It’s Day 1 of our 5 day fast! We will be reading Ephesians 2 ๐Ÿ™ > .  The late Canadian evangelist Ern Baxter once said, “When Jesus said, ‘It is finished,’ it was finished and you either take it finished or you don’t get it at all. We are constantly trying to improve what cannot be improved. Imagine someone unveiling a great work of art while everyone stands amazed at the beauty of the painting. But an amateur in the crowd grabs a brush and a daub of paint and approaches the painting saying, ‘I think he missed it here.’ The crowd shouts, ‘Keep your hands off that canvas.’ The masterpiece of the cross is a finished work and any attempt to add to it only destroys its power and effectiveness.” Christ’s work on the cross is enough—a masterpiece of grace and love. It beauti-fully depicts both our helpless state and his unsolicited benevolence in a way that is both tragic and glorious at the same time. Stare at his masterpiece. The more we see the gospel for what it truly is, the deeper our response of reverence, gratefulness, wonder, and joy. It is impossible to encounter his workmanship and move from the experience unchanged. What’s equally amazing is this same Divine Craftsman is at work on another masterpiece—you. In Ephesians 2:10, Paul says that “we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Will you let him work in and through you to produce what he envisioned for you, even before the creation of the world? . . #everynationcalifornia #everynation #ephesians2 #fasting #everynationfast #itisfinished #thecross #storytellerchurch #divine #faith #grace #jesuschrist #prayer #fasting #socalchurch #ernbaxter #qotd #scriptureoftheday #scripture #ephesians28 #enfast2018

Another pice of "art"  Decided to do a quote from Ephesians 2:9  just because of the meaning  Sorry to those who might have I offended you,  this was not intended for that . It is your own choice to really read it or not wether to think about it or not , wether to belive it or not. But the point is Be kind to one another for it helps both you and the person you are being kind to . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .  #calligraphy  #positivecaligraphywriting #inspiration #ephesians28 (December 24,2017)
There is nothing in this world that we can do to save ourselves to reach eternal salvation.๐Ÿ˜ณ Zip. Zero. Nada.๐Ÿšซ The only reason why we have this opportunity to be with the Lord in His kingdom is because of what Jesus did on the cross. And why you may think? Well check out Romans 5:8 and it tells us that even though we were dying in our sin, Jesus still gave His life because He loves us that much because there is hope for all of us.โค๏ธ We, as a creation, don’t deserve any blessings that the Lord bestows upon us. I mean as man we disobey our creator time after time. We should no longer turn our backs from Him. Jesus is the greatest hero to ever live.๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป Heck He is greater than any fictional hero also. Jesus is 100% real for one and sacrificed Himself for all of mankind. Sorry superman you’re good but Jesus is better.โœŒ๐ŸฟDon’t let the world fool you brothers and sisters. The enemy is strong, but our God is stronger! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฟ #ephesians28 #romans58 #wecantsaveoursleves #onlygodcan #heisgreater #jesusisbetter #hetrulylovesus #psalm1251 #zion ๐Ÿ”
๐Ÿ’˜ "And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;  2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:  3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.  4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,  5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, by grace ye are saved;  6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:  7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.  8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:" Ephesians 2:1-8 is fire. Since reading, it shot me through my heart and soul.๐Ÿ’˜ Goodnight loved ones. ๐Ÿ’•  #godslove #agapelove #godsgrace #thelivingword #iwasdead #butgod ๐Ÿ’ฏ #ephesians2 #ephesians28 #acts238 ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ#OhMyHeart #ohmysoul #prayer #growingpains #livetheword ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒฒ

“It is by grace we have been saved!” #ephesians28
I think this is so important to remember, it's easy to think that God is judging our every decision and action, and yes, we will have to account for those things, but giving our hearts to Jesus, and building a relationship with Him is ultimately what is going to give us our reward in Heaven. "For it is by grace you have been saved, through your faith--and this is not from yourselves, but a gift from God" - Ephesians 2:8 when I was younger, up until a few years ago when I started leaning on God and not on myself, I thought that I would go to Heaven because I was a good person, because of all the things I did for others, but then I really delved into this passage and realized that I can't "earn" my way to that reward, that it has already been freely given to me by my Heavenly Father. A inner peace flowed through me that day and it really hit how good our Father is. #goodgoodfather #kindnessmatters #liveinpeace #grace #mercy #verseoftheday #ephesians #ephesians28
Grace the greatest gift from God ๐ŸŽ#sundaymorning #devotion #ephesians28 #bygracewearesaved
God gave us a great gift, His grace. All we have to do is receive it. #harvestsf #thegift #ephesians28
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.  Ephesians 2:8โ€ญ-โ€ฌ9 . .

Sorry for the late post, my friends! . This verse has been on my heart. First of all, this truth is near and dear to my heart. It. Is. Life. . Second, I’ve been thinking (translation: banging my head against a wall) about this little missing piece regarding some characters. I open my Bible app one day, and I see this. And it clicked. That was it! That was the missing piece! It felt like a gift from God. . No, the irony was not lost on me. Another gift from God. . This anecdote is little, small, and really only special to me, especially when compared to the big, beautiful, amazing thing referenced in this verse. . But both are gifts. Gifts from my Abba. Gifts I do not take for granted. ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ . And thus concludes tonight’s episode of Late Night Ramblings with Joy. ๐Ÿ˜˜
Verse of the day!  #grace #ephesians28 #verseoftheday #bibleverse #cccmchapelstore
