And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness. But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
(2 Peter 3:15-18).
Today’s Morsel: One of the things about being a Christian is that we must learn and grow. Even Paul’s instructions to the church is for them to study and grow. One of the things that I believe every Christian should grow in is God’s grace. God’s unmerited love and favor and His divine influence in their lives. The reason that I believe this is so that when God tells us “no”, as He told Paul, we can still say just as Paul, “Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong” (2 Corinthians 12:9-10). God’s grace will keep us worshiping and praising Him even when He says “no!”
Sing: Grace! Grace! God’s grace. Grace that will pardon and cleanse with in. Grace! Grace! God’s grace. Grace that is greater than all our sins.
Thought For Today: God’s grace is sufficient for thee.
