Well Pleased

Gods SpiritBut when God, who had set me apart before I was born and called me through his grace, was pleased to reveal his Son to me, so that I might proclaim him among the Gentiles, I did not confer with any human being…Galatians 1:1-17  What happened to Paul was a spiritual transformation. We know this because of the letters he wrote. When we see people we have not seen over a period of time, we wonder about their spirit,  their way of thinking and responding to different situations. Inevitably their actions help us understand the person they’ve become. We are often surprised about how people change but God is never surprised. Like Paul, God is pleased to reveal himself to us through Christ because he already knows the person we are.  When we make the decision to follow God’s law and live into the New Commandment, someone else’s good housekeeping seal concerning our past, present or future isn’t necessary. Our actions in faith are already approved.

  1. Oh WOW, I love this! Such encouraging words, thank you! This is my first visit, via Martha Shaw–will be back when I get a few chores done and deserve a break!! God bless you abundantly–love, sis Caddo

    • Hi, got my house cleaned, and I’m back! I wanted to ask you about the images here–are they all copyrighted, or available for others to use? I specifically love the one about God’s Spirit confirming who we really are, and wonder if I might use it at CV? If not, that’s okay. Thanks again–love, sis Caddo

      • Thank you for your comments. The images are not copyrighted. Some are my own photographs and others are downloaded from various sights. I am very happy that you’ve enjoyed my post. Martha is a wonderful sister in Christ and look forward to reading your post as well.

      • So, is that a green light on using the one I mentioned, and do you know who I should attribute/credit it to?

  2. No bother at all. I often search free images but can’t remember what title I used to find this one. However the web site is in the bottom right hand corner (Godlife.com) and the site allows one time use for non-commercial purposes (I believe I read that right) I think it is probably okay for you to use as well. This image was from an old site.

    • Thank you so very much! I’ll check Godlife.com (I must have missed that, as my vision is less than sharp these days!). And I forgot to mention yesterday, that I was raised in the Episcopal Church as a child–just a point of connection. God bless you–love, Caddo
