God of Grace
Text: 1Pet 5:10 “But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, establish, strengthen, settle you.”
Grace is the free and unmerited favor or beneficence of God. Grace is the description of the character of God, which is displayed by His gifts to men. God is a God of grace and He desires to make this known not only to men but also to the angelic hosts. He showeth mercy without asking for anything in return.
In 2Cor 12:9A says “ My grace is sufficient for thee, for my strength is made perfect in weakness”.
Grace is given at special times of need, especially during adversity or suffering. Grace is manifested in a variety of ways.
There is no life without challenges but the grace of God is sufficient to sustain us. There are some things that overcome challenges in the life of man which includes Favor, Mercy and Grace. Grace overcomes battles without inflicting suffering on you. Even while suffering for the sin and mistakes we have committed in the past, God’s grace is sufficient to make us overcome all.
Hebrew 4:16 says “Let us therefore draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and may find grace to help in time of need”.
Grace seeks us and saves us, Grace keeps us secure. Grace enables us to serve and to endure the tests and trials of life.
Grace will bring about our sanctification in this life and will ultimately bring us to glory. From beginning to end we are the objects of divine grace.
Every ounce of grace that enables faith and empowers our obedience comes to us through the finished work of Jesus Christ.
Rom 6:1-2A says “ What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound. God forbid!”.
There are some things that can hinder grace in our lives, which includes. Sin, Family battle, Lust of the flesh and Kingdom of darkness.
I beseech us brethren let us walk in the way of the Lord for us to enjoy His sufficient grace.
The things needed to enjoy the grace of God includes the following:*Come closer to God. *Accept Christ as your Lord Saviour. *Serve God. *Seek first the kingdom of God. *Ask for God’s power.
I pray that the Grace of God will be sufficient for us in all areas of our lives in Jesus name.
