It seems that nearly every day now God is showing me amazing verses in His Word that I hadn't seen before. (Even though, often times, I've read them before. Sometimes numerous times before.)
The one for today:
"10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
11 For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him."
Oh praise God for this one! God tells us all over His Word that we can't save ourselves, that only He can save us. And what a comforting thought to know that we, God's children (understanding that only those who are saved are God's children), are not judged by our sins! Our salvation is eternal. But we, the eternally saved, will only be judged based on what we do for Christ. We can either receive or lose rewards, but we cannot lose our salvation. I can't say it enough, praise God for that!
