The last time I blogged about Scriptures in August (missed it? not to worry. click here), I promised I was going to make it a regular feature. So here is the scripture for September.
Scripture 1 - Romans 8:33-38
The Apostle Paul should be one of my favorite Bible person. Whenever I read any of his letters, he comes across to me as someone with high intellect and knowledge. But this is not about Paul, I digress.
I love this passage because it reminds me of the steadfastness of God's love in every situation. This scripture comes across to me as a challenge from God; something like "oya tell me what you want to mention now that you think can separate us that I did not list here.."
Common, they even listed life and death....
So cheer up people, nothing, I repeat, nothing can separate us from God's love.
Scripture 2 : Romans 8:28
Romans 8 should be one of my favorite scriptures so sorry that all my scriptures for this month is culled from there.
Erm, this scripture is one of my favorite ones because it is a source of comfort. Have something ever happened to you and you were like "how? But God that was not in the plan!"
Now don't get me wrong; there are times that things go wrong and we must pray because prayer is a vital too; don't underestimate that and say "all things work together".
But whatever happens to you, just know it is working for a greater good. I've seen this happen first hand in my life so I know what I'm saying.
Scripture 3 - Romans 8:14,16
I love this scripture especially the second verse and I'll tell you why.
If you came from a Christian family just like me, chances are you probably responded to your first altar call when you were a child, maybe around 8-9 years.
I wish it was all it took and we could have been okay, but that wasn't all.
You saw yourself going back to that altar when next a guest minister comes to church and makes an altar call that touches your heart. You repent again and the cycle continues probably into teenage.
You get where I'm going? For people like me, we needed that conviction that we are children of God. I was tired of the altar call cycle. I needed one last real experience. And trust me, when I first stumbled upon this scripture, I was like Halleluyah.
I don't know when the final "altar call" happened, but I know that when it did, I had that conviction that I am now a child of God, and this time, it was for real...
I never doubted it again.
Yeah, so there you have it.
3 scriptures for September.
Which one do you relate to the most?
Hugs and kisses.
