Words Of Wisdom From Mr. Old Geezer

mary the teach

i asked my friend ron, mr. old geezer for permission to use his post, "law and grace" for my ruby tuesday post.and here it is!
what can be nicer than a tender red heart that is so full of love?

Law and Grace

There are about 7 billion people on the face of this earth. If you extracted from each one the very best character traits, then put those traits into one man, that one man would still have to bow before God and cry out for mercy to be saved. We’ve got to quit trying to be saved by doing good things or being a moral person...or by even keeping the Ten Commandments.

The Law says “if,” the Gospel says “therefore.” The law says you must earn salvation, while the Gospel says salvation is a gift. The Law demands holiness. The Gospel provides holiness. The Law says run, but it doesn’t give us legs. The Gospel says fly, and it gives us wings of grace. ~Adrian Rogers

Jesus said "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. - John 14:6

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. - John 3:16

Are you one of God's "whosoever's"? Do you want to have everlasting life?
Believe in God's only begotten Son and God says you will have everlasting life.
And be assured... if God said it, He will do it! God cannot lie like you and me.
He will always keep His promises.

Do you agree? Can you say Amen!

God Bless You and Have a Wonderful SONDAY!

Terry, Should a person not also do good deeds as well. I think in the past the Monks and Nuns missed out in a lot when they stayed in their Monasteries and Convents, never to seen the world or doing good amongst the misery that was beyond the walls of their cloistered ( I do not mean here wealthy)lives.
Yes I agree with all that was in your post but I feel that their must be more than what is stated here. Yes you can only got to the Lord threw Jesus. I just think that if that is all you do you are missing something.

oh sonny you are so right about doing good!
when a person becomes saved that is exactly what they should be doing because you will love the lord so much you will want to do good deeds!
you know sonny though when jesus said "it is finished" he meant it that all that was needed to be done for our place in heaven is done!
the thief who was saved on the cross that day went, when he died right to paradise with the lord and really sonny it was his believing in the lord jesus christ that saved him.
he never had the chance to do good works and he never even had the chance to be baptised but the lord has saved him and now he is in heaven!
just to think of that!
thank you for such a good question sonny, my boy! terry
