GRACE – GOD’S CALL, NOT MAN’S

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Tuesday, May 22, 2018

Praise God!

📜Psalm 84:11 “For the Lord, God is a Sun and Shield: the Lord will give Grace and Glory: no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly.”

🔥Grace is only found in the sight of the Lord. We’re not the ones to ‘grace’ ourselves. “But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.” Genesis 6:8

🤲🏽Therefore if grace is found in the Lord’s sight, then we should labor to be in God’s presence at all times, even when we feel like we have gone contrary to His will. That’s why it is defined as undeserved favor.

✝Christ died, that we may approach the throne of grace boldly (Hebrews 4:16). Here’s where ALL our needs are met. Therefore do not frustrate the grace by keeping away from the Throne (God’s presence) due to one reason or the other. Remember if your ‘righteousness’ was the gauge, then you’d be disqualified since this is like filthy rags before the Lord. Isaiah 64:6

✝Grace is synonymous to Jesus Christ (Philemon 1:24). We’re justified by God’s Grace (Titus 3:7).

👉🏾So then, when the Bible tells us where sin abounded, Grace did much more abound (Romans 5:20), The Word is referring to the sin that has been brought to the foot of the Cross by the repentant man and not the sinner continuing in his/her sinful ways. (Romans 6:6).

💡Grace is a prerequisite for doing every good work. The more you abound in Grace, the more you abound in every good work. (2 Corinthians 9:8). You abound in Grace by choosing to remain in the Lord’s eyes night and day.

👎🏾Frustrating Grace means departing from the Cross and expecting It to work for you. © _anneobure_

🙏🏾Father, thank You for Your Grace. Help me to remain at the foot of the Cross, where divine exchange takes place, in Jesus Name and by the Power of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

🙏🏾SHALOM🙏🏾

THE GRACE, THE LOVE, THE FELLOWSHIP

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Monday, May 7, 2018

📜2 Corinthians 13:14 “The Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Love of God and the Fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.”

🙏🏾The Grace – unmerited favor; undeserved gift; unearned kindness, coming from an All-Perfect God to an all-fallen man. This was done through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. (Read Ephesians 2:8-10)

🙏🏾The Love – the reason behind The Grace; this is the explanation to why an All-Perfect God would give His One and only Son to close the gap created by an all-fallen man. (Read John 3:16)

🙏🏾The Fellowship – this is what was birthed when the Love permitted the Grace. We’re now able to walk and talk with God directly. The Holy Spirit reveals Christ in our hearts. We’re in constant communion with our Father! (Read John 16:12-14)

💡The Grace=Jesus Christ
💡The Love=God
💡The Fellowship=The Holy Spirit

💭God’s Grace is unselective – Joel Osteen

🙏🏾Father, I receive Your Grace (Jesus Christ) through Your Love, that I may fellowship with You through The Holy Spirit now and forever more, Amen🙏🏾

🙏🏾SHALOM🙏🏾

Does God Respect Man?

By God’s Grace (kindness) and Mercy (compassion), we are respected. What do I mean by this? Sin came into the world through man and this caused God to turn His face away from man. Man was cursed (due to sin) and could only be delivered through the Sinless Sacrifice, causing God to give His only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die in the place of man, and glory be to God, death could not keep its hold on Him! (Acts 2:24). This is indeed God’s Grace and Mercy.

What does respect mean?

Let’s break this word into two:

  1. Re – a prefix meaning ‘again and again’, repetition.
  2. Spect – to see; to observe; to look; to watch over.

Therefore, respect means:

  • To see someone in a positive Light
  • To show concern; to show pity
  • To turn back towards; to return
  • To help; to extend favor (to favorably look upon)

Why did God do this? Do we really deserve respect? The answer is no. Respect is the undeserved ‘favor’ that is portrayed by the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. The two words can be used interchangeably.

This is the main reason why destruction CANNOT and will not come upon us.

On A Light Note: Now I understand what scholars mean when they say, ‘Respect is earned and is also two – way’ As I respect God, He in turn respects (favors) me.

Prayer: Lord, thank You for Your Grace and Mercy over my life that has caused You to respect (favor) me. Thank You for seeing me in a positive Light. Thank You for showing concern over my life. Thank You for returning; turning back towards me. Thank You for helping me. Because of this, destruction shall NEVER come my way in Jesus Name, Amen!

Music Corner:

You ask, ‘What does it take to be respected (favored) by the Lord? All you need to do is to say this simple prayer: “Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Now I surrender. Thank You for saving me!
In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.”

Salvation is A glorious epilogue to man’s existence! Being Swallowed up by the Love of Christ, the Word of God being my Favorite Place; I am no longer Faceless! Not a Foreigner in the Kingdom of God, but a Child of God!
