God cares what you do

Scripture Reference: Isaiah 3:10-11

Say to the righteous that it will go well with them, for they will eat the fruit of their actions. Woe to the wicked! It will go badly with him, for what he deserves will be done to him.

Salvation—being forgiven for your sins and welcomed into God’s family forever—is a free gift. It was purchased for you by Jesus when He went to the cross for you.

You don’t earn your salvation by being good enough. You don’t lose it by being bad enough. It’s entirely dependent on what Jesus did, not what you do. You simply receive God’s gift by faith. No wonder the Apostle Paul exclaims,“thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!” (2 Corinthians 9:15).

But God is reminding us today that although salvation is a free gift, it does not mean that God doesn’t care how we live after we’re saved. Just the opposite—the terrible price Jesus had to pay for our forgiveness shows just how much God hates sin.

Today, Isaiah is telling us one of the basic truths about how God has set up this universe. Those who do what’s right will ultimately be blessed for it and those who do what’s wrong will experience negative consequences. Any actions that seem to have escaped their consequences in this life will find justice in the next. It’s never a mistake to do what is right.

Don’t Quit

Proverbs-29-25-HD-Wallpaper (1)
1 Peter 2:9

Most of us at one time or another has felt like quitting, at one point or another. It is during those dark moments the Lord often speak in that still small voice back to me, saying “I Love you Fay-Ann don’t quit now.” And what the enemy meant for evil I will turn it into a blessing if you just don’t quit!

I know His voice because he has spoken to me many times but on days when I was broken and crushed and he was asking me not to quit. I have always encouraged others not to give, He is the God of “I can.”I found when we began to get the word of God in our hearts we find the courage to face that which is facing us and the will to carry on, for He is still God. I want to encourage you he is the God who brings restoration so don’t quit!

Acts 20:24 However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me– the task of testifying to the gospel of God’s grace.

Phi13:7 7 But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. 8 What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing—-

Look what Jesus did for you on the Cross of Calvary! Don’t quit.
