This is one of the biggest weekends for us – this is why we call ourselves Christians and our hope comes from Jesus as he goes through his obedience to the Cross…
Jesus is the one we use as an Example to show what “Radical Truth and Grace” means and we are to use him as our Example to live a Christ like life.
I have copied a few versus that have really inspired me this weekend :
From the book of John – it shows that through Jesus Glory of the being God’s only son that he was Grace and Truth that came to earth…
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
This one I really liked – Moses had brought the Law and then there came Jesus – he was bringing change to a world that was not ready for it in those days – what he brought was a Radical Change… something that no one was ready for… it is one of those WOW moments….
The Word Made His Dwelling among Us
John1: 16For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace. 17For the Law was given through Moses; grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ. 18No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten God who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him.
This verse tells it all about TRUTH – it is was sets us free from the earthly things of this world and brings us closer to Christ… It is only through the truth that Jesus has brought and in his word we can see how to live in this world we are in at the present time…. I know through his truth – life becomes a who lot easier to take……………………..
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
This is the best part – GRACE – it is a gift given to us that is free and not deserved but given to us anyway. We are Saved and will have eternal life with him if only Believe… Grace is an Action that you will see us focus on bringing that to life in our own lives… The Big Question is: Can we give Grace to all of those around us – just as Christ has given Grace to us… It is by being in his word (Truth) that we can see how to do this… Look at the life of Christ and see how he how he did this… Giving Grace to all of those around us….
Eph 2:7-10 That in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. (8) For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: (9) Not of works, lest any man should boast. (10) For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
Grace is giving someone what they do not deserve — can you do that to those around you – it is not an easy concept to live up to – but when you your life exemplifies this – it is when you see Christ working through you – WOW….
It is a great weekend….
