The Riches Of His Grace

Featured Post

That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. Eph. 2:7 KJV

There are exceeding, surpassing, exceptional and incomparable riches in the grace of God towards us. The Grace of God is the clear expression of God’s salvation plan and glorious tribute to His love to redeem us.

According to the Scriptures, “For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commended his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.” (Romans 5:6-11 KJV)

God’s outreach to us when we were yet without strength and were enemies of God but were reconciled to God by the death of his Son was the clear expression of God’s grace: surpassing, exceeding riches inherent to reconcile and reinstate us to God when we were in fact His enemies.

By this Grace, we obtained forgiveness of sins and restoration to the inheritance of God, to a nature and culture of God and His Kingdom. The Bible says, For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. (Titus 2:11-14 KJV). New life and lifestyle are products of God’s Grace in the life of the Believer, we do not only receive the forgiveness of sins by Grace, we are enabled to live a new and righteous life, teaching us to deny ungodliness and worldly lusts, to live a life well pleasing unto God. These are inclusive blessings of the exceeding riches of the grace of God.

Beloved, let us grow in the Grace of God, looking diligently unto this Grace lest anyone fail of it rather let us draw near with unfeigned heart understanding that the Grace of God is for our salvation; the Riches of Grace being exceeding and abounding through faith in Jesus Christ for we are saved by Grace through Faith and that not of ourselves but the gift of God.

Marvelous Light

Featured Post

For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light (Ps. 36:9 KJV)

The Light about and around God is a product of His Person and Nature; that nature being His Holiness. According to the Scripture, God, “…only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.” (1 Tim. 6:16 KJV). God is clothed with Light and this light is the glorious expression of His purity and Holiness that no Man has or can mimic or match. God is Holy.

About the purity of God, the Bible says something of note, “God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” (1 John 1:5-7 KJV). God is pure as Light. There is no shade or shadow of turning in God.

About the children of God, the Bible says, “ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light; Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.” (1 Peter 2:9-10 KJV). Notice Bible says God called us out of darkness into his marvellous light; this is a translation from evil and dark nature of sin into the gloriously purity of the Holy nature of God.

As we walk in the Light of His Personality, Nature and Character, we see (gain) Light also. This gained light is the individual revelation of the Truth about God (in whom we now live being in His Light or nature) each person gains walking in the Light of God. As we are illuminated by the Light of God, we become Light ourselves; Lighthouses of some sort that Jesus now called us Light of the World.

Jesus said, “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” (Matt. 5:14-16 KJV)

Beloved, we have been brought out of darkness into light; the glorious and pure holiness of God our Father that we in turn may contact and connect with His Light Nature and thereby become Light ourselves; the respective effectiveness of every believer as a Light is dependent of the intensity of Light each gains in the Light of God our Father as we walk in His Light. Have Light in yourselves.
