31 Days: Grace

My grace is sufficient for you…

31 Days: One Word - Grace

The Greek word for grace can be defined as favor. Favor means good will, generosity, mercy, approval. When God gives His grace to us, He extends to us His generosity, His mercy, His good will, His favor. He showers down on His children all the might and favor of a loving Father. How can this approval and generosity, this mercy and favor NOT be sufficient for us?

Grace is so much more than a theological truth to be debated and dissected. It is the lifeblood of our faith; the very essence of our relationship with God!

There are so many verses about His grace, and they all bless my heart and fill me with such gratitude and joy. I think today, I’m just going to share some of them and let His Word speak for Him in this post.

And with great power the apostles were giving testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and abundant grace was upon them all. Act 4:3

And Stephen, full of grace and power, was performing great wonders and signs among the people. Acts 6:8

But the free gift is not like the transgression. For if by the transgression of the one the many died, much more did the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abound to the many. Rom 5:15

And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed…2 Cor 9:8

…so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. Eph 2:7

… (the Lord) who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was granted us in Christ Jesus from all eternity… 1 Tim 1:9

…so that being justified by His grace we would be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Tit 3:7

Are you living in the fullness of His grace today? Are you stepping into the favor of the Lord?

As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you… God is pretty clear in scripture that He expresses Himself as our Father.

31 Days: Abounding

abounding in riches for all who call on Him… God is a God of excess. He is abounding in riches for us. He is abounding in lovingkindness. He is abounding in compassion. He is abounding in mercy.

31 Days: Overflow

31 Days: One Word - Overflow

For the mouth speaks from the overflow of the heart. Today’s mediation is a bit different as I’m not focusing on a character quality of God but on how our character is revealed in our speech.

31 Days: Re-creator

31 Days: Re-creator

But God…even when we were dead… made us alive together with Christ… We’ve already looked at God as our Creator, but I’ve been reading in Ephesians how, in Christ, He is our RE-creator. We were dead in our sins. We were spiritually lifeless, far from God, destined for destruction. Oh, but I was in tears . . . →Read More:
