6) Man is a mere phantom as he goes to
and fro: He bustles about, but only in
vain; he heaps up wealth, not knowing
who will get it.
7) But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you. All that matters at the end of our life is not how many posessions we have, or how much money is in our bank account. What matters is whether or not we are ready to be received by Jesus in heaven. Do you know Him?
~4) But when the kindness and love of God
our Savior appeared,5) he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us
through the washing of rebirth and renewal
by the Holy Spirit, 6)whom he poured out
on us generously through Jesus Christ our
Savior, 7) so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having
the hope of eternal life.
Salvation is a gift to everyone who will
simply accept it and recieve it! We do not have to work for salvation. God sent His
Son, Jesus to die for each one of us. Our
debts were paid then. Our sins were washed
away then. All we have to do is open our
hearts and minds and ask Jesus to come
live within us. We must confess that we
know we are sinners, but that we know
Jesus paid for our sins on the cross. We
are not debtors. We are the recipients of
the greatest gift ever given, Jesus'
unconditional love and forgiveness. Why
would anyone refuse this free gift? I
~"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened,
and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and
learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart,
and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is
easy and my burden is light."
