Daily Nugget

     Sunday, July 22nd, 2012.

Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill

A group of atheists were criticizing the Bible. One of them spoke about creation, saying, “What man with any common sense could believe that several thousand years ago God stooped down and picked up a piece of mud, breathed on it, and changed it into a human being?” A Christian man standing by overheard the conversation and responded with “I cannot answer all the questions about creation, but this I know. One night God stooped down, picked up the dirtiest piece of mud in this city, breathed upon it by His Holy Spirit, and changed a gambling, thieving, drinking wretch into a peace-loving man of God. I was that man.” 

We are saved not by who or what we are, but by Whose we are and what we become through Him. The apostle Paul in Ephesians 2:8-9  reminds us: “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 for loving us as we were and are.  Amen.
