The Power Of Grace

‘where sin increased, grace increased all the more, so that, just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.’ (Romans 5:20-21)

Beloved, may the superabounding grace of our Lord be with you today.

Where there is sin, let there be righteousness.

Where there is lack, let there be abundance.

Where there is weakness, let there be strength.

Where there is strife, let there be peace.

Where there is confusion, let there be clarity.

Where there is sickness, let there be health.

Where there is death, let there be life.

Where there is darkness, let there be light.

Be Greatly Blessed!

 
Prayer:

Heavenly Father, my gracious God, thank you for drawing me to you by your grace when I was lost in my sin.

Help me to show kindness and grace to those who’re still hurting.

Let your superabounding grace flow through me to touch and bless those around me.

Let it be so.

In Jesus’ Mighty Name,

AMEN!

Additional Thoughts:

When the wayward son returned to his father, Not only was he forgiven, but he was honoured for his decision to return home.

‘But the father said to his slaves, “Quickly, bring out a robe — the best one — and put it on him; put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet.”‘ (Luke 15:22)

There was a great feast and joyous celebration in the father’s home because the one who was lost had been found.

That is the power of grace. The power of God’s grace. He receives us back to Him, forgives us and then celebrates our return.

When we ask for forgiveness, God doesn’t pull out a list and say, “But I’ve already forgiven this person for that a hundred times.” No, he doesn’t remember our sins. The psalmist says in Psalm 103:12, ‘As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.’

And then He celebrates our return and repentance. We are told in Zephaniah 3:17 that God rejoices over us with gladness and exults over us with loud singing. Amazing grace.

Can we imagine how astounded the young son would have been when his father responded to his return like that? He was expecting to return and be treated like a hired hand. Instead, he is given a robe and a ring, just like royalty.

And so are we treated the same way.

Have we been in a similar place? Perhaps made foolish choices, hurt others and behaved selfishly.

Yet the grace of God has washed over us in ways that we don’t deserve. Just as we have received amazing grace from our Heavenly Father, let us be people that offer the same to others.

We may have been hurt by cutting remarks. Offer grace.

We may have been slighted or made to look foolish. Offer grace.

We may have been forgotten or ignored. Offer grace.

Can we do this in our own strength? Definitely not.

The God who had been ignored, rebuked, persecuted and mocked offered grace.

He will help us do the same to our offenders. Seek the God of grace in our time of need.

Grace drew us to Christ and our gracious actions will draw others.

Let’s overwhelm them with the power of His grace.
