I should never lack for anything to pray about. I can thank God, all day long, for my family, friends, and brothers/sisters in Jesus. There is no lacking in that. I should have my hands full.
God loves me. God picked me out at the very start. God has included me, from the beginning, is great plan to save us all when we believe in Jesus. God is God. I may not understand his way of doing things but I am thankful that he does them. I don’t know why God would have picked me out.
- It is all enabled by the Holy Spirit.
- It is a gift and nothing earned.
- It is the Spirit of God in me that brings us to the glory of Jesus, the Messiah (Anointed one).
Meanwhile, we’ve got our hands full continually thanking God for you, our good friends—so loved by God! God picked you out as his from the very start. Think of it: included in God’s original plan of salvation by the bond of faith in the living truth. This is the life of the Spirit he invited you to through the Message we delivered, in which you get in on the glory of our Master, Jesus the Messiah.
