Be Strong in Grace 21 July Be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
Paul instructs us to be strong in grace. But what is grace? And what does it do? Titus 2 tells us, For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and wordly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world (verses 11-12). Grace teaches us. It teaches us how to live in freedom in this world. Whenever the Spirit of God corrects you, whenever He points out a mistake youre making or speaks to you about something youre doing that is grieving Him, dont be mad. Be glad! Its the grace of God teaching you something to make your life better. Grow strong in that grace by spending time every day in prayer. Live each day expecting the Spirit of God to counsel and instruct you about the things in your lifebig and small. Expect to hear from Him. If you dont, you wont listen for Him, and youre not likely to hear Him because He speaks in a still, small voice. As a rule, His words are quiet words. Theyre not overwhelming words. If you dont have a spiritual ear tuned to heaven, youll miss them. So, every morning of your life spend time praying in the spirit, talking to the Father and reminding yourself that the Holy Ghost is inside you, constantly teaching and guiding you. Become strong in the grace of God.Nehemiah 11-12; 1 John 1I am strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. 2 Timothy 2:1
