Amazing Grace

One of the songs sang at Joe Biden’s inauguration was Amazing Grace. Most of us are familiar with this song but its main point is a good reminder of our journey as Christ followers and makes a beautiful soundtrack to our lives.

Jesus came to seek and save the lost.
Luke 19:10 (https://bit.ly/1QiQ8KK)

As we come to know Christ we become found. With a clear conscience we can sing this song, with thankfulness loud and clear. Today, give thanks that God has found you and pray for people you know who are still lost.

100% saved

What must I do to be saved?
What must I do?
How can I earn it?

Though we are completely messed up, the great news is that Jesus didn’t just take some sins away, He took them ALL away and defeated sin and death completely. Nothing stands between you and God, you are 100% restored forever. The proof – He is at the right hand of God (Hebrews 12:2 – http://bit.ly/2LwlzE3) – sitting down, because salvation is done, complete, finished. Nothing more needs to be done. Simply take hold of it and be at peace with Him.

Read Ephesians 2:8-9 (http://bit.ly/2jpgXYf)

Read Romans 10:14-15 (http://bit.ly/2QmhN6S)

Verses 14-15 reminds us that people cannot come to know Jesus unless they are told about Him and for that to happen someone must be sent to share the Good News. It goes on to say how beautiful are the feet which bring Good News.

If I truly believe in Jesus and salvation, I will share Him with others. My commitment for 2019 (and it would be amazing if you decided to do the same) is to make my feet beautiful, not with a pedicure but by sharing God’s Good News with others.

Let’s make 2019 a year of telling the Good News.

Read Romans 10:10-13 (http://bit.ly/2GzeyVW)

In the news we often read about people who are murderers, who are corrupt and people who have abused others etc. and verse 13 challenges me to remember that these people can know Jesus.

‘Anyone who calls on the Lord will be saved.’

God’s salvation is not limited to those who have a certain life style or do specific things, it does not discriminate. It is accessible for all, it is about believing in Jesus before behaving for Jesus. In 2019 how will you, a Jesus follower, share the possibility for salvation for everyone.
