God doesn’t owe us anything, but in His grace, He still gives us good things. We don’t even deserve the next breath we take, but God in His grace, takes care of us.
We don’t deserve to go to heaven, but God’s grace has provided the way, He sent His Son Jesus Christ to die for our sins.
We may feel that God should over look a lot of the things we do and the things we say, but we have no right to expect anything from God except His judgment.
We are sinners and sin is against God. God forgives sin and we can live in peace. Satan loves to bring up our past, but when we repent and ask God’s forgiveness our sins are cast as far as the east is to the west, to be remembered no more. Some times we have to remind Satan of that.
As a Christian we put our trust in Christ not ourselves. Because at times we make a mess of things, but God knows what is ahead of us and as I said we put our trust in Him. God’s love for us is greater than anything we could imagine.
“Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you, I go to prepare a place for you.” John 14: 1-2.
