Turn Around - Sunday's Dose - 18th December 2016

"Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord." - Acts 3:19.

Thoughts for Today

Rahab was a godly hero. Because she was willing to turn from her old ways and turn to God, he was able to do great things through her.

Rahab was a Canaanite prostitute. Even though the Canaanites were very much anti-God, Rahab acknowledged the Israelites' God as the one true God. Her faith was so strong that she helped two Israelite spies with the understanding they would protect her and her family when they attacked the city. When Jericho was conquered, at the command of Joshua, she and her relatives were taken to safety. (Joshua 2)

And so Rahab turned her back on her ungodly ways and chose to serve God. She became a part of the people of God and was even mentioned in the genealogy of Jesus.

Godly heroes turn from ungodliness.

Consider this …

Rahab's experience is one more reminder that the grace of God extends to
down-and-outers, the rejected, the rich, the poor—to everyone. Grace is undeserved favor. Although God's grace is deserved by none of us, because of Jesus it is freely given to all who ask.

No matter where you may be in your life right now or how hopeless things may seem to you—no matter what you've done—God's amazing grace is sufficient. If you are willing to turn from ungodliness and turn to the loving arms of Jesus, you will learn that God's grace is always enough.

Prayer : "Our Loving Heavenly Father God, I know there are some things in my life that are not pleasing to you. I want to turn around, to turn my back on those things and to turn every area of my life over to you. Please forgive me and help me to make a clean start and to accomplish your purpose for my life. I thank you that no matter what I've done, because of Jesus your grace is enough. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."
Have a Blessed Sunday and God Bless you.
