Topic: Grace found me.
TEXT: (Ephesians 2 vs. 1 -10)
God’s grace is powerful, because inside His grace we have remedies that substitutes human’s weakness. “For grace is given not because we have done good works, but in order that we may be able to do them” (Saint Augustine of Hippo). In our greatest loss grace keeps us as peculiar as God would want us to be. It is God’s grace that sets the uniqueness and standards of every stand we would claim to have. “You must pay for everything in this world one way and another.
There is nothing free except the grace of God, you cannot earn that ordeserve it” (Charles Partis). I think Max Lucado makes it explicit when he said, “When grace moves in… guilt moves out”. To stand on God’s grace amidst pressure is the greatest sense of belonging to God, our God is not in absence when expected. The attraction of God is built on the awareness we create around us, knowing that He is ever present, glorious and powerful. I must confess, I haven’t achieved anything in life by my might and power.
God’s grace is the capacity that puts us through what we can’t ordinarily achieve by ourselves. It is grace that keeps man aside to actualise God’s will and direction on Him and with Him. In the balance of God’s grace we take the place of honour and power without counting on our effort. Irrespective of who you are or what you have achieved in Christ Jesus, those are the very works of grace around our lives and destines. This could be one of John F MacArthur Jrn’s opinion when he said, “If am not showing grace… have I forgotten the grace I have been shown”.
God speaking of His opinion to us today said in verse 8 of today’s scripture saying, “For by grace are ye saved through Faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God”. God’s grace is not even deserved, it is the gift of God. It will make you graduate well. Yes, this grace will surely crown your year with honour. It is just God’s grace that will take you to your marital home this season, Amen! God bless you!
