Scriptural Reading: Titus 2:11-14
I Corinthians 15: 10 – ‘‘But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.’’ (KJV)
There was this incidence of one lady that armed bandits visited their compound. As they were robbing in the compound, her neighbours were victims and she had to place her tithe card at her doorstep, reminding God of her faithfulness in tithing. Did you know that she was not robbed by the bandits? She had grace for exemption and God was faithful to her. To God be the glory. Through grace, the race is won.
Apostle Paul is one Bible character I have cherished so much. As an unbeliever, he persecuted the Church of Christ a great deal and was committing the people to prison with reckless abandon. The persecutor became the preacher and he was able to acknowledge the grace of God upon his life in our above Bible reference. The life he lived, became solely for Christ (Galatians 2:20), and he was always recounting the grace of God upon his life and this same grace became sufficient for him and he was able to accomplish his Christian race to the finished line (II Timothy 4:7-8).
The God of all grace is the giver of strength to the weak and he has all humankind at heart. He knows that all mortals have limited strength and He is always at standby to help all. God Almighty wants us to always call on Him to give us grace daily to live above sin and to conquer each day. When we do that He will always respond to our clarion call and He will send us His grace speedily from His sanctuary. God is too faithful to fail and He will continue to renew our strength each new day. The grace of God is the divine grease that governs the life of all mortals. Let us always ask for grace in all that we do and above all the grace to make Heaven which is the fulfilment of destiny.
Dear Lord Jesus Christ, I acknowledge you today as the only original Saviour and I cannot help myself, release upon me your fresh grace daily so that I can succeed in all that I do. As you anointed David in Psalm 89:20, Lord anoint me afresh with your oil of grace daily through your Holy Spirit Divine. Amen
Grace is a ladder for victory and for success and it has no limitation to cultural boundaries.
