Text: 1Corinthians 15:9-10
Theme: HIS GRACE IS ENOUGH
Memory Verse: “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” (2 Corinthians 12:9)
Most times we Christians underestimate the power of the Grace of God that is upon our lives. People do not know what the Grace of God is all about. It is often mistaken in these times as a license to get away with sin because it is seen as unmerited favor. You hear many Christians after committing one sin or the other say things like, ‘thank God for Grace’ or ‘ we are living under His Grace.’ This is a wrong application of the Grace of God. While it is true that Grace is unmerited favor, it is not an excuse for sin. Indeed Grace is God’s empowerment that enables us to do the things we otherwise could not have done in our flesh. It is grace that enables us to live an acceptable Christian life in this ungodly world. It is His grace that allows us to rise above sin and overcome temptation.
Before the coming of Jesus, there was no Grace available for believers. The Israelites lived under the Law of Moses and had to frequently offer sacrifices because they found it difficult to live up to the requirements of the law due to the weakness of their flesh. But after the death of Christ on the cross, Grace was given to all believers to enable them to live righteous lives. The Grace of God that was bestowed on end-time believers empowers us to live holy lives as required by God. This is because the Holy Spirit (part of His divine nature) now dwells in us. Consider the fact that before Grace came while the Israelites were under the law, the sin of adultery was committed when two people committed the act, but when Grace came, only looking at a person lustfully was equaled to adultery. Likewise, under the law, a person committed murder only when He killed somebody, but under Grace, if you call your brother a fool you have committed murder. You can see that under Grace a higher standard is required of us than when people were under the law. This is because God knows that we have been empowered by Grace to be able to live righteously. With grace, our weaknesses are made strong.
We, therefore, have no excuse not to live a victorious Christian life. Just like Paul, we should determine that the Grace of God upon our lives should not be in vain. We have been empowered to excel and His Grace is sufficient for all our needs.
Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:
- Lord, empower me with Your Grace so I can live a victorious Christian life, in Jesus’ name.
- Lord, let not Your Grace upon my life be in vain, in Jesus’ name.
- Father, I thank you for the Grace You have bestowed upon the life of my G. O and Mommy in the Lord, in Jesus’ name.
- Lord, I pray for an increase of Grace upon the life of my G. O and Mommy in the Lord, in Jesus’ name.
- Father, grant us peace in our nation. We decree there shall be no war, In Jesus’ name.
