Grace: The two-sided coin – part 1

We all know that Grace is “unmerited favor.” Grace is forgiveness, blessings, and provision. But what’s on the other side of the coin?

God pours out Grace to forgive our sins, and that’s awesome. Grace is greater than sin. And–before we sin, while we are in the struggle, we need to pray and ask for Grace to resist. Because– Grace is greater than sin.

Grace > Sin

Hebrews 4:15-16 New King James Version (NKJV)
15 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

We need Grace (God’s POWER) to help us in time of need, when we are tempted.

2 Peter 3:17-18 New King James Version (NKJV)
17 You therefore, beloved, since you know this beforehand, beware lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the error of the wicked; 18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.

If Grace is merely unmerited favor, why would we need to grow in it? There must be more to it!

“Grace is received anytime, anywhere, through prayer.” –John Bevere

Romans 5:17 (NKJV)

17 For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.)

How would you like to reign in life?!

More to come…
