IT WAS THE GRACE
At that time Jesus, full of joy through the Holy Spirit, said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do.
Luke 10:21 NIV
Maybe you were raised in the family that knew the Lord and guided you in the way of the Lord. There are some of us who came from religious backgrounds; we did not understand the whole truth; but at least we had a surface picture when it comes to the things of God.
It didn't take much for us to shift from our religions to understand the Gospel of truth when God revealed His amazing grace to us. We hear some Christians who were highly tempted; because they came from parts of the world that didn't believe in Jesus. Some came from families that worshiped idols or had been involving themselves in satanic worships.
You may take for granted the knowledge that you got through the Holy Scriptures and the freedom that you have in Christ. There are many people who wished they could get what you are getting; but they don't have the same access as you. If you look around the world no all people understand the word of God; many are doing things that you may have been said to yourself that you will never do. The difference between you and people who don't know God is the revelation that you have been given in Christ Jesus.
This morning, I want you to know that it was the grace of God that saved you from your corrupted life which you once had. This is the grace which made Jesus to rejoice in the Holy Spirit, praising the Father, Lord heaven and earth, because He has hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children like you and I.
I have seen many intelligent men and women who don't want to hear anything about Jesus. I wonder how in the world their intelligence doesn't help them to understand that there is life after this life. Many believe there is no more life after death, and those who believe there is life; they believe in different false doctrines about afterlife.
I want you to take a moment to thank God for what He has revealed to you in Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior. Thank Him for His loving-kindness and that He has given assurance through His Son Jesus Christ that even if you will die today; you will go to be with the Lord in heaven.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Heavenly Father, I thank You for the message of the cross that have changed my life. I know it is your grace that has brought me this far. Lord I'm asking that You may help me to continue walking in the faithfulness; while I'm patiently waiting for the Second Advent of your Son Jesus Christ. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
