When I write like this the purpose is not trying to outdo anyone or compete. Also, I hate revelations for with them strange doctrines do image. I like sticking to scripture, precept upon precept. The thing about God is his word can never be reinvented no matter how much we preachers try to modify it. He’s the ancient of days!
Anyway, I would like to write about grace the way it’s described in the scriptures. There is point trying to reinvent its definition because grace also cannot be rewritten.
Grace is found free, that moment God looks on you and shows you favour or mercy, (Ex 33:19). When you’re founded in grace this grace makes you become “…different from any other people…” (Ex 33:16).
Now, when we talk about grace some people start to exclude themselves and say it’s not for them. But God made John 3:16 so common so that you also may understand that that grace is for you too. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
He so loved the world, (you also included) and gave….
“And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.” John 1:16
Here is how we received this grace; it was actually poured on us with out measure. “Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee for ever.” Psalm 45:2
Wow, the grace of God was actually poured upon you.
Listen to what God says in Jeremiah 31:2-4, “I will care for them as I did those who escaped from Egypt, to whom I showed my mercies in the wilderness, when Israel sought for rest.  For long ago the Lord had said to Israel: I have loved you, O my people, with an everlasting love; with loving-kindness I have drawn you to me.  I will rebuild your nation…“
Here are some points to remember from above;
- God cares for you, he has shown you his mercies
- God has drawn you to himself, to bless you forever
- God loves you with an everlasting love
- He also promised, to rebuild you!
I said when you’re founded in grace it makes you become “…different from any other people…”
“Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly.” (Proverbs 3:34).
“For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.” (Psalm 84:11).
I am filled with excitement and joy for you, and I am encouraged, especially when you purpose in your heart to stay close to this spirit of grace and of prayer.
Pray with me this prayer;
“Lord Jesus, I gratefully receive your gift of salvation and grace. I am ready to trust you as my Lord and Savior. I believe you are the Son of God who died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead on the third day. Thank you for bearing my sins and giving me the gift of eternal life. I believe your words are true. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus, and be my Savior. Amen.”
My friend, “…continue in the grace of God,” Acts 13:43.
