People are always looking for more “stuff” in their lives, be it love, money, power etc.
Paul writes to the Ephesians ( and he writes to you) offering some different “stuff”.
Paul offers us grace and peace.
Grace can be defined as unmerited favour and peace is the absence of strife, but also has the implication of prosperity.
Thanks Paul, I for one will have more of those please!
Paul also tells us where to find this; it can only be found in God and Christ.
Grace and peace do not come from works, religious performance or from putting your self under legalism.
Grace and peace are a gift from God and are received through the finished work of Jesus Christ.
Jesus is actually described as being grace personified (John 1 v 17).
Peace (and mercy)comes from walking in the Spirit with the Lord and is a by-product of this (Galatians 6 v 16).
Do you want grace and peace in your life this afternoon?
Spend time with the Lord, meditate upon His Word and learn more about the finished work of Jesus Christ, and this will see grace and peace (including prosperity) flow through all aspects of your life.
This is what God wants for your life, He wants His grace and peace to flow through you so that you can live in health and prosperity (3 John 2 ).
He wants you to live and abundant life and has provided for this through the finished work of Jesus (John 10 v 10).
All you have to do is believe and receive!
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for the finished work of Jesus and thank you for your grace and peace”.
Ephesians 1 v 2…..Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ
