GOD OF GRACEApril 16, 2018
Daily Prayer for April 16th, 2018
Good Monday morning, God‚ÄĒthank you! :o)
‚ÄúYou, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness and truth” (Ps. 86:15). You are ‚Äúthe God of all grace‚ÄĚ (1 Pet. 5:10), who sits upon a ‚Äúthrone of grace‚ÄĚ (Heb. 4:16), who ‚Äúgives grace to the afflicted‚ÄĚ (Prov. 3:34), and provides salvation ‚Äúby grace‚ÄĚ through faith in Jesus (Eph. 2:8-9; cf. Acts 15:11; Rom. 3:24). Your son, Jesus is ‚Äúfull of grace and truth‚ÄĚ (John 1:14), and Your Spirit (the Holy Spirit) is called ‚Äúthe Spirit of grace‚ÄĚ (Heb. 10:29). Grace is undeserved favor. It is the love, mercy, or kindness that one person freely confers upon another who deserves the opposite (Matt. 5:44-45; Rom. 11:6; Eph. 1:6; 2:1-9; 2 Tim. 1:9; Tit. 3:5-7).
Thank You for the knowledge You give as I keep in Your word‚ÄĒfor ridding me of a legalistic mindset, judgmental spirit, or arrogance of any kind. Thank You¬†also for my forgiving heart. <3 The kindness shown is rooted in the goodness of the giver, You, therefore, I cannot boast. You, God of Grace, are amazing!! In Jesus name. Amen.
15¬†But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious¬†God,
slow to anger,¬†abounding¬†in love and faithfulness.
1 Peter 5:10¬†NIV
10¬†And the God of all grace, who called you¬†to his eternal glory¬†in Christ, after you have suffered a little while,¬†will himself restore you and make you strong,¬†firm and steadfast.
Hebrews 4:16 NIV
16¬†Let us then approach¬†God‚Äôs throne of grace with confidence,¬†so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
34¬†He mocks¬†proud mockers
but shows favor to the humble¬†and oppressed.
8¬†For it is by grace¬†you have been saved,¬†through faith‚ÄĒand this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God‚ÄĒ¬†9¬†not by works¬†so that no one can boast.
11¬†No! We believe it is through the grace¬†of our Lord Jesus that we are saved, just as they are.‚ÄĚ
24¬†and all are justified¬†freely by his grace¬†through the redemption¬†that came by Christ Jesus.
14¬†The Word became flesh¬†and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory,¬†the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace¬†and truth.
29¬†How much more severely do you think someone deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God¬†underfoot,¬†who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant¬†that sanctified them,¬†and who has insulted the Spirit¬†of grace?
44¬†But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,¬†45¬†that you may be children¬†of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.
6¬†And if by grace, then it cannot be based on works;¬†if it were, grace would no longer be grace.
Made Alive in Christ
2¬†As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins,¬†2¬†in which you used to live¬†when you followed the ways of this world¬†and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air,¬†the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient.¬†3¬†All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath.¬†4¬†But because of his great love for us,¬†God, who is rich in mercy,¬†5¬†made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions‚ÄĒit is by grace you have been saved.¬†6¬†And God raised us up with Christ¬†and seated us with him¬†in the heavenly realms¬†in Christ Jesus,¬†7¬†in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness¬†to us in Christ Jesus.¬†8¬†For it is by grace¬†you have been saved,¬†through faith‚ÄĒand this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God‚ÄĒ¬†9¬†not by works¬†so that no one can boast.
2 Timothy 1:9¬†NIV
9¬†He has saved¬†us and called¬†us to a holy life‚ÄĒnot because of anything we have done¬†but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time,
5¬†he saved us,¬†not because of righteous things we had done,¬†but because of his mercy.¬†He saved us through the washing¬†of rebirth and renewal¬†by the Holy Spirit,¬†6¬†whom he poured out on us¬†generously through Jesus Christ our Savior,¬†7¬†so that, having been justified by his grace,¬†we might become heirs¬†having the hope¬†of eternal life.
