CAC LIVING WATER DAILY DEVOTIONAL JANUARY 7, 2022 (THE GRACE OF THE LORD)
TOPIC: THE GRACE OF THE LORD
*READ: 2 Corinthians 13:14*
*MEMORISE: The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen (2 Corinthians 13:14).*
Grace’ is a word that encompasses God’s undiluted love towards mankind. It carries the overall charisma of the unmerited favour of God from creation to the everlasting kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ.
This love and favour is not what any man has worked out or worked for.
It is never man’s initiative; it is a divinely arranged package to restore man to God, after the Fall. The grace of God is the only mission from above that had an underground plan, even before the fulfilment became feasible.
The grace of God is for all, but is not accepted by all. There is grace to overcome all forms of temptations, but that is not forced on anyone by God; it is by choice, not by force.
You are sent by God to pass through this world and there is the readymade grace to sustain you throughout the journey here on earth. The question is, do you see any need for this grace? Have you discovered, and activated this grace?
There are things you must know, if the grace would be active in, or for you.
You must enter into, and maintain a cordial personal relationship with Christ, the Author of the grace. Having known that grace is the expression of God’s love to mankind, this love was not expressed through the angel, or any prophet, but through the only begotten Son of God, Jesus Christ.
He died on the cross to take our sin and weakness upon Himself, so that we may have access to His supernatural strength and righteousness *(Isa. 53:1ff; cf. 2 Cor. 12:6-9).* Are you ready to accept the love expression of God through Jesus, today?
There are innumerable blessings attached to the grace, physically and spiritually, for he who chooses to accept the grace *(cf. 2 Cor. 8:9).
In addition, these blessings and riches are eternal in nature. You will enjoy more of God’s love if you give your totality to Jesus Christ. Make your choice, now, and begin to enjoy the divine grace.
1. O Lord, let Your grace speak for me every moment of my life.
2. Lord Jesus, help me not to misappropriate Your grace and take Your liberty for granted.
3. Pray for CAC Babalola Region, our father in the Lord, the Superintendent, and its officers at the various levels, as led by the Spirit of God.
