A WORD FROM:
JANUARY 17TH 2001
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in His blood, to declare His righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom also we have access by faith into His grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: Knowing that tribulation worketh patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope:
And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I gather glory in my imfirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I will take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in neccesities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: For when I am weak, then I am strong.
But God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us to sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come He might shew the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. For by grace ye are saved through Christ Jesus. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and not of yourselves; it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were afar off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME...
