God's Grace

I called this painting "Grace".  Since this is a painting of ballet dancers "Grace" would naturally be a fitting name.  Not for the reason you may think.  Yes, the ballet dancers are graceful, but more important is the Grace of God through Jesus because when I fall He is there to catch me, save me and deliver me.  I am really grateful to Jesus for the gift of salvation.

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God--not by works, so that no one can boast."  Ephesians 2:8-9 NIV

Let's pray:  Dear Lord Jesus, I lift up my friends, family and all of you out there in cyberspace who read these words.  I pray that you all will accept and appreciate the gift of God's grace and that the Lord will open the eyes of those who do not believe.  I say these things in Jesus' name. Amen.

"Similarly, encourage the young men to be self-controlled. In everything set them an example by doing what is good.  In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us." Titus 2:6-8 NIV

"Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it." Proverbs 22:6

Let's pray:  Dear Lord Jesus, I pray for all the children in school now.  Please protect their hearts and minds from the enemy.  Please guide and give courage to their parents to stand up for You and for what is right according to Your Word--the Bible.  I say these things in Jesus' name. Amen.
