DISCOVER WHAT GRACE CAN DO
(NKJV): Acts 4:33 = “And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.”
(CEV): Acts 4:33 = “In a powerful way the apostles told everyone that the Lord Jesus was now alive. God greatly blessed his followers”
God’s Grace is free & we cannot get Grace by our works, only through Faith. Faith Works by love. So, no love no Faith, no Faith no Grace, no Grace… Whatever God Has Already Freely Given to us by Grace, we take by Faith. The Grace of God is Not an excuse for you to sin & go free no The Grace of God Will Help you not to sin.
Most of us do not have any idea what Grace really is. Oh, we know some basic facts about it. We know we were Saved by it (Eph. 2:8). But we do not even begin to understand the real Power it can release in our lives now, today!
If you want to get a picture of what Grace can really do, look at what happened to the early Christians in Acts 4. They had been threatened by the religious leaders of Jerusalem and commanded not to speak or teach any more in Jesus’ Name. So, they were praying about the situation.
Roughly, what they said was this, “Now Lord, we have been threatened, but we aren’t about to quit preaching and go hide under some religious rug. Just turn the power up, give us boldness, and we’ll go on.”
Do you know what happened as a result of that prayer? Verse 33 Tells us, “Great Grace was upon them all.”
Great Grace. Grace so Powerful that when those believers received it, the whole building shook. Grace so great, it Enabled the Apostles to work “many signs and wonders… among the people” (Acts 5:12).
That one story alone should be enough to convince you that Grace is not just some abstract spiritual state of mind. Grace is Real. It is Powerful. It Provides the Supernatural Power to Make things happen!
Now, do you want to know something really exciting? The Bible Says that same Grace that was Available to the early Church in Jerusalem is Available to anybody who is ever sinned and fallen short of The Glory of God.
Thank God, that means you and I qualify!
If the devil’s been threatening you lately, follow the example of those early Christians. Get in prayer and say, “Lord, I don’t care what the devil and his bunch say, I’m not going to back down. I am going to keep on talking and living by faith–and I am going to do it boldly. So just turn up the power!”
I guarantee you, if you are sincere about it, He’ll do it; and you will begin to discover what Grace is really all about.
There is no problem that you have that God cannot Solve; The Grace of God is Sufficient; we need to learn to do thing by Grace – AND THEN LIFE GETS BETTER
