Understanding Grace (Part Two)

Grace is filled with God’s favor and reveals His intentionality toward us.  We did not ask for His grace, He extended it to us.  In fact, when people began to ask to be saved by His grace, it was because the Holy Spirit moved in their heart to ask.  It was totally His idea to begin with.  If the Father did not look favorably on you first, you would have never thought to call on the Name of Jesus.  He gives us the right questions to ask in order for us to find the right answers.

God’s grace is very personal and it should be received as such.  Without it, we could not have a relationship with Him, which is one reason He saves people.  God is a Father Who desires children and loves His children dearly beyond measure.  If you received His grace, then be sure to receive His Love because the Father intended you to have it.  It is time to stop questioning His love for you, if you are one who questions God!

Grace is pregnant with the Father’s will.  It is designed to fulfill His desires and the things pertaining to His Kingdom.  By saving people, God reveals His desire for hell to be empty and heaven to be full.  Therefore, part of grace is the saving us from the wrath to come.  Because of His favor, He draws us to repentance, which also means that every human being on the planet has been given space to repent.  As along as a person is alive, he or she will be given the opportunity to call on the Name of the Lord and be saved. 2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance (KJV).

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God (KJV).  Grace plays an intricate role in the born again process.  The phrase “born again” means to be born from above: it does not mean repetition.  Being born again ties in with Ephesians 2:5-6, “Even when we were dead in sins, (God) hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus (KJV).  Just as we need physical endowments to function on the earth, we need spiritual endowments to function in the Kingdom.  Grace is the vehicle in which the Holy Spirit imparts these endowments. 1Corinthians 12:4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit (KJV). “Gifts” is the Greek word “CHARISMA,” which comes from grace (CHARIS).  By grace, the Holy Spirit manifests Himself through the believer.  In order to think and act like Jesus we need grace.
