GOD’S GRACE TOWARDS YOU

image

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

Rom 5:1-2

Therefore, since we have been made right in God's sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. 2 Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God's glory.

NLT

The returning fresh year students could not meet up with the registration deadline because they couldn’t pay for great damages they caused to the expensive school facilities when a party went wild and turned into a fight between frat groups. They were going to lose their admission into the prestigious college if they failed to pay for the damages. After a while, the college president gave all the students a two weeks period of grace, anyone who registered within the period would not have to pay a dime because Cobi Brain, the son of the city billionaire had written off the bill, many students didn’t know this. Many students were saved from imminent expulsion because they believed the report and went to be registered. Unfortunately, there were some who didn’t register during the period of grace.

This short story may illustrate how we have received grace and can now access God’s presence not because of our works but because of what Jesus has done for us; He paid a debt that we could never pay; he paid the debt for sin.

Just as the students who were registered will now have to behave themselves in accordance with the rules of the university, we are expected to walk in a manner that is worthy of our calling(see Ephesians 4:1) as children of God.

Go into today knowing that Jesus is the one who grants you access into the kingdom of God; you are not the one who does this and your works can not do this for you. You can now access the throne of God to get help and grace for your time of need.

Prayer: Dear heavenly father. I thank you for your word today. I pray you give me grace that I may walk worthy of the calling to which I have been called in you. I thank you lord for granting me grace. In Jesus name. Amen
