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