To Follow Jesus
My notes on Every Day with Jesus, written by Selwyn Hughes; revised and updated by Mick Brooks, published by CWR.
March/April 2016 Issue – Straight from the Heart, ‘I have you in my heart … all of you share God’s grace with me’ Philippians 1:7
The text set for today’s reading and meditation:
Philippians 4:23 (NIVUK): ”The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.”
I think that Selwyn’s conclusion to this March/April issue is excellent.
“It is grace that makes us citizens of heaven’s kingdom and raises our sights to a coming Saviour. What is more, it is by this transforming grace that He changes our death-ridden earthly bodies into radiant, resurrection bodies modelled on His.
It’s all grace isn’t it? Grace upon grace,. Can anything be more wonderful? Grace be also to you, dear reader, in Jesus’ name.”
At the moment, the words of the famous song – Amazing Grace – are going around my head and heart. Amazing, that God loves us so much that He freely gives us the gift of eternal life – to be with Him in a harmonious relationship.
