Time with God - July 29, 2011
And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world…Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest. But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
God is looking forward to pouring out his kindness on you in the ages to come!
God's grace is so much greater than you realize. We were "children of wrath". We deserved God's judgment. But God's love and mercy moved Him to act in grace, not giving us what we deserve, but giving us unbelievable restoration of our inner being to a wonderful relationship with Him. Still, God wants you to see today that this was just the beginning of His grace in your life.
God intends to keep on pouring His grace out on your life, showering you with His kindness for ages into the future.
