So, first of all, let me apologize for missing this week’s Martyr Monday post. I actually have no excuse at all and ask your forgiveness for dropping the ball on it.
Secondly, I want to present you with a great song by Third Day in keeping with our Who You Are in Christ theme. I have talked about grace before and how it can be difficult to understand and accept, sometimes nearly impossible; nonetheless, it is crucial to do so. It is absolutely essential to living a successful, victorious, and effective Christian life. Grace is key. So without further ado, I hope this impacts you.
P.S. Tomorrow is the National Day of Prayer in America. I strongly encourage you all to set time aside (which, let’s face it, we ought ot be doing anyway right?) to honor that day, being thankful that we have it, and be praying for whatever God lays on your heart. Whether it’s this nation, the persecuted Church, lost loved ones, the hungry in Third World countries, health issues, or strength for the days to come. But remember not to treat God like Santa Claus. This isn’t about praying for just what we want. It’s about praying for God’s will to be accomplished on earth, and we need to do so with thankfulness and humility. That is all.
It seemed like I had run out of second chances And they sentenced me to die And I was just like a dead man walking I was running out of time
But you came to me and opened my eyes You gave me a brand new life
I am innocent and I have been set free I no longer have chains around my feet And no matter where I go or what they say I am innocent
Many years have passed since the day that I met you But your words are still the same And every time I find myself with joy or sadness I am calling out your name
‘Cause you came to me and opened my eyes You gave to me a brand new life
