THE GIFT OF GRACE 2-4-24 VIDEO ONE MINUTE
Grace is the chance to start fresh. Its in the understanding of Grace that you have the key to letting go of the past. Its undeserved favor. You cant earn it. You cant buy it but you can receive it. Grace is perpetual. It never runs out. Through Grace you receive right standing with God.
JOHN 1:17 The law was given through Moses; grace and truth have their genesis in Jesus Christ. Against the stark backdrop of the law, with Moses representing the condemned state of mankind, Jesus Christ unveils grace and truth! MIRROR
Ps 84:11 For the Lord God is a Sun and Shield; the Lord bestows [present] grace and favor and [future] glory (honor, splendor, and heavenly bliss)! No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. AMP
Psalms 84:11 For the Lord God is brighter than the brilliance of a sunrise! Wrapping himself around me like a shield, he is so generous with his gifts of grace and glory. Those who walk along his paths with integrity will never lack one thing they need, for he provides it all! TPT
Psalms 92:14 for in your presence they will still overflow and be anointed. Even in their old age they will stay fresh, bearing luscious fruit and abiding faithfully.
15Listen to them! With pleasure they still proclaim: You're so good! You're my beautiful strength! You've never made a mistake with me. TPT
Matt 5:4 "You're blessed when you feel you've lost what is most dear to you. Only then can you be embraced by the One most dear to you.
5 "You're blessed when you're content with just who you are no more, no less. That's the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can't be bought. MSG
James 4:6 But He gives us more and more grace (power of the Holy Spirit, to meet this evil tendency and all others fully). That is why He says, God sets Himself against the proud and haughty, but gives grace [continually] to the lowly (those who are humble enough to receive it). AMP
Luke 2:40 And the Child grew and became strong in spirit, filled with wisdom; and the grace (favor and spiritual blessing) of God was upon Him. AMP
Luke 2:40 There the child grew strong in body and wise in spirit. And the grace of God was on him. MSG
John 1:14 And the Word (Christ) became flesh (human, incarnate) and tabernacled (fixed His tent of flesh, lived awhile) among us; and we [actually] saw His glory (His honor, His majesty), such glory as an only begotten son receives from his father, full of grace (favor, loving-kindness) and truth. AMP
Acts 15:11 Don't you believe that we are introduced to eternal life through the grace of our Lord Jesusthe same grace that has brought these people new life? TPT
Acts 20:32 And now [brethren], I commit you to God [I deposit you in His charge, entrusting you to His protection and care]. And I commend you to the Word of His grace [to the commands and counsels and promises of His unmerited favor]. It is able to build you up and to give you [your rightful] inheritance among all God's set-apart ones (those consecrated, purified, and transformed of soul). AMP
Acts 20:32 And so now, I entrust you into Gods hands and the message of his grace, which is all that you need to become strong. All of Gods blessings are imparted through the message of his grace, which he provides as the spiritual inheritance given to all of his holy ones. TPT
Rom 1:5 It is through Him that we have received grace (God's unmerited favor) and [our] apostleship to promote obedience to the faith and make disciples for His name's sake among all the nations,
6 And this includes you, called of Jesus Christ and invited [as you are] to belong to Him. AMP ↕↕↕
ROM 1:5 The grace and commission we received from him, is to bring about a 1faith-inspired lifestyle in all the nations. His name is his claim on the human race.
6 In Jesus Christ you individually discover 1who you are. MIRROR
Rom 3:24 [All] are justified and made upright and in right standing with God, freely and gratuitously by His grace (His unmerited favor and mercy), through the redemption which is [provided] in Christ Jesus, AMP
ROM 3:24 While the law proved mankind's dilemma, the grace of God announces the same mankind's redemption in Jesus Christ! Their blameless innocence is a free gift! The gift-principle puts the idea of reward out of business! There is no exception - this belongs to every single person, Jew and Gentile alike! Mankind's righteousness is now redeemed. Jesus Christ is proof of Gods grace gift; he redeemed the glory of God in human life; mankind condemned in the language of religion, is now mankind justified in the language of the gospel! MIRROR
ROM 5:15 The only similarity in the comparison between the 1crash-landing and the gift, is that both Adam and Christ represent the masses. However, the grace gift lavished upon mankind in the one man Jesus Christ supersedes the effect of Adams failure by far and is beyond comparison in significance to the idea of 2death and separation.
16 The principle of the gift speaks a different language and brings a radically different equation to the table. Whereas a single sin resulted in a judgment that concluded in condemnation; grace translates countless deviations into acquittal and innocence.
