God’s Grace; The Message of Love!

Grace is God’s unmerited favor that is available to sinners for salvation; it is available to the redeemed for their victorious living. Too often we neglect the grace God has made available for us daily.

Grace is what the woman caught in the ‘very act’ experienced; it’s what Peter, after denying Christ, experienced. It’s what Paul experienced on Damascus road; it’s what Daniel experienced in the lion’s den and the Hebrew boys in the fiery furnace.

Grace is God’s message of love to the undeserving people. Only because of Christ is God’s grace available to us.

Grace is:

1. A product of Christ Himself.

John 1:17For the law was given through Moses, but God’s unfailing love and faithfulness came through Jesus Christ.

2. Manifested in Christ’s self-sacrifice.

II Corinthians 8:9You know the generous grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, so that by His poverty He could make you rich.

3. Sufficient for all human needs.

II Corinthians 12:9Each time He said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.

4. Christ’s gift to us.

Ephesians 4:7However, He has given each one of us a special gift through the generosity of Christ.

5. Bestowed upon sinful men.

I Timothy 1:12-14I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength to do His work. He considered me trustworthy and appointed me to serve Him, 13 even though I used to blaspheme the name of Christ. In my insolence, I persecuted His people. But God had mercy on me because I did it in ignorance and unbelief. 14 Oh, how generous and gracious our Lord was! He filled me with the faith and love that come from Christ Jesus.

6. Source of power.

II Timothy 2:1Timothy, my dear son, be strong through the grace that God gives you in Christ Jesus.

7. With us all.

Revelation 22:21May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s holy people.

Friend, God’s amazing grace is wonderful beyond our ability to comprehend yet in His grace He enables us to experience it day in our lives. Be aware today, document the grace God apportions to you and you will see best at the point you need most.

Remember His strength is seen best in your weakness.

Peace and blessings!

    Lord God, please give me a large portion of your grace today. Show me how to extend it to others, especially when I least want to do so. Let me reflect You always. In the name of Jesus Christ, Your Son, Amen.

    Without God’s grace we would be dead in our own sin, but thank God for grace and our redeemer, Jesus. I pray God pours out His grace to me today and everyday.

    I need God’s grace to show up today in a situation I’ve been praying about. I was in agreement with someone for 40 days for my prayer to be answered and today is 40 days I’ve been standing in faith in agreement and I trust his word that went to a more texting brother in agreement that he’s in the mist, and that his word does not come back void!!
