THE WONDERS OF GRACE
Main Text: “I am unworthy of all the kindness and faithfulness you have shown your servant…. (Gen. 32:10)
Sub Text:“…..while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Rom. 5:8)
Our main text for today is one of the foremost outpouring of God’s wondrous grace. Jacob realized that everything he brought to God had been ruined by sin. He thought of himself as a man undeserving of God’s Grace, but his hope lay not in his worth, but in the promise of God to look with favour on those who throw themselves on His Mercy and depend on His grace.
Jesus again demonstrated this when a guilty woman was brought before Him and her immorality exposed. The crowd did more than just watch, but called for condemnation and possible execution, but Jesus responded to her failure with compassion and undeserved forgiveness.
These illustrations of His grace is a connotation of His unending love. The bible says that while we were still sinners Christ died for us. What God offered to and achieved in us through His wonderful and amazing grace is completely outside the ability of man to accomplish.
It is through grace that salvation is achieved. This means that Christianity in its entirety is anchored on grace, and it is the wondrous grace of God that makes Christianity stand out as a religion.
Thus, as Christians, all achievements and victories are got through grace. It is grace that carries us through our life’s struggles. It is grace that enables a Christian to live a righteous life and every victory in spiritual warfare is achieved through the grace of God. This is why Apostle Paul reminds us that all is by His grace, not by our own works, lest none boast (Eph. 2:8-9).
Sequel to this then, all that is expected of us is to accept by faith what the Lord offers us. He alone deserves our thanks and praises for the grace He has lavished on us. Our achievements, success or greatness are not therefore rooted in ourselves. They are the products of God’s matchless grace, upon which we are eternally dependent.
GOD’S GRACE IS INFINITE LOVE EXPRESSING ITSELF THROUGH INFINITE GOODNESS
Prayer: May I not take the grace of God for granted in Jesus name