17 Death no longer has the final say. Life rules! If the effect of one mans crash-landing engaged mankind in a death-dominated lifestyle how much more advantaged is the very same mankind now that they are the recipients of the boundless reservoirs of grace, empowering them to enjoy the dominion of life through the gift of righteousness because of that one man, Jesus Christ. Grace is out of all proportion in superiority to the transgression. MIRROR
ROM 5:20 The presence of the law made no difference, instead it merely highlighted the offence; but where sin increased, grace superseded it.
21 Death provided sin its platform and power to reign from; now grace has taken over sovereignty through righteousness to introduce unthreatened life under the Lordship of Jesus Christ over us. A simple equation: We were not made sinners by our own disobedience; neither were we made righteous by our own obedience.
The same humanity represented in the one man Adam, is triumphantly represented in the one man Jesus Christ! Adams transgression no longer holds the human race hostage. MIRROR
ROM 6:14 Sin was your master while the law was your measure; now grace rules.
15 Being under grace and not under the law most certainly does not mean that you now have a license to sin. MIRROR
ROM 11:6 Grace cannot suggest debt or obligation at the same time. The word grace can only mean what it says. The same argument goes for mankinds good works; if salvation or any advantage for that matter is to be obtained according to prescribed regulations of conduct, then thats it. No amount of grace can change the rules! Grace means grace and work means work.
7 The very thing Israel sought to obtain through their diligent labor they failed to get; yet those who embraced grace as Gods 1original intent hit the bulls eye every time, leaving the rest groping around in the dark like blindfolded archers. MIRROR
1 COR 1:4 I am always so happy for you when I consider how greatly advantaged you are because of Gods grace unveiled in Jesus Christ.
5 Your knowledge of Christ is based on so much more than hearsay; every aspect of your life gives eloquent expression to the rich reservoir of your union in him.
6 You certainly have the testimony of Christ evidenced in you
7 In receiving the revelation of Jesus Christ as the principal influence in your life (his Lordship), you prove that you lack nothing and that his grace gifts fully compliment you. MIRROR
1 COR 15:10 While my own doing completely disqualified me; his doing now defines me. I am what I am by the grace of God. I am because he is! His grace was not wasted on me; instead I am inspired to labor beyond the point of exhaustion, more than anything I ever did under the law of performance; whatever it is that I accomplish now has grace written all over it. I take no credit for it. MIRROR
2 Corinthians 6:1 Now, since we are God's coworkers, we beg you not to take God's marvelous grace for granted, allowing it to have no effect on your lives.
2For he says, I listened to you at the time of my favor. And the day when you needed salvation, I came to your aid. So can't you see? Now is the time to respond to his favor! Now is the day of salvation! TPT
2 COR 9:8 It is impossible to exaggerate the dimensions and detail of the grace of God! Plunge into the extravagance of grace where he exhibits the extreme dynamics of his bountiful dealing with us! We are already advantaged far beyond any calculation of personal merit to be completely self sufficient at all times in every possible situation that we might face! The overflow thereof amply supplies the needs of others in many creative ways to do good! MIRROR
GAL 1:15 Gods eternal love dream separated me from my mothers womb; his grace became my identity. MIRROR
GAL 2:21 21 It is an insult to the grace of God to prefer Moses to Jesus! If the law could justify you then Jesus wasted his time dying your death! MIRROR
EPH 2:5 This is how grace rescued us: while we were yet in that state of deadness and indifference in our deviations, we were co-quickened together with Christ! We had nothing to do with it. Grace freed us, once and for all from the lies that we believed about ourselves under the performance-driven system, and now defines our authentic identity!
6 We are co-included in his resurrection. We are also co-elevated in his ascension to be equally present in the throne room of the heavenly realm where we are co-seated with him in his executive authority. We are fully represented in Christ Jesus.
7 Imagine how God is now able for timeless perpetuity to exhibit the trophy of the wealth of his grace demonstrated in his kindness towards us in Christ Jesus. Grace exhibits excessive evidence of the success of the cross.
8 Your salvation is not a reward for good behavior! It was a grace thing from start to finish; you had no hand in it. Even the gift to believe simply reflects his faith! MIRROR
EPH 4:7 The gift of Christ measures the extravagant dimensions of grace; where everyone is equally advantaged. MIRROR
2 TIM 1:10 Everything that grace pointed to is now realized in Jesus Christ and brought into clear view through the gospel: Jesus is what grace reveals. He took death out of the equation and re-defines life; this is good news indeed!
11 Grace is my commission; it is my job and joy to proclaim this message and guide the nations into a full understanding of the love initiative of God. MIRROR
Hebrews 4:16 So now we draw near freely and boldly to where grace is enthroned, to receive mercy's kiss and discover the grace we urgently need to strengthen us in our time of weakness. TPT
