God's Great Grace

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of Go: not of works, lest any man should boast” (Eph 2:8-10; KJV). Here we are told that we don’t earn salvation by our works, it is purely a gift by God’s grace that we receive freely by faith.

When Paul struggled with his thorn in the flesh, he pleaded with God to take it away but God replied: “My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness” (2 Cor 12:9). In other words, whatever the thorn was, God said his grace would get Paul through the difficulty.

God’s grace enables us to receive of his strength (power) for salvation and for every need that we have. The power word used here is Dunamis in the Greek; this is where we get the word dynamite.  We have God’s dynamite power by grace. The power that raised Christ from the dead is also that dynamite power and we contain it by God’s grace (Rom 8:11; Acts 1:8).

As we humble ourselves and come to the end of our own strength as Paul did, then God’s grace can get us through. If we think we can make it on our own and tough it out in our own strength then we are on our own and life gets hard. Let’s humble ourselves before God and seek his help; his grace is sufficient.

As Jesus Is, So Are We in Our World (1 John 4:17).

When Jesus taught in the synagogue in his home town of Nazareth, he quoted from Isaiah 61:1-2: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight  to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord” (Luke 4:18-19).

He announced that he had been sent to preach the good news of the Gospel; God’s free gift of forgiveness and salvation through Christ Jesus. He proclaimed or heralded (preached) that his ministry on this earth initiated the season or age of grace, when salvation was freely available to all men and women. We still live in that age.

In the quotation from Isaiah, Jesus also said that God sent him to heal the bruised and crushed, to free those who had been harassed and held captive by satan and to open the eyes of the blind (physically and spiritually).

Jesus did all of this in the power and anointing of the Holy Spirit who dwelt in him (Luke 4:18; John 1:32-33; Acts 10:38). Do you realize that you have the same Holy Spirit anointing on the inside of you to empower you to continue the ministry of Jesus (Mark 16:15-18)? “ As he is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17).

Jesus did say go (Matt 28:18-20)!
