Gift #391: Grace

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade.  For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. 21 Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God.  Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart.”  I Peter 1: 3-4, 18-22

Today I am thanking God for another year of seeing His faithfulness and learning His heart.  I am grateful for His grace poured out on us and that He allows me to participate in His story by sharing grace and love with others.  As I celebrate my spiritual birthday, I pray that my life would be a pleasing gift to my Savior.

Blessings to you,

Sarah

    Happy “Spiritual Birthday” to you. I’d love to know more about how things have gone since you sat there in my second grade classroom. I enjoy your writings. “Mrs. Warder” — Margery
