Grace is…

Do I deserve God’s grace?

Do you deserve God’s grace?

Because of his kindness, you have been saved through trusting Christ. And even trusting is not of yourselves; it too is a gift from God. ~ Ephesians 2:8 (NLB)

Every single person deserves God’s grace. God is kind, and loves every one of us, and therefore we deserve God’s grace and it is more than any of us ever need.

Ever felt like this?

Hold it all together
Everybody needs you strong
But life hits you out of nowhere
And barely leaves you holding on

I suspect at some point in our lives most of us have had times when we’ve felt like this. There is good news though – even when you feel this low, you are never on your own, because God is with you.

It may not feel as if God is with you, but He is. God simply reminds us that

I’m on the throne, stop holding on and just be held

I have always found it quite frustrating how prayer can be a standard part of our daily life. That is until we find ourselves in the midst of a crisis…then prayer seems to be the last thing we want to do.

Sadly, when we are most in need of God, we have a habit of turning away from Him, thinking we can go it on our own.

So here’s a warning for you, when you find yourself in a crisis or at rock bottom, don’t forget about God. In fact make God your priority, because with Him by your side during a crisis, it will be that little bit easier to get through that crisis.

Captain – a person who is at the head of, or in authority over others; chief; leader.

Even when there is a leader, a captain, in charge it doesn’t mean everything will go smoothly for the team they are in charge of.

When you’re in a war and fighting a battle, and you have God as your captain, there’s no way you are not going to win! ~ Joyce Meyer

For us as Christians, God is our captain. However, even that doesn’t that mean that we won’t have to fight any battles?

Far from it, every day is a battle against evil! But it is a battle we can win if we keep following our captain, God.

Just as breathing is just natural, and normal, so should witnessing be to the believer.

Yes, we all need to breathe to live. But do we continue to show we believe in God by telling string God’s message with non-believers?

If we claim to believe in God, but do not tell others about God’s love for them, can we truly say we are Christians?

Believe and share your belief!

Let all that I am praise the LordI will praise the Lord as long as I live. I will sing praises to my God with my dying breath. When they breathe their last, they return to the earth, and all their plans die with them. ~ Psalm 146:2 and 4

Sounds like a bit of a sad bible reading doesn’t it. However,it’s a reminder that we are called to praise God every day of our life, from the moment we breathe our first breath until we take our last breath.

This is the air I breathe
Your holy presence living in me

Are you living and breathing God every day of your life?

It’s amazing

God’s love is amazing isn’t it?

Our God is a God of love. He cannot stop loving us, for His very nature is love itself. He is love personified, and although sometimes it’s hard to comprehend or understand what kind of love is this that He has for us, we all will know that the love of God is all we need.

Here is a bible verse that speaks of God’s amazing love for all of us.

1 John 3:1 – “Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God!”

Broken chains

I was reminded at the weekend of a song that has always touched me:

My chains are gone
I’ve been set free
My God, my Saviour has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy reigns
Unending love, amazing grace

Yes, because of Jesus, we have all been set free. Free from every sin, but also free so that we can receive God’s unquestioning love.

I know I don’t deserve His love, but still be loves me – unending love, amazing grace.

When you’re looking for a club or organisation to join, do you choose the one you want to join based on how nice the building or the furniture is?

Or do you choose based on the number of members and how well the club/organisation is meeting their needs?

Personally I’d rather choose based on how well the needs of the members are being met, how about you?

Does the same apply when it comes to church? Are our churches appealing to those in our community?

What will make our churches attractive and relevant to the community around us will not be our programmes, buildings or social media presence. Rather, it will be the quality of our relationships with God, with each other and with the people we encounter in the community. ~ Henrik Andersen

Is your church appealing to those in your community? If not, it’s time to make the changes necessary to help your church build quality relationships with God and with those in your community.

When you think of a waterfall, what do you think of:

  • Water falling down a mountainside?
  • A never-ending stream of water falling down to a lower river?
  • Standing beside a waterfall get wet from the spray?
  • No matter what you do to try to stop the waterfall the water still finds a route downward

God’s love is a bit like a waterfall, as it falls down on us from above, and is unending. Even when we try to ignore God, or turn away from Him, He always finds a way to reach out to us.

So when you think of God’s love, think of it falling down onto you, just as water falls to the ground from a waterfall.
