From Jim’s Heart—
It is an understatement to say that the Christian life is not easy. In fact, you could say that it is impossible. Like so many believers before you, including people like the apostle Paul, you will experience weaknesses, insults, distresses, persecution, and difficulties.
But take heart! God promises that the grace that saved you will also keep you and provide the strength and power you need to live the Christian life. It comes through His indwelling Spirit, who will guide and empower you. No matter what your situation, you can approach God’s throne with confidence, so that you may receive mercy and find grace to help you in your time of need (Hebrews 4:16).
Now, what part can you play in putting God’s G-R-A-C-E to work in your life?
G-ive thanks to God that you are under grace and not the law.
R-espond in love and obedience to this gift in your life.
A-sk God for wisdom to understand what His grace should mean in your life.
C-ommune with other believers in a Bible-teaching church where you can receive training in the ways of God.
E-xtend God’s grace to others by sharing the gospel, showing forgiveness, and helping them to shoulder their burdens.
“For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect
has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace,
that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
