SCARS OF FAITH ( Part 1)

Many who have placed their faith exclusively in Jesus Christ and have chosen to walk in the precept of the Lord, those ones who have attained His friendship statues, have SCARS to show for it.

I, too, have scars, though I do not boast about it but I am a beloved child of God through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ, who atoned for my sin. I am part of “Oluwas stream” am enjoying a friendship that is very divine, a mystery, not by what I have done, he chose me, by his election. It is called GRACE đź’“

When you hear Abraham was a friend of God what comes to mind; Abraham was on ” paddy paddy level” if you will excuse my Nigeria parlance; it means he was on a very personal relationship, that they can interrupt each other’s day, go extra mile to maintain such fellowship.

When you hear that Enoch walked with God and was no more, you will think it is “tales by moon light” story series, they “gisted” from heaven to earh and back again till Enoch disappeared.

No Sir!!, any one who is a friend of God in the very sense of it, will show you his Scars. I call it SCARS OF FAITH
The person will show you sacrifices laid down to be able to be God’s friends. It come at a very great cost =SACRIFICE . The first sacrifice is your life. Yes, your life is placed on the AlTAR, and when I say your life, it means, your will, your right, even privileges, your ego, in short your blood is involved.

Ask Jesus when you see him, how come he came from heaven, took humanity, forsook the glory and splendour of heaven, became flesh, even agreed to die for people who don’t even care for him or care about their own life.

LOVE was Jesus motivation, love for his Father. Our father; love for mankind they created in love for companionship. GOD sent his son to die to reconcile, redeem mankind to God, to recreate garden of Eden in the heart of man. It took Jesus to GOLGOTHA, his place of death. Jesus loved his Father and must finish his Father’s will .

SACRIFICE , GOLGOTHA, DEATH ON THE CROSS equals to LOVE đź’•

His reward; THE SAVIOUR WITH A NAME ABOVE ALL OTHER NAME. A TERROR TO SATAN AND HIS COHORTS.
