Before you can give grace in this world, or expect grace in this world, you must find grace from God through Christ.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Philemon 10 - I appeal to you for my son, Onesimus. I became his father while I was in chains.
Read - Philemon
Paul met the grace of God on the road to Damascus. Philemon met the grace of God thru the ministry of Paul (v 20). Onesimus met the grace of God by hearing the gospel through Paul. Each of these men found grace first with God and then began to find it in life and give it in life.
Lord, I will run to Your grace today.
We are Mended/Saved by God’s grace through our faith (Ephesians 2:1-10). We cannot apply what we have not received. Many well meaning people try their best to live lives of grace but fall short because they do not have the unending supply of that precious resource that is supplied when we are Mended by Jesus and are being Morphed by the Spirit of God. Trust Christ to give grace to you…not just for the moment (although He does) but for eternity!
