Title: The grace of God.
(Romans 8:1-2) Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, Because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin.
It is a wonderful thing to know that when we are in Christ Jesus we are not condemned, because Christ has taken our sins to the Cross, He has taken our penalty to the Cross . It is amazing to see that the gift of Salvation is free and unmerited.
Many times, when I think about what Jesus has done for me , I feel great awe. It is just amazing. How can He have such a great love for us to the extent of giving His life, that is to say He has given us everything. It is really an amazing love that we cannot comprehend.
Vs 32 He who did not spare His own son but gave us Him up for us , how will He not also with Him graciously give us all things. If God sent His only begotten son to come and dye for us , what else can He not do for us? In all these, we are still not ready to accept that love and grace with open arms. We keep playing I don’t care attitude.
How are we embracing this wonderful grace today in our lives. Such a wonderful love. From the beginning of the earth , after the devil destroyed our relationship with God through Adam and Eve , still God sent Jesus to come and restore our relationship with Him. Christ gave His life to show the extent He love us. It is very sad that we are not trying to take up this salvation with appreciation.
Let us look at this song that says:
I gave my life for thee, My precious blood I shed, that thou might’st ransomed be, and quickened from the dead; I gave my life for thee
What hast thou giv’n for me?
My father’s house of light, My glory-circled throne, I left, for earthly night, for wand’rings sad and lone; I left it all for thee. Hast thou left aught for me.
When ever I come across this very song I always shed tears. Jesus Christ left his Father’s mansion and humbled Himself, and came to the earth , suffered and was crucified but we are not appreciating any of the things He did. We hardly pray, we hardly take out time for Him , to serve or show Him heart of worship.
Upon all these love He has lavished on us, and we continue having carefree attitude towards Him, He continues to cherish us and still not willing to see us perish. He is still at the right hand of His father interceding for us. Asking God our father to forgive us . Wow what a wonderful God we serve.
(John 3:16) For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
What a wonderful God, loving father we have. It is quite a pity that we are ignoring His call , His care and His passion. The devil is fighting seriously to distract us from accepting this great gift of eternal life. May we take divine authority over the distractions of the enemy in put him in a perpetual shame in Jesus name.
Prayers: I thank You God of heaven and earth for you infinite love upon my life. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. I praise you Lord because you are lover of my soul. Help me to genuinely serve you and give you my life. Please help me to live a life that will give glory to your name. In Jesus name I pray.Amen.
