Two weeks ago I introduced to you, my father-in-law, Dr. Marion Wojnarowski, who has been serving the Lord in ministry for over 48 years. His many areas of service have included pastoring, evangelism, teaching, mission work, and in recent years,he has served as the chaplain for a retirement center. While serving in these capacities, many a sermon and newsletter article has been pounded out on my Dad-in-love’s old typewriter. Since I couldn’t convince him to begin blogging on his own, I really wanted to honor his love legacy to the Lord. Enjoy his words and have a beautiful Sunday!
An Abundance of Sweets and Scents
With Easter quickly approaching, the time of sending flowers and eating yummy chocolates is upon us. The florists and candy companies will flourish in profits galore. April is a month of ABUNDANCE.
We can be sure that the ABUNDANCE of the Lord is everlasting towards us, who can, by His grace, become His saints.
He gives us abundant grace-
And the Grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. I Tim 1:15
For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many dredound to the glory of God. (Redound means to overflow or to flood.) II Cor. 4:15
He gives us abundant mercy-
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to His abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. I Peter 1:3
I don’t want justice for my sins, but I do want mercy and His grace!
He gives us abundant answers to our prayers-
Now unto Him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us. Eph. 3:20
To know that our Heavenly Father hears us through the Intercessional-Mediatorship-Ministry of our Lord Jesus, for every prayer-petitioning child of God; what an abundant blessing He has bestowed upon all believers!
He gives us abundant pardon-
Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:7
Isn’t that what we need all year long for the un-Christianlike behavior we commit so many times during the year?
He gives us abundant continual salvation-
Not by his works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; which He shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior. Titus 3:5-6
A daily spiritual renewal of being eternally saved, bound for Heaven by His grace, mercy and pardon! Amen!
The abundant sweets and scents from the Lord are everlasting-
How sweet are Thy words unto my taste! Yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Psalm 119:103
For these abundant gifts from the Lord, we should be so thankful each and every day of our lives.
By Him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is the fruit of our lips giving thanks to His Name. Heb. 13:15
