Apply

God’s Kingdom isn’t ‘first come, first serve’ it’s ‘all come, all serve’.  He invites.  We respond.  No matter when in the overall sense of time, we are given the same benefits.  We are treated as royally as the Apostle Paul.  We have the same exact gift as the prophet Isaiah.  Knowing this, Jesus calls us accept our gift and serve for whatever time we have. 

Yield

Lord, I will work till You return out of gratitude for Your great gift of salvation.  

Extra Discovery

Read Romans 9:15-16 to get another picture of God’s mercy and grace. 

Revelation

You don’t get just ‘a little bit Mended’ when Jesus saves you.  He treats you holistically and His blood applies to your life completely.  No matter the time, no matter the season, God’s grace is applied to you the same as it is to any other person Marred by the horrific consequences of sin.  Walk in the beautiful freedom of that truth today.  You have the whole thing!
