He is Holy Forever! (Song is below)
We must know The Grace of God is always sufficient for our every need!
Whatever we are going through, we have enough Grace to make it through.
“And he said unto me, My Grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9
We will make it. Just never give up, or throw in the towel!
Some sell out and believe a cheap Grace story, however.
God forbid that!
The Grace of God never gives us a license to sin!
He is a Holy God and we must recognize that without true holiness, we will not see God!
The Grace extended to us cost Jesus Christ every drop of His very life’s blood.
(This following is a part of an excerpt I found on the subject of Cheap Grace. It was on gotquestions.com.)
“Cheap grace seeks to hide the cost of discipleship from people. It seeks to claim that as long as we make a profession of faith, we are saved.God’s grace covers all our sins. Again, that is a wonderful truth!
The apostle Paul says as much when he writes,
“Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 5:20-21
Yet, right after writing that, Paul follows it with this:
“What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it?” Romans 6:1-2
Salvation by Grace alone — through Faith alone — is so much more than simply mouthing the words “Jesus is Lord.”
We are not saved by a profession of Faith.
We are not saved by praying the Sinner’s Prayer.
We are not saved by signing a card or walking an aisle.
We are saved by a living and active Faith (James 2:14-26), a Faith that manifests itself in Repentance, Obedience and Love of God and our neighbor.
Salvation is not a transaction; it’s a transformation.
Paul says it best when he says we are “new creations” in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17). There is nothing “cheap” about Grace!”
To close today — Let us treat The Grace of God with much respect.
We are to still live a holy life in this present ungodly generation.
“Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see The LORD.” Hebrews 12:14
It is of course never a legalistic ‘rulebook holiness’ of course, but we are a Holy peculiar separate people.
“That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;” Philippians 2:15
We must be the real deal now and always!
God bless you all.
“What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, and one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?
Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?
Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?
And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?
For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.” James 2:14-26
