I have a quick thought this morning before I scurry off to a GRAND’s 6th grade graduation.
Page 98 of James Banks book Praying for Prodigals reads in part this way:
“You know what it’s like to have a world full of prodigal children, and only one child who did what was right–your Son, our Savior! You love us so much, you “gave him up for us all” (Romans 8:32)!”
Can you imagine giving up your one and only child who does right for a bunch of no goods who deliberately choose to do wrong?!!
Can ANY ONE fault Him for denying entry into HIS Heaven to ANY ONE (and Every One) who rejects the Sacrifice of HIS ONE and ONLY SON?
It really is a no-brainer, isn’t it?
Romans 8:32 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
32 He that spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?
via Romans 8:32 KJ21 – He that spared not His own Son, but – Bible Gateway.
And as a bonus look again at the verse: SINCE He gave us Salvation in His One and Only Son will He not freely give us all other things we need?
Like I said, it’s a no-brainer!
Are we challenged today to use the MIND OF CHRIST? That is the only way we are going to THINK right, don’t you think? 🙂
Got Sheila home yesterday!! And got to spend some time with Baby Girl! A RED LETTER day for sure!!
We have the God-given Right to do right in this wrong World,
Thank You, ABBA, for James Banks and the writing skills and the messages You gave him for us. And as I read and prayed this morning, I pray again: I pray for our prodigals that they will turn to You, LORD, for Your sake and for theirs.
HOLY SPIRIT, move us to crown this day with goodness given us through JESUS, our SAVIOR and LORD. And again we ask You heal our sick and afflicted that we bring before You in these moments. Amen and ___.
