“Grace will Carry Through”
Tuesday, May 7.
“By the grace of God, I am what I am” (1 Corinthians 15:16).
Grace is God’s unmerited favor towards us. It is God’s gift for us for eternal life. Without grace, we would all perish.
We need to understand that grace goes beyond our salvation. Grace becomes the spring from which all blessings flow from God. In other words, he who saves us by grace also brings us into the sphere of grace and endows us with all the blessings and favors that accompany this divine expression of love. In fact, this attitude of God was hinted at in the Old Testament: “It shall come to pass, when he crieth unto me, that I will hear: for I am gracious” (Exodus 22:27). Similar expressions are also found in Nehemiah 9:17 and Jonah 4:2. Paul wrote in Romans 5 that God abounds in grace. The word translated “abound” means to “exist in superabundance.” All of God’s dealings with his people are filtered through his marvelous grace! Thus we can be eternally grateful that God deals with us through grace not justice.
Let us acknowledged God’s grace.
