Grace - good nuggets of wisdom to chew on, Sister.More food for thought.a taste of what Grace is. My strength is made perfect in weaknesssaved through faithFor sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under graceit is no longer of worksGod resists the proud,But gives grace to the humbleLet us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of needgrace and truth came through Jesus Christ11 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, 12 teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, 13 looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 14 who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself Hisown special people, zealous for good works.You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus19 For I through the law died to the law that I might live to God. 20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. 21 I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died [j]in vain.”10 But [f]may the God of all grace, who called [g]us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, [h]perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.
Thank you Sherri,* Grace, .....Much here to think about,.. Paul’s desire:,...and he knowing of the importance of *Grace,... it was not just empty words.~~~~~,,Notice how he and many others emphasized the word *Grace.First , he would say, “Grace to you and peace”Grace is *always first,.. we must have this *Grace first, before we can have *peace.Grace helps us to be *reconciled to *God, ( who is The One Who speaketh to us,.. led by,.. He is The Spirit / Word.So ! ..He is *Reconciling us unto Himself.”~~~~~~~~~*The Devine effluence ,... *Grace —————-♥️elizabeth
The ‘Grace’ of God,...~~~~~~~~I have Never heard someone preach / explain Grace like this before,...It is almost nonexistent.Please listen,... ~~~~~~~~~02 “Grace in which to grow”By Gbile Akannihttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BkwGj24jfCI&feature=share——————elizabeth
Sister Elibeth,It’s been such a blessing to listen to these teachings. Something that stood out today was this passage in the NIV version....The question is : What does GRACE teach us?Titus 2:11 For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. 12 It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, 13 while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, 14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.
