God is great, God is good and we thank Him for our food. By His hand we all are fed, give us Lord our daily bread-Amen. NO! that is not the grace I’m talking about today. I’m talking about the grace that saved you, healed you, delivered you, empowered you, regulated your mind, ministered to your broken heart, made provision for your lack, humbled you, chastened you, loved you, positioned you, restored you, taught you and anything else you needed. God’s grace is amazing! You don’t work to get it and your money can’t buy it because it is the gift of God. You simply receive it by faith!
4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, 5 even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— 6 and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,7 so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
His grace was available to us even while we were in our sin. His grace cleansed and raised us to be seated with Him in heavenly places. Oh how I love Jesus! It is because of Him grace has been extended to us. Where would we be if it wasn’t for His grace? I really can think of a few places, none of them His will for my life. Grace has us categorized as His workmanship. Because of Jesus Christ we have been reconciled back to God and we are purposed for works He requires us to walk in.
No more fear, laziness, lack of understanding with little to no compassion and love. Grace has been given for something greater than ourselves. We must give what has been freely given to us…the richness of His mercy, great love, salvation, authority, wisdom, knowledge and revelation.
