IT IS BY GRACE

Eph 2:8-9
God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can't take credit for this; it is a gift from God.[NLT]


When Sandra gave her life to Christ, She did not fully understand God’s grace. She was taught that grace is unmerited favor. And that it was because of this unmerited favor that she was saved. She did not know that grace also meant God’s empowerment toward to us be who he wants us to be.

Because of this, she found Christianity to be an unbearable struggle. She was told that she was to pray for up to an hour every day. It was impossible for her to pray for more than 15 minutes, and by then she would have repeated all her prayer points up to five times. Everything changed when she fully understood the grace of God. She saw strength to do things she never knew she could do.

It is not possible to be a Christian without the grace of God empowering you to be a Christian. This grace is administered to your spirit by the Holy Ghost who lives within you. The more filled with the Holy Spirit you are, the more of God’s grace you will experience. Those who walk in spiritual gifts also do this because of their measure of grace (see Rom 12:6)

It is by grace that we are being saved. It is by grace that we experience anything that is from God. Our works do not and can never qualify us for anything that is from God. Any work we do that is not inspired and empowered by God’s Grace is not recognized in heaven.

Go into today remembering that your walk with God is by His grace, and this grace is abundantly available for you through the Holy Spirit.

Prayer: Thank the Lord for saving you.
Ask the Holy Spirit to fill you from this moment (see Luke 11:13).
-Pas SD Abraham
