God's Grace

Grace is simply defined as unmerited favor. We deserve nothing from God. However, John 3:16 tells us "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.”

God’s grace is unmerited and undeserved. It cannot be earned, bought, inherited, or obtained in any manner. We obtain his grace by falling at the feet of Jesus asking in faith to be forgiven of the sins that we have committed, and then asking for God’s Ggace to come into our hearts and remove the SIN nature that causes us to sin.

Ephesians 2:1-5 says “And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)”

Romans 8:11 states, “But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.”

Titus 2:11-12 tells us “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men. Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world.”

God’s grace is available to “whosoever will”. It is free, it is abundant, and it will change your life. Try Jesus!

The Light of the World is Jesus

Genesis 1: 2-3 (KJV) states, “And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.”

Darkness differs from the mere absence of light.

In Exodus 10: 21-23 (KJV) we read, “And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness which may be felt. And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days: They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three days: but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.”

In our world darkness represents SIN. SIN is born into our hearts, from the fall of Adam and Eve in the garden. SIN separates us from God. Just as God and God alone has the power to speak, and create Light, only God can remove the darkness of SIN from our souls and lives.

John 1: 1-5 (KJV) states, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.”

St. John 8:12 (KJV) reads, “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”

Only through Christ can we get out of the darkness of SIN and into God's marvelous light. When God’s light comes in, darkness must flee. And with God’s light comes peace, contentment and Joy.

Try Jesus. He will bring Light to your world!

Fellowship

The dictionary states fellowship is a society of equals. Bound by a callling, higher than everyday values or desires and ambitions.

In Philippians 2 we read,If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:”

Ephesians 3:9, states, And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:”

Ephesians 3:16-19 further reads, “ That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God."

The fellowship of Christ and the fellowship of God’s people are all one and the same. The same spirit that makes us heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ, (Romans 8:17) is also that spirit which binds us together and causes us to love each another.

John 13:34 states, “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

Love of the Father, love of the brethren, fellowship with God’s Spirit, and fellowship with God’s people are so intertwined that they cannot be separated.

Because we are “Sanctified and set apart for the Masters use.”

The Cross

The icon of a cross adorns the steeple of churches worldwide; it is portrayed in works of art, worn on ecclesiastical clothing, stamped on Bibles and hymnals, and is the most recognized symbol of Christianity. Being nailed to a wooden cross was used to execute a criminal in a slow, degrading, and painful death. Why then do we hold up the cross as a sacred emblem of our faith? Because if you KNOW Christ, it is personal!

In the old rugged cross

Stained with blood so divine

A wondrous beauty I see

For twas on that old cross

Jesus suffered and died

To pardon and sanctify me

Hebrews 9:13–14 “For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?”

Be Strong in the Grace

The Apostle Paul instructed Timothy, his son in the faith, to “be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus”. Paul knew that Timothy would face many challenges and much persecution in his ministry for Jesus Christ. He encouraged Timothy to “endure hardness as a good soldier of Jesus Christ”, and to avoid entangling “himself with the affairs of this life”. Paul said that God had stood with him even when all men had forsaken him, and that God had delivered him from “the mouth of the lion” in his own ministry. He knew that Timothy would need God’s divine assistance to live a sanctified life and to succeed in his ministry.

The good news for us today is that we have a loving, Heavenly Father who wants to help his children. God invites us “to come boldly unto His Throne of Grace, so that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need”. This grace to help certainly applies to our salvation, but also applies to other needs that we encounter in this life after we are sanctified by the Holy Ghost. God instructs us to cast all of our care upon Him because he cares for us, loves us, and wants to bring his divine assistance into our everyday life situations.

Take your burdens and concerns to God’s throne today through prayer, knowing that God’s grace will be sufficient for you, and that His strength is made perfect in your weakness.
