All You Need Is Grace
Do you know what God’s answer to all your weaknesses, shortcomings, and inadequacies is? It is His grace!
Listen to what the Apostle said in 1 Cor. 15:6: “I am what I am by the grace of God.” Now, think about this. This was the Apostle’s testimony: “I am not what I am today because of my extensive experience, first-class education, wonderful upbringing, great national heritage. I am what I am by the grace of God!”
Paul had one explanation for his success—God’s grace. Grace made him the man he had become and grace empowered him to do what he had done. And that same grace will make you! What you could never do or be because of your shortcomings, you can be and do by the grace of God.
Romans 6:14 reads, “For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law, but under grace.” Men succeed under grace, who fail under law. Why? Because the man who is under law is trying to work for God, but the man who is under grace has God working for him! No wonder he succeeds. You see, grace is God’s ability at work–at work for us, in us and through us, even though we do not deserve it.
My spiritual son, Rev. Patrick Wleh, writes:
“Grace is not in search of good and clean men whom it can approve. On the contrary, grace does not approve goodness; only Justice does. But rather grace is in search of the condemned, guilty, speechless and helpless, whom it can save, sanctify, and glorify…Where grace is at work, every other law is disabled!”
Grace is at work when we are trusting in Jesus and not in ourselves.
“And of His fulness have all we received and grace for grace. For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.” (John 1:16-17)
Are you conscious of how weak and needy you are? Are you facing impossible circumstances? The grace of God is your answer. And His grace is available without measure through Jesus Christ, God’s Son, our Savior.

Thank you again Bishop and may the Lord continue to steer you through his words and may he continue to endow you with greater wisdom in spreading the word.
GRACE, “GOD’S RICHES AT CHRIST’S EXPENSE”, why should we worry anyway? When without his grace we can do nothing, but through and by his grace we can become more than conquerers, I thank God that I live within his grace.
I just asked my self this morning when I woke up, what more do you want Him to do before you really get this grace thing Rachel? God Thank You For Grace, IT is taking me through everyday, and the best part of it is I have to do nothing but receive and enjoy it. Thanks again Bishop , your blog always is on time even before I read it.
