Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus Rom. 3:24
One of our standing and ever-winning secrets is the truth that we are God’s elect. We didn’t call ourselves, He called us out of darkness into His marvelous light (I Peter 2:9). Before we came to him, He was only confined to being our creator, at least He created all things; but when we became saved and redeemed, he also became a father unto us, we begin to enjoy the son-ship privilege (John 1:12), we also begin to enjoy the motherly care and love (Is. 66:13). God is all these and many more unto us.
Above all these, God stands as your judge over any case brought against you, Christ is your lawyer, always making intercession on your behalf (1 Jn 2:1). Job had no such opportunity, nobody to mediate and intercede for him; but you have the most celebrated advocate and the only legalised lawyer in the Supreme Court of heaven, faithfully and truly on your side. You can afford to be ever-confident. All these eternal benefits you enjoy are not paid for by you, you are enjoying the product of the blood-purchased grace.
Thanks be to God whose love towards us ceaselessly flows. He chose, elect and loves us unconditionally, not for our good works or perfection but because He himself is an embodiment of love (1 Jn. 4:8). Your acquired achievements will not make Him love you more nor will your shortcomings make Him love you less. It is simply unconditional (Rom. 5:6).
Friend, get this straight: you can’t over expect great things, nothing is too much for you to have, you are priced above gold. As a candidate of grace, you can afford to expect the best; great demand from life cannot be too costly for your gracious worth to afford. Attempt challenges as a candidate of grace, expect your career to turn out best, be sure of a blissful marriage, be rest assured of your health security; they are all part of the wonderful package of your inestimable worth. Accept the best life God’s grace offers; it is all you need to have your head above the storms of life.
Realization and acceptance of the working of this grace upon your life should strengthen and encourage you to go all out, not just to be the best but also be all that God intends you to be. So, I charge you to go out and blaze new trails as the candidate of grace that you are.
I end this with the prayer Apostle Peter ended his letter with in 2 Peter 3:18
But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory now and forever! Amen.
