But He gives more grace. Therefore He says; "God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble." James 4:6...God is looking for pure hearts, not perfect ones. From 2 Chronicles 29 & 30... When King Hezekiah took the throne, he decided that he wanted to seek after the true God. He announced that he wanted the whole nation to keep the Passover. Those who heeded his request worked diligently to prepare the Temple and themselves to keep the Passover. Even with their tireless efforts, they were not ready on time and had to keep the feast in the second month instead of the first. Finally, the Temple was ready but some of the people were not. In a figure of Jesus our Intercessor, King Hezekiah prayed for those not totally prepared, and God healed them. In Communion, God's heart is for us to do the best we can. We are not supposed to take a bath to get clean enough to take a bath, but to come to God with a pure heart. He gives MUCH GRACE!!!
IN WHOM WE HAVE REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS BLOOD, EVEN THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS. COLOSSIANS 1:14... Did you know that the blood of a baby in the womb never comes in contact with the mother and that it is contributed by the male seed, not by the female egg? This was a divine plan of God when He designed men & women. God knew He would need to send a Savior into the world to redeem them!!! We all need a SAVIOR and only the blood of Jesus can cleanse us and make us white as snow!!! Redeem means to pay a price to ransom someone. Our redemption could only be bought with the perfect, pure blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus came from the Holy Spirit when He overshadowed Mary, therefore the blood of Jesus was completely pure. His blood was the only blood that could pay for our sins because it came directly from God and was never contaminated with sin. It was the perfect payment and sacrifice for our forgiveness!!!The blood of Christ is still cleansing and washing us today as much as it did two t
