My family and I were blessed this weekend by the folks in Mabank, Texas that hosted Keith Daniel. Keith preached three nights; the messages were straight from Yahwehs heart.
I dont want try to re-preach his messages but I would like to pass on one important point he made.
Today the word Grace is being drug through the mud and has lost all clear understanding to the so called Christian.
I hold his same belief; I had always used the definition used in Strongs Concordance
Grace the merciful kindness by which God, exerting his holy influence upon souls, turns them to Christ, keeps, strengthens, increases them in Christian faith, knowledge, affection, and kindles them to the exercise of the Christian virtues.
But Keith gave me a new definition, straight from scripture
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;
And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.
Blessings on all, in Yeshua/Jesus Name
