“But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.” – 1 Corinthians 15:10
We thank the LORD for reminding us last month of His garment of glory He has clothed us with, my prayer is that this garment will remain permanently on us till he comes for us in glory. This month the LORD is calling us to remembrance and walk in His unlimited supply of GRACE as reflected in our text 1 Corinthians 15:10 and many other passages in the bible. According to the dictionary Grace is defined as “the unlimited divine assistance given human for their regeneration or sanctification”. It can be said to be the most important concept in the Bible, Christianity, and the world. It is most clearly expressed in the promises of God revealed in Scripture and embodied in Jesus Christ. Grace is the love of God shown to the unlovely; the peace of God given to the restless; the unmerited favor of God. For by grace are ye saved . . . Ephesians 2:8.
What is intriguing here is that to walk in this Grace we need his grace in the first place so that means nothing in this life can be without Him”…without me ye can do nothing”. John 15:5 He first loved us and even died for our sin thereby making us free. Our part is just to have continuous faith in Him. Thank God Grace cannot be bought, many would have not been able to afford it, it is a free gift of almighty God to all needy mankind.
This grace of God is a reality which can be felt. Thousands have tried, tested, and proved that it is more than a cold creed, a docile doctrine, or a tedious theory. The grace of God has been tested in the lab of human experience, and has been found to be more than an equal for the problems and sins of humanity. Why not embrace this Grace?
If we will only read and keep this truth in our hearts, God’s Holy Word, the Bible contains all that we need to successfully walk with Him, gain total freedom and have eternal life. The Bible tells us who God is and what He is like. John 14:6
God’s grace is all around us. He wants us to live forever and be happy, but we have a choice to make. We can accept some of His grace during this “stay of execution” period and live here on earth for a few years, or we can accept ALL His grace and live forever with Him!
Accept the grace that God offers through Jesus, and live!
