appreciated what a brother at the gathering shared about verse number 2.

“Now that the choice is mine,
Lord, I still choose You.”
As college students we now have so much freedom and we can make a lot of our own choices. But this verse touched me because I have a choice to make: is God going to be the God of my parents or is God going to be my God? We are free to do anything we want, we are free to make our own choices, and for me, my choice is to choose God. During my college years as I am getting an education, my choice is not for myself but for God.
