Daily Nugget


Friday, May 13th, 2011.



Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.


“Believers who are motivated by legalism are always anxious to know what is expected of them. They want to do only what is necessary to make themselves look respectable. They crave specific rules so they can know precisely how to behave. They plod along hoping that someday their efforts will pay off. According to the New Testament, such people are legalists; they are using the law to establish their righteousness.”
(Erwin W. Lutzer)

Folks, when we look at the rules, we find just how much we have missed the mark. When we look at the cross, we see a Savior who paid the price to redeem us back to The Holy God. We can’t deserve it; we can’t earn it; but we must receive it by faith. The apostle Paul in Ephesians 2:8-9 says,
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

"God, thank You.
Amen."
(Enough said....)

Bro. Bill

God is Love! Let us reflect that love.
