Grace Teaches Us 1

Titus 2:11-13

For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ [NIV]

Harry got himself a new phone. He was eager to get it out of the pack and begin to use. While unwrapping the device, he saw a booklet on which was written 'How To Enjoy Your New Device'. He threw it aside and proceeded to fix the device to the best of his understanding and began to use it.

Some months after, Harry met Ted who had been using the same phone as his. He noticed Ted was doing far more with the device than Harry had thought possible. Ted was enjoying his device far more than Harry because he had taken time to study the Manual.

It is God's plan that in the New Covenant, the weakest among us would be as strong as David (Zech 12:8) and the least of us greater than Elijah (Mat. 11:11-15). Potentially this is true, but we must learn to walk in that reality.

The Grace of God is the difference between the follower of God in the New Testament and the follower of God in the Old. The Grace of God is the reason why a believer in Christ should find following God more enjoyable than the best of the Old Testament followers did. To do this we must pay attention to the teachings of Grace. There is a better way to overcome flesh than your self will if we learn from Grace.

Go into today, knowing that your walk with God can be far better than it is now.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, teach me Your ways. I want to walk better with You. Amen.
