GRACE AND RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD

John 1:17 (NET)
For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came about through Jesus Christ.


Mr. Ade wanted to have his closest friendship with His child, but this could only happen when his child grows up. He was willing to wait.

Why is the law and grace put side by side in today’s Bible text? Because they came for the same purpose of making man walk in truth. But the law could not do this because man did not have the ability to keep it. The law ended up leaving man with the burden of guilt. This made him know he could never be righteous by his own strength.

Grace was given to help us walk in the righteousness of God. This righteousness is revealed as we walk from faith to faith, not from law to law. Because there are those who want to walk in grace, but fail because they try to do so with the old consciousness of law and sin.

What God wants in man is a relationship. One filled with mutual love. That is why I believe that before Adam and Eve sinned, God usually came to fellowship with them in the cool of the day (see Gen 3:8).

When you truly know and love God, you cannot but trust in Him, Love Him, and obey Him.

Using laws in your relationship with God only proves that you have not (grown to) truly know and love Him. Those who know and love God relate with Him in love, not with laws.

Believers who continue walking in the flesh do so because they are still spiritual babies who don’t care much about communing with the Father; they only care about what they can get.

Go into today knowing that the grace of God empowers you to walk in the love of God.
