Grace and truth

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

God told Adam that if he ate from the tree of the knowledge of God good and evil, he would surely die(Gen 2:17). When Adam ate the fruit, he lost the life of God. He no longer could participate in the divine nature, and was now subject to death and corruption. We his descendants inherited this too.

Our spirits needed to be regenerated so we could receive the grace of God to empower us to walk in God’s nature (Ezekiel 36:26). The word ‘born again’ is not a symbolic expression, it is something that happens literally to the spirit of everyone who believes in Christ. The new birth is not a product of human will but of God’s will (see John 1:13).

This new birth is because of God’s unmerited favor. He gives us new spirits that He can indwell and supply the grace to help us walk in His divine nature. We need this grace because we have bodies of flesh that hinder us from this nature.

The law of God that came through Moses was to help man walk in God's truth (the reality and realm of God), but it failed because man was not able to obey it from his (corrupted) heart. Grace and truth has come through Jesus. Grace empowers us to walk in truth (God’s reality).

Go into today trusting in the grace of God to empower you walk more and more in the divine nature.

Thank the Lord for His love that makes you a partaker of His divine nature (2 Pet 1:2-4).
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
