Devotion: Use grace

13

John 1:17 “For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came about through Jesus Christ.”

Christ brought us grace and we need to take advantage of the grace and live it. Grace helps us to live according to the Word. Grace doesnt mean living reckless Christian life. Grace is the Divine influence on humanity. We get grace when we receive Jesus. Grace brings us acceptability, joy, favour, advantage and related good things on us.

Christianity is greater than regulations “Do not do this ,do not touch that etc. Col 2:22-23 “Therefore, if you died with Christ from the basic principles of the world, why, as though living in the world, do you subject yourselves to regulations— “Do not touch, do not taste, do not handle,” which all concern things which perish with the using—according to the commandments and doctrines of men? These things indeed have an appearance of wisdom in self-imposed religion, false humility, and neglect of the body, but are of no value against the indulgence of the flesh.”

God’s word.

Since grace came with Christ while law came by Moses,grace is better than law. The first of miracles for Jesus the one who brought Grace and for Moses the one who brought law was turning Water. Jesus turned water into wine at Cana (John 2:7-9) whereas Moses turned water into blood. Wine which was sweet and non alcoholic is a sign of happiness or gladness. Psa 104:15 “And wine to make glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face shining, and bread giving strength to his heart.”

Under law water turned to blood was a sign of judgement.

Ex 7:20-21 “Moses and Aaron did so, just as the Lord had commanded. Moses raised the staff and struck the water that was in the Nile right before the eyes of Pharaoh and his servants, and all the water that was in the Nile was turned to blood. When the fish that were in the Nile died, the Nile began to stink, so that the Egyptians could not drink water from the Nile. There was blood everywhere in the land of Egypt! ”

Under law when Israelites were being saved from Egyprians, the enemies of Israel the Egyptian army were killed before crossing the red sea. Under grace the armies that arrested Jesus were forgiven. Law brings death whereas grace brings life and forgiveness. This is why every believer need to operate under grace than law.

When you try to become righteous through law, you detach your self from Christ and his grace. Therefore acknowledge His grace and walk in it.

Gal 5:4 “You who are trying to be declared righteous by the law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace.”

This is the reason why if you want to win souls, dont preach the gospel of law where you tell people what to eat or not, it will not help them. They may stop eating but doesnt mean they are saved. Tell them what Christ already did for them and let them receive this grace and be saved. Once they are saved they will learn through the Word how to handle themselves in the Kingdom.

Preach the gospel of love rather than judgement.Joh 3:16 KJV* “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Confession
I am under grace and I am no longer under law. The grace of God is working in my life everyday and is producing results. I am a success through the grace. I am a victor and will win souls under the same grace. In Jesus Name. Amen
