Grace: Accepting God’s Gift to You

Ephesians 2 uses the phrase “dead in your sins.” But what does that really mean? Dead means lifeless, powerless, inanimate. It means we were incapable of doing anything to change our situation. But God is loving and merciful, and He chose to give us new life. That’s the beauty of His grace—we’ve done nothing to deserve it. He simply gives it to us. And once we’re alive in Him, He gives us the privilege of walking in this new life and serving Him.

    I am having problems with my login, it says that it is already in the system, and then it tells me I have an incorrect letter or number. I would like to order more than one booklet and not have to go to each different book separately. How can I do that? My email address is stayfit57@netscape.net. Any help will be welcomed.

    Good morning. I just want to thank everyone who works sharing my Lord’s Love and Care for me. I really enjoy the daily, 3 month booklet I receive from you all and the Beautiful readings in it. Besides my Bible, this book helps me so much to understand Why God could love someone like me who is not worthy of His Love. I feel the Joy of His Holy Presence when I read the daily stories. If you can please pray for me and my husband and 3 sons. Financially we are having a really hard time, then arguments start and hearts get broken. But I know God has got this and I know He has a Huge plan for us. I have All Faith in God that He will ptovide for us, and I keep asking Him to direct me and show me what His Will for me is. I know He’s given me a gift of something but because all I’ve been through for many yrs, I can’t seem to see or feel what gift I’m Blessed with. I know He has something special planned for me and all I want is to Please Him and to feel my family feel Proud of me. I’ve been very physically sick for few yrs and can’t work or do like I use too. I’m going to try to get Disability and being almost 57 yrs old, I Pray and I please ask you all to pray that I can receive it. It’s very hard trying to take care of my guys like a good mom should do but somethings I just cant do anymore. I pray for healing of my body,soul,spirit and mind. Depression is playing a big part too. But your daily reading in those great books help me more than I can tell you. So again, Please Pray for me and my guys. I Do Believe in Prayers. Thank you and God Bless.
