September 2nd 2017 – Grace & Peace

“Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” (2 Corinthians 1:2)

Grace. It’s a word we use a lot in Christianity, but do we truly understand what it means? To some, grace is just a prayer you say before eating, but in reality, grace is a life changing experience. Each of us is born into this world with a problem. That problem is that we are enemies of God. Because of our sin, we are at war with God and therefore, we deserve punishment. This tension between us and God leads to frustration, anxiety and fear. After all, if I know that I have done bad things, how am I supposed to make up for them? Can I do good things to outweigh it? No. Can I punish myself to satisfy God? No. The only solution for complete peace with God is His grace.

(Ephesians 2:8) “For by grace you have been savedthrough faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,”

When we admit to God that we are sinners and believe in Jesus for forgiveness, we experience His grace. God gives us forgiveness, love and eternal rewards not because we are good, but because He is. This is grace. When we understand this grace, we have peace. Peace to know that God is with us. Peace even in the storms of life because we know that God is on our side. While the world uses drugs, alcohol, sex and money to achieve temporary peace, God offers eternal peace. This peace doesn’t come from us earning it, but from the perfect grace of a loving God.

“If you don’t know grace, you can’t know peace.”

“No God No Peace, Know God know Peace”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for the grace that comes through Jesus. Because of this amazing grace, I can have true peace. No matter what today throws at me, I can know that Your love is true and Your forgiveness is real. May these Truths stay in the front of my mind and may You use me to share this peace with others today. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Invitation:

Jesus, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross at Calvary, and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in Jesus’ precious name Amen.
