My Journey with the Lord: A Topical Study on God’s Grace

Has anyone ever studied God’s Grace? It is actually a very abstract idea and difficult to put into words. However I want to share what I found with everybody as it was very enlightening and interesting. Firstly, God’s grace is free, but we are instructed “not to receive it in vain.” 2 Cor. 6:1. I didn’t research that concept much except to think maybe it means don’t get saved and then carry on sinning in the same old way because that is receiving it in vain? One of the biggest lessons I came away with was this (my words summed up) ” God’s grace saved us and through His grace we receive spiritual gifts and blessings. We should all honor each others as partakers of the same blessings and as we are part of the same body, and work hard to help each develop our spiritual gifts. The most important concept of being a Christian obviously being to love.” 1 Cor. 12 & 13. Remember that all good things we learn come from God. That goes for everyone. Each and every good lesson that makes us better people is not something that we accomplish on our own. God’s Grace is literally God’s favor and blessings and love that has be freely bestowed on us undeserving humans. Interestingly enough my original study started on discovering the meaning of “enlighten my eyes” as stated by the Psalmist in Ps. 13:3 and then went on to Shine light, Hope, Calling, then to Ephesians 3:2-3, 5 “dispensation of the Grace of God” and that is when I started really studying grace. If you are like me you just accept that we are saved by God’s grace, but what does that mean and what does such honor entail? Share your thoughts!!! Love to all!

My Journey with the Lord: Searching, Seeking

I was studying yesterday, and I had this thought (now I believe that nothing happens on accident) what if every single moment was an opportunity to speak to God?  What if every person we passed was a chance to witness, every vehicle we passed on the road that stood out to us, every number that we notice were all God’s signs for trying to get our attention?  I have tons of articles online about how God speaks to you in 3 or 4 ways, but who are we to put a limit on how God can speak to us?  We limit God to what we understand, but He is so much more than we can possible imagine.  Think of it like this:

What if every back road you found yourself on was predestined and not just some wrong turn that you took?  What if every person who came in to your life was someone that you were supposed to learn from?  What if every single moment at work was an opportunity to show God’s love?  How much greater would this world and our adventure in it be if we lived life this way?  I am going to do a photo project- an experiment to see in how many different ways God speaks to me.  We go through so much of life on auto pilot and not paying attention to what is truly going on around us in a spiritual sense.  We don’t pay attention and truly live.  We only exist.  I want to live!  I want to know God!  I want to embrace this adventure until He calls me home!
