Table for two . . .

But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy,
made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions–
it is by grace you have been saved.
Ephesians 2:4-5 NIV

The moment you believed in Me as your Savior, God lifted you out of the deadness of sin, just like He raised Me from the dead after three days, because He loves you so very much. This sounds like a science fiction tale, but it’s real, trust Me. I died for you so you can experience forgiveness, real joy on earth, and glorious eternal life in Heaven!

Now What? Pray: “Lord, I praise your name as the one and only sure salvation. I don’t need to worry or wonder if I’ll make it into Heaven; you already fought that battle for me through your death and resurrection! Thank you for the promise of a life with you. Strengthen my faith so I can lead others to know you.”
