Who will I walk with?
The above topic is a poser to all believers who care to walk and be used by God. It is the grace of God that enables a believer to walk with God. Indeed, grace is practical and carries with it some evidences. The life of Abraham, demonstrates the evidence of grace in the life of a man. His life was evidently attractive, which was why his name became a household name. Before grace showed up, nobody could associate with him because his life had no attraction.
Before full manifestations of grace of God, there must be a total separation from the world. A complete turnaround from old path will enable grace to be conferred on a man. Surprisingly, Abraham lived in a time when the grace of God was very much limited. Abraham’s achievements at this brief time of grace made him blossom.
Conversely, present day believers are better than Abraham in terms of God’s grace. There is no comparison with regards to Abraham’s grace and the New Testament believers will suffice because of the redemptive work of Christ on the cross that brought full grace to New Testament believers.
In reality, many of us in Kingdom Power do not understand the God amid us. The understanding and knowledge of God amid us will invariably bring a drastic change in our lives. Ordinarily, our lives are supposed to portray the presence of God.
Backslidden in church started when believers lay one-sided emphasis on spiritual advancement to the neglect of the body. We must strike a balance in this respect! Attention should be given to our physical wellbeing as well as our spiritual lives. Abandonment of any of them will spell doom.
Our spiritual salvation is the same thing with our physical/body “salvation.” Our body needs maintenance, especially now that through the grace of God, we have leveled our valleys and crooked places. It is time to make physical wealth for the benefit of the Kingdom of God. This also heralds the time for all flesh to see the salvation of the Lord.
Grace is seeking for partnership. It wants to announce itself through believers. We must be ready to advertise it loudly before the whole world. Grace brought salvation and God’s salvation also touches the pockets and not just only the soul. Poverty has no place in the Church of Christ. Where the church imported poverty from remains a mystery because the wealth of the earth is handed over to believers.
Wherever grace is found, there must be glory; they go hand-in-hand. Grace is calling; be fast to answer the call today.
