ONLY BY GRACE 2

Eph 2:8

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God [KJV]

By the time Amara was 35, the Lord had blessed her on every side and she was an icon of righteousness in her place of work. There was one mistake she started to make; she began to attribute her righteous life to her ability to be disciplined and to keep certain laws that were also becoming predominant among her friends.

When Amara was 38, her son was diagnosed with a scary disease. This was not the first time Amara saw something this scary; the child was not even to live more than 6 months but God healed him and he was now 12 years. Unlike when he was born, Amara simply noticed that her faith that she normally used to command such situations to submit was now missing. She did not know that her faith had been eroding for the past three years when she started walking outside grace by being legalistic and not even noticing it. After weeks of searching and seeking God’s face, God showed her the root of her problem. Her son was later healed.

This is probably the biggest temptation against Christians; it manifests itself when Christians who have been walking by grace begin to outline laws and rules that they have been deceived to believe are responsible for their lives of righteousness. They think that they got to where they are because they kept certain laws and were more disciplined. They forget that they knew how to keep laws but were still wretched sinners when by faith, they came to the Lord who saved them and empowered them to be righteous.

Go into today thanking God for His grace that has empowered you with a disciplined sound mind, and that teaches you to live righteously.

Ask the Lord to help you always grow in grace. Amen.

-Pas SD Abraham
