I woke up this morning with the words ‘Amazing Grace’ going through my mind and I found myself asking myself “What is amazing grace?” And like any good follower of Jesus, I prayed that God would show me what His amazing grace is all about. Which led me to ‘The Bible’ Below are some of the things I discovered. I am sure I am only touching the surface when it comes to describing God’s Amazing Grace.
THROUGH HIS AMAZING GRACE WE ARE PROTECTED AND PROVIDED FOR
God is our Light and our Protector. He gives us grace and glory. No good thing will he withhold from those who walk along his paths. Psalms 84:11
THROUGH HIS AMAZING GRACE HE SENT JESUS TO SHOW US THE RIGHT WAY TO LIVE
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. John 1:14
THROUGH HIS AMAZING GRACE WE CAN KNOW THE TRUTH THAT SETS US FREE
For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. John 1:17
THROUGH HIS AMAZING GRACE EVERYTHING I GOT WRONG CAN BE PUT RIGHT
All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. Romans 3:23-24
THROUGH HIS AMAZING GRACE I SURVIVED MY ADDICTION AND CAN REMEMBER WHAT I USED TO BE LIKE
In order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Corinthians 12:7-10
THROUGH HIS AMAZING GRACE RECOVERY IS AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE AND WE CAN CHANGE
The grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age. Titus 2:11-12
THROUGH HIS AMAZING GRACE I HAVE A FRIEND The Holy Spirit WHO WALKS WITH ME DAILY
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, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life. Titus 3:5-7
One of my favorite songs of all time. After this Holy Spirit led lesson I love it even more.
