Memorize: They glorify God for your professed subjection into the gospel of Christ, and for your liberal distribution unto them, and unto all men. And by their prayer for you, which long after you for the exceeding grace of God in you. 2 Corinthians 9:13-14
Devotional Reading: Acts 9:1-19
The grace of God is immeasurable, it saved us even when we didn’t deserve it. The grace that delivered us from the cage of the enemies, if Jesus had not come to die for us, our lives would have been so miserable because Satan was prepared to destroy human kind with the venom of sin; but thanks be to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who sent His ONLY begotten son Jesus Christ to die and give us victory over Satan, sin, the world and flesh. As believers, we are products of God’s amazing grace, it was grace that saved us.
During the early days of Paul, he was full of cruelty, brutality and hatred against Christians. The Devil used him severely, he was given order by the King to kill Christians. Anyone will think such a man that did so much evill should never have been forgiven, talkless of being an Apostle. The grace of God made it possible, a persecutor of the church became saved and began to preach, evangelising and helping sinners come back to God, he became a product of grace.
Paul understood this and said in his letter to the church at Corinth “I am what I am by the grace of God” I Corinthians. 15:10
Another example of God’s exceeding grace was David. This man committed so much evil in the sight of God. He married many wives, killed another man and took his wife. Yet the Bible referred to him as a man after God’s heart. Isn’t that amazing? How can that be? I don’t know, all I can say is, this man found and enjoyed God’s exceeding grace. Among all the kings that ruled in Israel, David’s reign was never forgotten. A day was set aside to celebrate him in Israel till date.
There are products of this great grace of God even in our day’s. There is a man of God in one of West African countries, In one of his revival programs, he shared his true life story, how he was a member of satanic kingdom, they took hundreds of lives on the high way. He explained how their mission was to kill people through car accidents, then drink their blood and go their way. He said they kept doing this until one day Jesus appeared to him and said “I died for you to save you from this evil and the impending judgement that is coming upon the wicked people of the world, I need you in my kingdom therefore stop your evil doing and give your life to me” that was how he gave his life to Christ and eventually became a pastor. That night hundreds of souls were saved after he shared his testimony at the revival. You may ask again how can God save such a man like that? The answer is Our God is merciful, His love and grace is immeasurable it has no ending – John 3:16.
Brethren I can go on and on telling you how the exceeding grace of God has saved so many. You and I are also products of this exceeding grace. Whatever good and great you become today either in work, business or ministry, it is not by your power or might or knowledge, it is by the grace of God; Consider this: Romans 5:8; But God commendeth his love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” That is the work of grace. My friend out there, are you feeling condemned because of your sins, I want to tell you that Christ has paid it all for you, grace is available for you today, therefore come out of your sinful life and embrace this grace of God. It will work for you and save you in the mighty name of Jesus.
May the LORD help you take advantage of this exceeding grace of God while it is still available in Jesus name.
Prayers point : O Lord, i look unto you today, please let your exceeding grace work for me and transform my life for better in Jesus name.
Key Dose: Nothing is impossible for the Grace of God to accomplish.
