God Does What We Can Not

Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus.

 Saving is all his idea, and all his work.

 All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. 

It’s God’s gift from start to finish! 

We don’t play the major role. If we did, we’d probably go around bragging that we’d done the whole thing! 

No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. 

He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.
Ephesians 2:7‭-‬10 MSG


Amazing to think how God can fill us & use us as living proof of His work.  When i think of what He’s done I’m humbled to say, “use me Lord to share your love, grace, mercy & joy.” But also know it’s not a matter of paying him back nor taking any credit.

Lyrics to this song by Keith Green/arr. By Phil Leager right from the start remind me I can’t add one thing to what Christ has done for me so I will praise Him and let Him be seen in me.


In Christ,  Beetle
