Being away from home and staying in a hotel has a few advantages (not a lot but a few).
One is not having to make my own breakfast.
I’ve just enjoyed a lovely buffet style meal to start the day; I was told, “You can have all you eat, you just need to help yourself”.
Now, those of you who read my DIGs on a regular basis may have an inkling as to what will come next.
What the lady in the hotel said reminded me of the message of grace!
All the food had been prepared for me in advance and was sitting there, and I was allowed to take as much as I wanted.
The only part I played in this breakfast was to take it and eat it!
At its simplest this is also the message of grace, this is the good news of the Gospel.
Through the finished work of Jesus Christ all that we need for life and godliness has already been provided (2 Peter 1 v 3).
Jesus came to give us life in abundance (John 10 v 10).
Everything is there for us, already provided, we just need to believe this and then take it or receive it.
Healing has been provided, we need to take it; prosperity has been provided, we need to take it; joy and peace have been provided, we need to take it.
We can have a life of abundance because Jesus came to bring this and He has done His part through the cross.
Now we need to do our part and that is simply believing and receiving.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for the finished work of Jesus and thank you for all that this has already provided for me”.
John 1 v 17…..For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ
