A while back we went to visit a local farmer. We didn’t have a lot of money left as it was nearing the end of the budget, but I really wanted to buy some fresh produce. We went to the first farmer and ended up spending a while talking to him about farming and looking at his crops and irrigation system.
At the end he sold us some herbs at a reduced price and gave us a number to someone who was selling watermelon.
We went to the wrong place searching for this farmer with watermelon and ended up meeting another farmer. He took us to his farm and gave me a huge set of herbs.
At the end, we ended up with so much fresh produce, new knowledge about farming and new contacts.
Amazing how God constantly reminds us of His love to us each day by sending us these blessings. Some blessings seems so small. Some are miraculous. But, all are tokens of the agape, never-ending, completely selfless love of God towards us sinners.
Oh thank You Lord for your uneding love for a sinner such as I!
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

The theme of salvation is such a wonderful theme because it shows us how much God loves us and all that He did to save us.
When Adam sinned, it wasn’t just disobeying God. Really it was saying to God, “I have chosen another way than Your way.”
God’s way is the way of life and so choosing another way was to chose to be separated from the Source of life.
And so that separation that came when Adam sinned, meant that Adam was eternally separated from God.
The separation that sin caused was an eternal one .
The verdict was clear. Adam had sinned and forfeited life and so he must and would die.
I can only imagine how Satan must whave exulted when Adam sinned. He thought that the case was closed and man was now his and there was nothing that could be done.
BUT…Jesus stepped in man’s place.
Jesus said, “Let the punishment fall on me that man might go free if they choose to accept all that He had done for them.”
What victory! Oh the love of God!
