Children of God – Day 26
Most of us do not fully understand grace. It means that Jesus has done everything for us. All that He has done to save us comes under the title of the GRACE of God. There is much in the Bible about both Grace and Mercy. We often find them together.
so that, having been justified by His grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.
This verse is part of a long sentence starting 3 verses earlier, which remind us just what being re-born into God’s kingdom by His grace offered through Jesus actually means for us.
Neither of the sons of the story we have looked at over the last three days understood grace, although the younger one who was forgiven and treated well began to as he started to appreciate his father’s generosity.
Most of us don’t fully understand grace. It means that Jesus has done everything for us. All that He has done to save us comes under the title of God’s GRACE. There is much in the Bible about both Grace and Mercy. We often find them together, and they are often described like this:
Grace = God giving us what we don’t deserve.
Mercy = God not giving us what we do deserve.
Being an heir or a son of our Heavenly father means not working so hard at what is not important, spending more time on what God is asking us to do, and just enjoying what is already ours.
If we lived as though we had much to celebrate, we would be better witnesses for Him who has given us all for our enjoyment (1 Timothy 6:17).
Read Titus 3 and pray for a new revelation of all that Jesus has done for you.
Pray for everyone in your church to understand the Grace and the Mercy of God.
Praise God for His Grace, which covers all our sins and provides for all our needs.
In the verse today Paul who wrote this letter to Titus tells us that we can become heirs with Jesus. Ask yourself today what that would mean in your life, and pray asking Jesus to help you understand it better.
