    This year I will be sharing brief excerpts from the articles, sermons, and books I am currently reading. My posts will not follow a regular schedule but will be published as I find well-written thoughts that should be of interest to maturing Christian readers. Whenever possible, I encourage you to go to the source and read the complete work of the author.

LOOKING BACK

I had lived with no idea how thoroughly sin had penetrated every area of my life. Even the idea that I needed some kind of forgiveness was ridiculous to me. God, however, is merciful.

I was His enemy, yet God brought me to Him. Paul said:

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)

I would never have chosen Christ, but by His grace – He chose me. God’s love is not a fleeting emotion for He gives everlasting salvation to fallen men and women. Charles H. Spurgeon writes:

I do not believe that there ever would have been a man delivered from this present evil world if it had not been according to the will, the purpose, and the predestination of God.

God’s salvation will never be diminished by time, nor circumstances. I now know the joy of adoption into the family of God. I have a home not built by men. The prodigal son has been given true hope.
