KJ2000(i)7 And preached, saying, There comes one mightier than I after me, the thong of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose.
We are not worthy to be servants of Jesus but, thru His love and grace we can be His children.
King James Version (KJV)
2 Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
These are my thoughts please share yours.
2 We are known as special from before the foundations of the earth because, God foreknew we would come to faith. We are set apart from sin by the blood of Christ. Thru our faith we are able to serve Jesus thru obedience in following the Spirit. God’s grace brought us our Savior who died for us and recieving Him gives us a peace because we know He loves us because of the cross and that He will do good for us because of His love. We are to share God’s love to the world as a act of doing the Great Commission.
3 All blessing come form God and the biggest blessing s recieving Jesus as Lord and Savior. We are born at the time we find faith in accepting Jesus as Lord we become born again. God shows us mercy each time we fall short of His will. Much like Jesus rose again from the dead we have a hope that we will be risen from the dead as well.
Keep our eyes on Jesus.
