Not every follower is your “friend.”Birds of a Not So Feather — David’s Daily Dose
From the fullness of God’s grace, you have received one blessings after another. Stop for a moment, friend, and ponder the astonishing gift of salvation, by grace through faith in Christ. Because it’s entirely a gift, not as a result of works, this salvation is secure. Your part is just to receive what He has accomplished for you on the cross, believing with the faith that was given you. This undeserved love and favor is yours forever. Jesus’ grace has infinite value!
Multiple blessings flow out of grace because of its extraordinary fullness. Guilt feelings melt away in the warm Light of His forgiveness. Your identity as a child of God gives your life meaning and purpose. Relationships with other people improve as you relate to them with love and forgiveness.
The best response to His bountiful grace is a heart overflowing with gratitude. Take time each day to think about and thank God for his blessings in your life. This protects your heart from weeds of ingratitude that spring up so easily. Be thankful!
Grace and Peace to You My Friends

Philippians 3:12-4:23 ‘Christ Jesus has made me His own’(3:12). In Paul`s words, we hear an echo of Jesus` words, ‘You did not choose Me… I chose you’(John 15:16). Christ has claimed us for Himself.
