Just A Thought for February 4February 4, 2016
The last verse of the Bible ends with a wonderful blessing. “The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Revelation 22:21). John wrote under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and left us all the promise that the grace of Jesus is always with us. It was through Jesus we received grace and it’s by grace we are saved. And it’s by grace everything we need is freely provided. Jesus is the fountain of grace because He is Grace.
Grace is a gift. It can’t be earned because Jesus already earned it. We can’t merit it, but through Jesus we can receive it. We can’t deserve it, but through the cross we can have it. Jesus took upon Himself what we deserved and gave us what we didn’t deserve. Now we are sons and daughters of God and joint heirs with Jesus. Through Him we have it all. Grace is the source and faith is the channel to see the promises manifest in our life.
