Another Random Bible Verse

I just  can’t think of anything else to write about at the moment so here’s another random bible verse ……

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. Ephesians 2:8-9 (KJV)

There’s nothing we can do to save ourselves or free ourselves from sin.  Jesus did die for us, all we have to do is believe and keep Gods commandments.  It is true that God wants us to serve one another, but we can’t get into heaven by simply doing good things.

It’s also true that God considers laziness a sin, but working hard isn’t going to get us into heaven.  The work to get us into heaven was done when Jesus died for us on the cross.  What more work could possibly be done?

Having faith isn’t always easy, and every Christian has struggled with it at some point.  It can seem difficult to have faith, but God has never given us any reason or cause to doubt him.

We all do want credit for the hard work we do, but hard work isn’t about boasting or bragging.  Hard work is its own reward.  Jesus never boasted or bragged about any of the work that he did.

Random Bible Verse 1

Romans 12:2 “Do not be conformed to this world,but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect”

Christians are called to live for God and cast aside worldly things.  Worldly things don’t matter to God, and no worldly possessions or concerns will make it to heaven.  

Gods doesn’t want us to go chasing worldly things or worldly matters.  However, he does understand that we do have some worldly needs and will provide them for us,

It can be hard to hear God through the noise of this world, but we must take time to shut out the world and listen to him.  God is always trying to tell us things through the things we encounter during our day, we just have to keep our eye out for them.
