A Thought on Grace

I have being giving a lot of thoughts on how often, my past and my present mistakes, weighs me down and put a pause on my work in the vineyard of The Lord. I realised that most times I have a being the architect of my own periles until, one day when I was studying God’s Word, the Lord told me, Son, study the children of Israel from the time they came out of Egypt until they reached Mount Sinai. Not a single one of them died though they murmured. And that is a picture of pure grace.

When I heard that, I turned to the Bible feverishly to check—as if to prove to God that someone did die! Until then, I had never heard anyone preaching about this! And indeed, I could not find any record of anyone who died before the law was given at Mount Sinai. You see, God delivered the children of Israel out of Egypt and provided for them, not based on their goodness, but based entirely on His goodness. Similarly, because we are under the new covenant of grace, God’s blessings and provision for us are based not on our performance, but entirely on HIS goodness!

So are you waiting until you are good enough before you start working for God? Come on, He said “Surely Goodness and Mercy shall FOLLOW you”; meaning: you have to start making headway and start walking and working and Goodness and Mercies shall be your escort.

Don’t Lose Hope God is still God
