    PSALM 4:2 o you sons of men how long will you turn MY glory into shame how long will you love vanity and seek after leasing --SELAH-- ECCLESIASTES 8:4 where the word of a king is there is power and who may say unto him what doest thou PSALM 29:1 give unto THE LORD o you mighty give unto THE LORD glory and strength --29:4-- the voice of THE LORD is powerful the voice of THE LORD is full of majesty

    To be enlarged is to understand our purpose, and not dwell in vanity and leasing,which is empty of purpose and temporary.God is glorified in his people,as they are living/offering sacrifices in trusting him.Gladness in the heart is worth more than comforts of wealth.Our God and our bond to him is invisible to the world,we know he hears and our desire is to see his light/instruction for our lives.

    Your statement: "We cannot have mercy if God is indebted to our deeds." Remarkably astute. That is an excellent statement regarding works and God's mercy. Both James and Ephesians speak on this matter, but Titus 3 ties both James and Ephesians together so perfectly.

    Thank you for sharing to us of God's working in your life. Marshal Albritton
