Grace and More Grace

Grace And Truth Came By Jesus
Grace And Truth Came By Jesus

Grace and Truth Makes All The Difference

Grace and Truth came by Jesus Christ's redemptive work on the cross. After all of Christ's teachings and the Apostles' teaching and writings, we now have a new testament guide to grace and truth. The guide will lead us through grace and truth and to eternity where we'll forever be with the Lord.

We have Grace and Truth to aid and guide us in our daily living. It not only makes our days worth living but it empowers us to empower others to live a non-condemning life. St. Paul said it best in Romans 8 chapter and 1st verse. The reason that there is no more condemnation in Christ Jesus is because Christ took it all upon Himself and gave us Grace and Truth. Grace is the undeserving favor of God.

So no matter how many times we fall short of God's glory; grace is right there waiting for us to look up and reach up and recieve it through Jesus Christ. A Sample of Grace is when the diciple ask Jesus how often should I forgive my brother; seven times? Jesus replied until 7 times 70 in one day. Yes, that's a lot of grace! Thank God for it. We no longer have to walk around feeling bad, disgraceful, discourage, or discontented. When we ask God and others for forgiveness. God automatically throws it away and so should we. Imagine if everyone would do that in all situations how much peace would be in the world; not to mention LOVE. Everything is powered by LOVE! Grace and Truth was born out of LOVE. In the Bible St. John 3:16 lets us know that.

Nevertheless, let us not take advantage of the Grace and Truth of God but rather apply it everywhere it is needed. There's enough Grace for everybody so don't keep it all to yourself; spread it all over the world! God wants us to live and enjoy life and to love one another. Let's do just that. Until next time. K.I.S.S. Keeping It Sweet and Simple to understand

If "grace" does not make your brother holy and you are forgiving your brother "7 times 70 in one day", does that not negate the power of Jesus Christ in his life?

If your brother is still a slave to sin, would grace and forgiveness have two different contexts in this case?

As "Christians", do we have grace in sin, or grace from sin?

PlanksandNails, I'll start with your last question in your comment. As "Christians", we have grace in sin that leads us to grace from sin. I say that because when a person first come to Christ they know nothing of Grace and it's true meaning. So while they yet may be sinning, grace is there. From the moment anyone accept Christ as Lord and Savior they instantly become the righteousness of God and Grace and Truth is available to them; it came through Jesus. I'm an heir and joint heir with Christ. I have whatever He has. I don't work for it; I receive it; what He provides. As one grows in the wisdom, knowledge and understanding of God (Jesus) grace become something that keeps one from sin. Minds have to be renewed. Rom 8. There is NOW no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. That's the love of God for each and every one of us. Jesus died for sin once and for ALL. Never to be condemned again. I'll answer the the other 2. later. Thank you for reading and commenting.

PlanksandNails, to answer your 1st question. No, it doesn't deny or nulify the power of Jesus in his life. It simply covers, forgives, remits, throw away the wrong doing. We are made the righteousness of God through Jesus. Can't be taken away, not matter what. God doesn't change His mind about us we're not under law but grace. Jesus died for sin once and for all. That's a done deal. To forgive so many times in one day is an expression of grace. Where sin abounds, grace much more abounds. You can't get any more righteous or get any more grace but you can get holier. Holiness is a way of life; to be lived daily. Righteousness and grace is a gift from God. Holiness is something we learn and grow to be. Be ye holy for I am holy. When we learn what God word tells us to do and obey it we become more holy.That's a process. But righteouness and grace is ours during the process of becoming more holy. God sealed it with Jesus. He see the blood of Jesus when he looks at us. Now if God didn't then it would negate the power of Jesus in our lives and negate Jesus power as well. Which would leave us under law and not grace and truth. But not so!

Your 2nd question: if my brother is still a slave to sin, grace and forgiveness would have 2 different contexts, if he's being judged by men or the law. Grace is the unconditional love of God for us, exactly as we are, apart from our own efforts. This is the accepted definition of "grace," with the ending phrase reassuring us that we have no worries about our present state of sinfulness.

Forgiveness leads to freedom and reconciliation. Which works hand in hand with God and it would not be 2 different context. God forgiveness is automatic because of the body and blood of Jesus. We have to acknowledge sin and receive grace and forgiveness by faith. If my brother is a slave to sin there is something missing in his understanding about the love and grace of God. People are still being destroyed by lack of knowledge of the Truth. I hope you understand my understanding of God's Truths. Thanks for commenting and questions.
