Grace

Isaiah 26:7

Isaiah 26:7

But for those who are righteous, the way is not steep and rough. You are a God who does what is right, and you smooth out the path ahead of them.

After Thought

The Bible reminds us that God goes before us to soften rough places and makes a way for us in the wilderness.

2 Corinthians 1:5

2 Corinthians 1:5

For just as the sufferings of Christ are ours in abundance, so also our comfort is abundant through Christ.

After Thought

Paul described God as "the God of all comfort" because he was fully aware of His presence in difficult times. He walks us through the valley of the shadow of death and doesn't leave us there. Where there is a shadow there is light as well.

1 Timothy 1:15

1 Timothy 1:15

Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners -- of whom I am the worst.

After Thought

Many of us by our own volition have made a mess of our lives. God by His grace can make a miracle out of our mess. Paul knew this well because he went from persecuting the cause of Christ to preaching for the cause of Christ.

Jeremiah 31:19

Jeremiah 31:19

After I strayed, I repented; I kicked myself for my stupidity! I was ashamed and humiliated because I bore the disgrace of my youth.

After Thought

Grace is a wonderful blessing. Grace costs the giver everything and costs the receiver nothing. That is what Christ has done by giving us His grace.

1 Corinthians 8:9

1 Corinthians 8:9

Be careful, however, that the exercise of your rights does not become a stumbling block to the weak.

After Thought

Our goal as Christians is to do nothing that would hinder others from coming to know Christ. We should live in such a way that our life creates an appetite in others to partake of the truth we know. Our presence should leave a sweetness and not a bitterness.

Isaiah 64:8

Isaiah 64:8

Yet You, Lord, are our Father. We are the clay, You are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.

After Thought

May the strength of God pilot us, may the wisdom of God instruct us, may the hand of God protect us, may the word of God direct us. Be always ours this day and for evermore.

John 14:4

John 14:4

You know the way to the place where I am going.

After Thought

"Follow Me!" Those are the words of salvation that takes into account our will and our behavior. Faith follows the Lord in His steps and we know that as we do, where He is, we will be also.
