Art of Living #5

Åґ☂ ◎ḟ ʟ☤√ḯη❡ #5 : "Your sins are forgiven you for his name's sake." (1 John.2:12).
Ѧ℘☺﹩☂◎łḯ¢ €ϰ℘øüηḓ : Many of us who start the Christian lives by receiving the joy of HIS GRACE in our lives through the gift of faith that God gave to us, slowly but steadily start to slip away in to a law based thinking after we have walked with God for a while. After a period of time, day after day we start to lose our joy because we unconsciously start to think that because we are good, God is showing favours to us instead of showing it to another person who deserves it not. What has happened? We have forgotten that all our past, present and future sins have been forgiven to us for Jesus' name sake. We have actually done nothing of great value to God and that we cannot do it until we die to deserve HIS GLORIOUS GIFT OF SALVATION. But the only thing we can do to God is to be grateful to Him for having shown His UNCONDITIONAL GRACE that BROUGHT UNDESERVED FAVOUR UPON OUR LIVES. The next time we start to think that we deserve to be blessed, immediately recognize that we are trying to claim God's blessings using our own name and God's answer will always be a "big no", "You don't deserve it". Let us always introspect our Christian walk and align ourselves always in the midst of His BLESSING ZONE which is GRACE THROUGH FAITH. When we judge ourselves, we will not be judged by God and hence will always be under a OPEN HEAVEN OF GOD'S BLESSINGS IN OUR LIVES (1 Cor 11:31). Blessings....
