Hi all! Thanks again to Apothemary for the nomination. It has been fun thinking about the various quotes having an impact on my life. I hope you have enjoyed them as well! If nothing else, this exercise reminded me what I find valuable and important. Those will be the things I focus my energy!
For today’s quote I chose:
These are the words if the apostle Paul in his second letter to the church as Ephasus. He explains so elegantly and succinctly that salvation cannot be earned but is gifted to each one freely. My favorite part is: “so that no one may boast.”
No one is better than any other. All are sinners and receive salvation through God’s great gift. The murderer receives the same way as the liar. God makes no distinction between the two. In our human state we strive for gain. But in God’s economy, salvation cannot be gained, simply received with joy.
How about you? What do you think of Paul’s words? Do you have a favorite scripture? I’d love to hear from you!
Last but not least, my final nominations are:

Looking forward to reading your quotes!
As always, see you on the pavement
