What has God done for Me

My quiet time thoughts~

He has only saved me from torment in hell because of my sins...
He has only sent His SON to die a horrible death for my sins...
He has only conquered death by rising from the dead...
He has only forgiven me for practially putting His Son on a cross...
He has only given me a new heart...
He has only cleansed me...
He has only given me new desires...
He has only given me a testimony...
He has only put me with a family that tests me, encourages me, and lifts me up...
He has only given me Godly friends to have sweet fellowship with...
He has only given me a letter 66 books long...
He has only let me experience true joy that only comes from fellowship with Him...

This list could go on forever...

Scripture I was in today!

giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. 13 For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. (Colossians 1:12-14 NIV)

giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. (Colossians 1:12 NIV)

in whom [Christ] we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. (Colossians 1:14 NIV)

For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness… (Colossians 1:13a NIV)

…and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves… (Colossians 1:13b NIV)

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory. (Ephesians 1:13b-14 NIV)

What has God done for you? Great things already!

Thanks for stopping by my Galla Rock Spot.

God even saved a wretch like me. I am washed in the blood of the lamb. This was a gift freely given
I deserve the fire of Hell, but Jesus saw fit to cover my sins with his own blood of atonement and make me holy.

Sweet-sister three,

I love the rock picture!
Thank you for your comment! How true your words are. Praise God that He saw fit to cover our sins. It is nothing that we have done but only by His shed blood we are set free. Thank you for your lovely words.

Revee,

He doesn't need us, we for sure need Him. Thank you for the comment.
