7 years ago Evangelical Ministry 0
Are you aware of the grace of God made available to you? Can you specifically indentify this grace as operational in your life? Is it real to you? Truly, the grace of God has been made available to all men. In his first letter to Corinthians, Apostle Paul declared, ‘But by the grace of God I am what I am…’ (1 Cor.15:9). Is it so with you?
Below are various ways by which God expresses His grace toward the humanity.
1). Conviction of Sin – Zacchariah 12:10.
It is the grace of God that makes a sinner to realize the gravity of his actions and to seek mercy. In the verse of the bible mentioned above, God said that He will pour the Spirit of grace and supplication on the inhabitants of Jerusalem which will make them to look on whom they have pierced. May God’s grace make you sorrowful for all your sin; and may it lead you to true repentance. Amen.
2). Salvation and God’s people – Ephesians 1:7
We were saved from our sin and made sons and daughters of God through the grace of God. In Ephesians 2:8-9, Saint Paul said that it did not come to us through our works but rather it was a gift of God.
3). Righteous Living – Titus 2:11-12
The grace of God brings the flavor of righteousness to your life. Your life yearns for God always and your spirit detests every ungodly acts. ‘Our righteousness is of the Lord’ (Isaiah 54:17).
4). Success and True Prosperity – 2 Corinthians 8:9
God has opened His door of heavenly blessings to us who believed. The ground which He once cursed when Adam sinned has He now blessed through our Lord Jesus Christ. This Jesus, though rich, became poor that we may become rich in God. This entails both spiritual and material blessings. May you enjoy real success and greatness in all your endeavors.
5). Overcoming Challenges – Zacchariah 4:6-7
Through grace we surmount every difficulty and tribulations of life. The bible says, ‘It is not by power nor by might, but by the Spirit of God.’ So face your fears for grace to overcome is available. Remember that ‘we are more than conquerors through Christ who strengthens us’ (Romans 8:37).
6). Favour – Luke 1:26-28
Grace singles one out amount the multitude for special blessing. We may not be the most talented, skilled, educated or intelligent; but grace brings men into favour both with God and men. May this grace work for you.
7). True Service – Ephesians 3:7-8
Through God’s grace we are called to serve in His vineyard and this grace helps us render true and sincere service to God in our various vocations. Be devoted to your calling, and serve God faithfully by His grace. Amen
May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us always. Amen.
