More To The Sermon On The Mount (Pastor Charles Lawson)

Who are you…

Who are you keeping your mind and thoughts on?  Who are you keeping your eyes on?  If you are more involved in the latest TV show or what the celebrities are up to and you have no idea on what is happening around you then I you may be on your way to being deceived.  Today may I encourage you to seek the Lord with all your heart and soul.

Ephesians 2:4-7
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.  And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus,  in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.

Salvation is a gift from God – it is by grace that you are saved. There is nothing we can do, no great feat of selflessness or charity, which qualifies us worthy to be in the presence of God. We are qualified only because of the riches of His mercy, and because Jesus laid down His life for all of us. By grace through faith in Christ Jesus alone we are raised from death to life and display the glorious wealth of His grace. All of this is possible because of love, “because of His great love with which He loved us”. (NKJV)
