He given by God children of grace
Letter to the Hebrews Two v- 10 thru 13
10 For it was fitting that He, for whom and through whom all things exist, in bringing many children to glory, should make the leader to their Salvation perfect through suffering. 11 He who consecrates and those who are being consecrated all have one origin. Therefore, He is not ashamed to call them “brothers,” 12 saying: “I will proclaim your name to my brothers, in the midst of the assembly I will praise you”; 13 and again: “I will put my trust in Him”; and again: “Behold, I and the children God has given me.”
The catechist has much to say about grace and justification. It is by grace that we are saved yet to understand this one must listen to the Spirit of Truth relaying as Paul often did the beauty of living Redeemed. Once you begin to practice Jesus in everything you do, your prayer life includes the ability to hear Jesus amongst the assembly as the Word of God is proclaimed that you embrace as absolute Truth; Father, Son and Holy Ghost whispering the duties of charity protruding love, faith and hope of His mercy by grace. The Catechists paragraphs below are proclaimed as this surrender to Truth
Catechists paragraph 1987 The grace of the Holy Spirit has the power to justify us, that is, to cleanse us from our sins and to communicate to us “the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ” and through Baptism:
But if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him. For we know that Christ being raised from the dead will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him. The death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God. So you also must consider yourselves as dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.
Catechists paragraph 1988 Through the power of the Holy Spirit we take part in Christ’s Passion by dying to sin, and in his Resurrection by being born to a new life; we are members of his Body which is the Church, branches grafted onto the vine which is himself:
[God] gave himself to us through his Spirit. By the participation of the Spirit, we become communicants in the divine nature. . . . For this reason, those in whom the Spirit dwells are divinized.
Catechists paragraph 1989 The first work of the grace of the Holy Spirit is conversion, effecting justification in accordance with Jesus’ proclamation at the beginning of the Gospel: “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”38 Moved by grace, man turns toward God and away from sin, thus accepting forgiveness and righteousness from on high. “Justification is not only the remission of sins, but also the sanctification and renewal of the interior man.
Catechists paragraph 1990 Justification detaches man from sin which contradicts the love of God, and purifies his heart of sin. Justification follows upon God’s merciful initiative of offering forgiveness. It reconciles man with God. It frees from the enslavement to sin, and it heals.
Catechists paragraph 1991 Justification is at the same time the acceptance of God’s righteousness through faith in Jesus Christ. Righteousness (or “justice”) here means the rectitude of divine love. With justification, faith, hope, and charity are poured into our hearts, and obedience to the divine will is granted us.
May we all embrace the beauty of grace that allows us freedom to live in peace. Amen.
Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day. Lord give them peace in their last breath. Silence for the prayers of others. Holy Spirit and St Joseph CC & Holy Mother Church. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

**He given by God children of grace**
Fitting was it of He
Existing things all would agree
Glory brought to children of He
Suffering perfect Salvation leader does agree
Origin one those consecrated to His faith
Brothers He calls ashamed none to their face
Assembly midst He calls each by praising My name
Him trust again and again He given by God children of grace the same
