Not By Our Doing

Not By Our Doing

     On my mind this morning is two verses in 2 Timothy 1:8-9 Who hath saved us, and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, But is now made manifest ( sent forth ) by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.

     How wonderful are these words spoken here to the to us who believe that our salvation was in the hand of our loving Father from old eternity. Our Lord and savior Jesus Christ came to this Earth to tell us of this great salvation we have in him, not by our doing but by our God's doing in and through Jesus Christ  for all his chosen, elect sheep.

      I am thankful, me with a sinful, corrupt nature has been redeemed by the blood, and righteouness of Jesus Christ perfect work on the cross for me. What a great day this is knowing that.
