This was shared by my friend LeighAnn Mycko and it is such a lovely reminder that even when we fee alone as grace believers we never really are and we must keep on sharing grace and fighting the good fight of faith.
Each one of us, before we were saved and came to the knowledge of the truth, was in darkness.
Each one of us, before we were saved and came to the knowledge of the truth, believed lies.
Each one of us, before we were saved and came to the knowledge of the truth, was a fool.
All of us grace believers came from a place of unbelief.
All of us grace believers were once consumed with our own vain imaginings.
All of us grace believers were once children of disobedience.
We failed to give God the glory.
We failed to be thankful to God.
We failed to worship and serve the Creator more than the creature.
But now, we know we are justified by his blood, saved from wrath, and that we shall live with him.
But now, we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen.
But now, our conversation is in heaven as we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Change doesn’t happen over night.
Studying rightly divided takes time and effort.
Sometimes life gets in the way and slows down that progress.
It happens to us all at one time or another.
Keep going anyhow.
Don’t ever stop believing.
Don’t ever stop studying.
Stick to sound doctrine, because when everyone leaves you, sound doctrine won’t!
