As I’ve said a number of times before in DIG I am often accused of teaching what is known as the “grace message”.
And I’ve often said this before (but it is good to be reminded about it) that grace is not a message, it is also not a doctrine or a teaching.
Grace is a person.
Jesus Christ is the personification of grace.
I was reminded about this again this morning as I was reading the book of Titus.
Paul says it is the grace of God that brought salvation and that grace has appeared to all men (Titus 2 v 11).
This can only be talking about Jesus.
He is the only way to the Father, the only way unto salvation (John 14 v 6).
Jesus became flesh and dwelt among us as a man (John 1 v 14).
Indeed in the gospel of John we are told that grace (and truth) came in the person of Jesus Christ (John 1 v 17).
Grace is Jesus and Jesus is grace, He is the personification of grace for us to see and marvel at.
He is truth and He is the only truth.
So if someone says to you, “do you preach the grace message”, thank them, and say, “yes I do, I preach Jesus”.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for the finished work of Jesus Christ, the perfect example of your grace”.
Titus 2 v 11…..For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men
