Here are some verses for you to ponder..

Romans 5:2
Grace in which we now stand

His Grace makes us rich

Ephesians 2;8
For it is by Grace you have been saved, through faith

2 Thess 2:16

James 4:16
But he gives us more Grace. ..... gives Grace to the humble

1 Tim 1;14
The Grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly

Titus 2;11
For the Grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.

Grace and Grace Alone!!!

Nails

Lets look at some of the objects around the Cross and try to gain some understanding.

Nails

Jesus was nailed to the cross.

When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross. Colo 2:13,14

So what does this teach us? God nailed the written code that was against us on the cross.
So the next time you remember your past sins, remember the nails. Your long list of iniquity and sins has been nailed to the cross and washed by the blood of Jesus. Nail this point down to your heart, so that you will be free from guilt.

Next time, when the devil comes with to make you guilty, show the nails and nail him down. :)

A Reply to "Been Thinnking" Post

This is one of the reply that i got for the "Been Thinking" Post.
Found it useful..

You prayed to stop the rain. Someone else ( like a farmer or an agriculturist) prayed wanting the rain. Two conflicting prayer requests to God. God has all the power and authority to make His decision to whom He would answer.
Praying with authority is good. But the motives also play a part I believe. You got stuck in the rain. You wanted to go. It was for "you". When Jesus stopped the winds, it was for "Others" ( the disciples who were afraid). Whenever he commanded the spirit or the sickness to leave the prayer was for "others". But when he prayed in the Gethsemane to remove the bitter vessel (Cross) it was for "him". And God DID NOT ANSWER even Jesus' prayer in a positive way.
Praying for others; Living for others. That is God's plan for his disciples. Only few know that. Among them only few try to follow that to a certain extent. Otherwise we all live for ourselves. "Egocentric" !
