GOD'S KINDNESS TOWARD US!
By: Sister Cindy Feeman
"But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared, He saved us not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration ans renewing by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out upon us RICHLY through Jesus Christ our Savior." Titus 3: 4-6
Who am I that God should give unto me His loving kindness, mercy and grace? Who am I that He should shed His blood for my transgressions, take my place, my punishment, my death? It's hard to fathom.
when we want to be kind it is always easy to be kind to our friends and our loved ones. But often times it is hard to show kindness to someone we don't know... someone we feel is undeserving. Sometimes going against what we feel is right... because they have hurt us or a loved one. They have wronged someone, or even sinned. They may even seem evil to us.
But such were some of us in the sight of God, yet He chose to grant His mercy... pour out His grace and extended unfathomable compassion toward us ALL.
He didn't measure His loving kindness by our degrees of unrighteousness, for we are ALL undeserving of it!
And to top it off, He gave the infilling of the Holy Ghost so we could have power to be over-comers.
That is true loving kindness... that is life!
"Because your loving kindness is better than life, my lips will praise you."
