“Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.” (Colossians 4:5-6)
I am asked,”How do you know you are saved since you profess to be a Prodigal?” Well, It’s all a matter of Faith and Grace. I believe I am a Child of the King, washed clean by the blood of Christ Jesus. All my sin is forgiven. I was ‘outside’ once, but Praise God for Mercy and Grace, I determine to live as God would have me live and wherein I fall short of that mark, He counts me among His Family with Christ as my intermediary. Not perfect, just FORGIVEN. God said it and I believe it. The Sinister Minister knows of my faith and is constantly attempting to propel me outside God’s will. I realize this and am diligently seeking the wisdom through study of God’s Word, just as Paul wrote to the Church in today’s scripture,I must be wisely prepared for barbs and temptations. An impossibility without The Holy Spirit. All of it comes with Faith. It’s just that simple.
(I misstated yesterday when I said God wiped every living creature off the face of the earth with water. Of course, Noah and his family were the only ones spared, Sorry).
And that’s what I get from MY box of Chocolates. AMEN
