is through Him that we have received grace (God’s unmerited favor) and
[our] apostleship to promote obedience to the faith and make disciples
for His name’s sake among all the nations.”|
(Romans 1:5, AMPC)
When you receive God’s grace in your life, you are receiving His favor. Not only is grace God’s favor, but it’s also His supernatural empowerment. God’s grace enables you to accomplish more and be more effective both in your own life and in building the kingdom of God. With grace and favor, you can make a difference in the lives of the people around you. You can “promote faith” by living a life of love.
Remember, God wants to empower you with His grace so that you can show love and encourage the people in your life—your coworkers, your family, your friends. How do you receive grace? By simply opening your heart and thanking Him for it. Thank Him for giving you His grace that empowers you. Then, begin to sow grace and favor into the lives of others. Those seeds will come back to you in a mighty harvest of grace in your future!
|A Prayer for Today|
|“Father, thank You for Your promise of grace in my life. Thank You for unmerited favor and for power in Your Word. I receive Your grace right now and invite Your love to flow through me today in Jesus’ name. Amen.”|
