Welcome to Good Apples Friday
For my bible study I memorize catechism questions.
I really like these two I've been memorizing.
What is you only comfort in life in and death?
That I am not my own, but belong body and soul in life in death to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ. He has fully paid for all my sins and has set me free from the tyranny of the devil. He also watches over me in such a way that not a hair from my head may fall without the will of the Father in heaven; in fact all things must work together for my salvation. Because I belong to him, Christ, by his Holy Spirit assures me of eternal life and makes me whole-heartedly willing and reading to live for Him.
I really like this whole thing, but I highlighted the words that I think are really important. I love how it says, "All things must work together for my salvation." That's so comforting to know. That God is in control and everything that happens in my life works together for my salvation.
What must you know to live and die in the joy of this comfort?
Three things: How great my sin and misery are; how I am set free from all my sin and misery; and how I should thank God for such deliverance.
Again just the things I highlighted were some really important stuff. How GREAT MY sin and misery are. I am horrible. I am a horrible sinner. BUT, I am SET FREE FROM ALL my sin and misery. I am set free from ALL of that horrible stuff. And I SHOULD THANK GOD for that. Because he is so GOOD to me. So good. He died for me. He died for the the one who constantly disobeys him. He died for the girl who complains about lots of things when I don't deserve anything I have.
ISN'T HE SO GOOD GUYS?
I hope you like this post and it helps you!
Remember to NEVER stop thanking God for the great things he has done.
Even if you're going through something horrible.
You're still breathing because of him.
You still have food because of him.
You still have clothes because of him.
Please give me some feedback. I'd love to hear from you awesome people.
bouncing in to say bye,
P.S. I'm starting to lose ideas for Good Apples Friday and Bernie's Random Ramblings. If you could give me some suggestions that'd be awesome. Thanks guysss!
