New Years: 2008 is set in eternity!

Well, this is the last day of 2008. I am thankful to the Lord for all that He has given to me and taught me this year (I certainly do not deserve any of it). For the most part of 2008, I have been blogging, which I never had done before. Not only that, but I have also lived past a quarter of a century this year! And many other things have happened as well.

As I reflect, I am more humbled by the death of Jesus Christ today, because He is the only reason why I should not suffer for eternity in hell for what I've done this past year. And it will still be the same if I live on during 2009. It will still be Christ as my life, Christ as my pardon, Christ as my acceptance with the Father forever, and Christ as my portion and joy too! Although there are many things I've learned this year, as well as many experiences, one thing remains the same - it is all of Christ, in other words: ALL OF GRACE! :)

Thank God for His wonderful grace today, and never stop growing in your amazement of Him! (2 Peter 3:18, read this verse and meditate on it!)

In my post I describe the many ways God has blessed me this year, and when I think of all He has given me and taught me I can only reminisce over the time I was lost and say "Lord had you not saved me who knows where I would be today, and what I would be doing, I know it wouldn't be anything good, and yet you still died on a cross and bore my sins and You still saved me and have forgiven me all my sins." Penn, as you say it is all of Grace.
What an incredible Saviour we have.
