UNDERSTANDING THE GRACE OF GOD PART 1




Rom 8:9-10
You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ. 10 But if Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive because of righteousness.
NIV

The key to spiritual progress is Christ in you. Because light automatically dispels darkness when you have Christ in you, every darkness of the sinful flesh is dispelled. How do we get to the point of having Christ in us, it is simple, we receive Him by faith and not by a trust in our works. It is easier to begin to walk with God on a template that is based on your works to achieve right standing with God, many times, like the Galatian Christians, we are usually tempted to do this, but you have to know that your walk with God is only because of what Jesus Christ did and not because of anything you can do. You cannot earn your way to heaven by observing certain rules; you can only depend in Christ in you to accomplish fellowship and right standing with God. If you have sinned against the lord, do not be deceived, you have trespassed and you should ask your heavenly father to forgive you just as you forgive those who have trespassed against you. Then trust Him that He has forgiven you already and continue to enjoy His sweet fellowship. You have to have this at the back of your mind that your righteousness is not based on your works but based on Christ.

Prayer: Dear heavenly father, thank you for giving me access to your throne through the blood of Jesus. I pray dear lord that you guide me into all truth and deliver me from being deceived again into legalism and thinking my access to you is through my works. Keep me in your truth dear lord from this day forth. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
