MFM Daily Devotional 25 December 2021 | Mountain Top Life Outline
Grace is God’s unmerited favour bestowed on man. It is a quality of behaviour that is polite and pleasant and deserves respect. When God’s grace is at work, it enables a person to get good things that he or she does not deserve. Mercy, on the other hand, ensures that a person does not get the judgement or punishment he or she deserves.
It is true that grace cannot be withheld from man, but this does not prove that there are no conditions men must meet in order to get the benefits of grace. The grace God gave to mankind is unconditional grace. His main obligation of grace is to the saints who walk in light of the gospel. He is not under obligation to sinners until they come to full obedience of the gospel.
Paul said when we are yet sinners, Christ died for us. This is great and unmerited grace. Even the Christianity of today cannot be compared with when we were not in this dispensation of grace. Today, grace is being abused and we have taken it with levity.
Grace teaches men to deny ungodliness and worldly lust and to live soberly and righteously. If you are still struggling with the world, it means you have received grace in vain. When Christ left the earth, the Holy Spirit poured out at Pentecost. The Old Testament calls Him the Spirit of grace and of supplications. It is this Spirit who also convicts us of sin and reveals us to God’s righteousness and judgement.
The Spirit also helps our infirmities. Christ set you free from slavery to sin; He purchased your freedom with his life. Perhaps you have separated yourself from God, you have repeatedly fallen to the ground several times or perhaps the weight of your sin is too heavy for you. The grace of God that bings salvation is still available today.
Cry to God daily for fresh supply of His grace. Beloved, do not take the grace of God for granted. His grace is matchless, ever-increasing and ever-sufficient for His children. It can make a world of difference in your life if you cooperate with Him and walk in His will. Moses came with the law but Jesus came with grace and truth. Let His grace count in your life!
God’s grace is sufficient for you.
The grace of God shall locate you from generation to generation, in the name of Jesus.
HYMN: Grace! ’tis a charming sound
- Grace! ’tis a charming sound,
Harmonious to the ear,
Heav’n with the echo shall resound,
And all the earth shall hear.
Saved by grace alone!
This is all my plea:
Jesus died for all mankind,
And Jesus died for me.
- ‘Twas grace that wrote my name
In life’s eternal book;
‘Twas grace that gave me to the Lamb,
Who all my sorrows took.
Grace taught my wand’ring feet
To tread the heavenly road,
And new supplies each hour I meet,
While pressing up to God.
Grace taught my soul to pray,
And made mine eyes o’erflow;
‘Tis grace has kept me to this day,
And will not let me go.
Oh, let Thy grace inspire
My soul with strength divine!
May all my powers to Thee aspire,
And all my days be Thine.
1) O Lord my Father, do not leave me nor forsake me, in the name of Jesus
2) Divine grace, locate my life, now in the name of Jesus.
3) Where is the Lord God of Elijah? Arise and uproot every besetting sin from my life, in the name of Jesus.
4) Every evil power that wants to divert the grace of God from my life, die, in the name of Jesus.
5) Let grace write my name in the book of life, in the name of Jesus.
6) O Lord, take me from where I am now to where You want me to be, in the name of Jesus.
7) I pull down every evil kingdom working against the grace of God over my life, in the name of Jesus.
