Grace as Seen Through the Shed Blood and Broken Body of Jesus
God created all things, except Grace, of course. God and Grace created all things together. Jesus is God’s Grace. Jesus suffered, died, was buried, and was resurrected so we could be made righteous. As righteous, we are made WHOLE - total healing, health, prosperity, and eternal life!
Hebrews 10:19 - “Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus,”
1 Peter 2:24 - "and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed."
Jesus’s spilled blood, and broken body are a big part of God’s plan for Grace to save the world.
Colossians 1:16 - "For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him."
God’s Grace has been around since BEFORE the beginning of time, and it's still around today. Therefore, he has always been destined to be the sacrificial Lamb of God.
Hebrews 2:10 - "For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to perfect the author of their salvation through sufferings."
As a matter of fact, today, we see Grace growing in greater and greater measures. Grace continues to grow in the earth, more now than ever before. God is Grace, and we know Him as the Son of God. As sin grows and the earth darkens, the Grace of God will raise a measure of Grace that greatly surpasses sin.
Ephesians 2:8 - "For by Grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;"
The truth is, the Grace of God can be seen by everyone, and it’s always been seen.
1 Corinthians 8:6 - "yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom are all things and we exist for Him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we exist through Him.
God’s Grace is undeniable. And, it’s always been viewable and in plain sight, even to the blind. Grace is unmistakable.
2 Timothy 1:9 - "who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and Grace which was granted us in Christ Jesus from all eternity,"
God’s Grace cannot be separated from God Himself. It can’t be separated from His suffering or His death or His resurrection. God’s Grace is His nature, His essence, and His very way of being. God’s Grace is, was, and will forever be, His Beloved Son, Jesus.
John 1:13 - "who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God."
Grace is Life, my life, your life, and the life of everyone came about by Grace!
Ephesians 2:5 - "even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by Grace you have been saved),"
No one but God Himself can create life, and He does it through His Son, which is the Word of God.
Ephesians 1:7 - "In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace."
We know we exist, we know we are alive, and we know we are conscious and aware of our being. We know we did not make ourselves, so therefore, someone did.
Hebrews 1:2 - "in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world."
Furthermore, each of us knows we didn’t make ourselves “come alive.” Therefore, intuitively, all living people should realize we owe our existence to something or someone.
Titus 2:11 - "For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men,"
The Bible says the credit goes to the “Grace of God.”
Romans 8:28-29 - "And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren"
“Awareness of self” was the first thing we experienced in life. After that, life just seemed to happen all by itself, and somewhere along the way, we came to realize cognitively that we existed. We probably were protesting or complaining.
2 Timothy 1:9 "who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was granted us in Christ Jesus from all eternity,"
God gave me life. God gave you life. You and I can do nothing about it - it happened, and we are now aware that it happened.
1 Peter 1:23 - "for you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring word of God."
Grace is represented by the sacrifice, suffering, and the incredible resurrection of Jesus, who endured suffering, shame, and death for the world's salvation.
John 3:16 - “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
According to the Bible, Jesus is the Word of God, and He’s full of grace and truth. The Word is active and alive and enduring, and it is the source of all life.
John 1:14 - "And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth."
