YOUR STRENGTH COMES FROM GOD'S GRACE

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

Heb 13:8-9

8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. 9 So do not be attracted by strange, new ideas. Your strength comes from God's grace, not from rules about food, which don't help those who follow them.

NLT

Our text today reminds me of some women who claimed to have had revelations of heaven, they came presenting updated rules of Christianity; they have instructed several women in West Africa to shave their heads as one of the criteria for entering heaven, etc.

Remember today that your strength as a child of God comes from God’s grace and not from keeping any rules. People limit the work of God in their lives when they neglect the grace of God and think they can be made perfect (sanctified) by the old testament laws; bringing yourself under the old law only gives the satan(the accuser) an occasion to afflict you(see Gal 3:10).

Rules and regulations cannot help a man with an unregenerated heart; all they will do is to produce a hypocrite. Only God’s grace has the ability to change our minds and hearts into the image of Christ. This Grace works by faith that is coupled with total submission to the lordship of Christ.

Go into today knowing that you are not under laws but under the grace of God that produces genuine righteousness, peace and joy.

Prayer: Father I thank you for your grace you have made available in my life. I pray I will never limit your work in my life by neglecting this grace and living under laws. I pray this dear lord in Jesus name. Amen
