God’s Grace :)

Wednesday 2 Corinths 9 8

 

Have a Wonderful and Blessed Day!!! Make All Grace Abound Toward You!!!

2Corinthians 9:6 But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.
2Corinthians 9:7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
2Corinthians 9:8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:
2Corinthians 9:9 (As it is written, He hath dispersed abroad; he hath given to the poor: his righteousness remaineth for ever.
2Corinthians 9:10 Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness;)
2Corinthians 9:11 Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God.
2Corinthians 9:12 For the administration of this service not only supplieth the want of the saints, but is abundant also by many thanksgivings unto God;

Grace giving is a wonderful liberation from things and from circumstances. Instead of things possessing you, you start to possess them. Instead of money and things controlling you, dictating to you your actions, you begin to control money. You develop a new liberty and freedom.
God is able to give us complete sufficiency so that we can abound in every good work. However keep in mind he will not reward us if something is putting us in bondage, if it is taking over out life. He wants to reward us for our good works but we need to being things to his honor and glory.
One way God’s approval of the Cheerful giver:
2Corinthians 9:7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
When we give in a way that is cheerful and not grudgingly, we are rewarded. If we are complaining, or bragging about our giving we are not going to be rewarded as we would be when giving with a cheerful heart.

“God is able” is the [frequent] promise of Scripture so that God’s people will place their confidence in Him:
Romans 16:25 Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began,
Ephesians 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
Jude 1:24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
The Christian should depend upon the fact that God is able. We especially need to be reminded of this when we are called to believe or do something contrary to the natural or worldly thinking. Giving to the natural mind is lessening our store not the way to increase it. To believe giving increases our supply it is necessary to believe in the power, providence and promise of God. God is able to accomplish the truth that scattering seed increases the supply of [true] seed. When biblical teaching is contrary to our fallen nature’s reasoning we need to remember that God is able.
The might and power of God is so capable that it is an easy matter for Him to bless in abundant measure every cheerful gift. God is able to give “all grace, all-sufficiency, for all things, for every good work.” Notice that even these staggering universals are not enough but the word abound must be added to reveal some of the jam-packed erupting outpour that can gush from this fullest of fountains. It is all grace and it is abounding or overflowing grace.
Now what does “overflow all grace into you” mean? Grace is a packed word and is used here to sum up a whole truck load of unmerited blessings which come to believers through Jesus Christ. The primary use of Grace in the New Testament indicates the unconditioned, undeserved, spontaneous, eternal stooping, providing, pardoning love of God, God is able to make all grace abound toward you. All grace comes from one act of grace, the bestowing of Jesus Christ or if you like the new life through Jesus Christ.
God not only gives all grace but gives it abounding or over flowingly. He does not give it scantily, like He opens but one finger of His omnipotent hand that is full of gifts so as too let out a little at a time. His hand is opened wide to all who met His conditions. This fountain is always abounding, pouring itself out with God’s ceaseless, inexhaustible love, unmerited and free.

God is able to cause your riches to abound that you may have an abundance for every good work. The intent is that God will give us the abundance so we are able to perform every good work. Through our liberality God is able to cause our resources to abound in every good work. These resources depend upon God but are conditional upon our cheerful faithful stewardship. As we let God’s abundance flow through our life to others we enable God to pour out even more into us so that we can be involved in even more good works. He does not simply give so we can be enriched but so that we can abound in enriching others through our good works.

Do any one of use deserve his grace?
Have anyone of us done anything so great we should expect his rewards?
Are anyone of us the apple of his eye that he is bragging of our goodness?
Nobody should have answered yes to the questions above.

However he is so Great, Loving, that he gives us bountiful Grace, and died on the cross so we may live.
Blessed be God for the gift of His enabling grace, which inclines some of His people to give. Blessed be His glorious name for all eternity for Jesus Christ, that inestimable gift of His love, through whom every other good thing, pertaining to life and godliness, are freely given unto us, beyond all expression, measure, or bounds.

 

GRACE, GRACE, GODS GRACE
Marvelous grace of our loving Lord,
Grace that exceeds our sin and our guilt!
Yonder on Calvary’s mount outpoured,
There where the blood of the Lamb was spilled.
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within;
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Grace that is greater than all our sin.
Sin and despair, like the sea waves cold,
Threaten the soul with infinite loss;
Grace that is greater, yes, grace untold,
Points to the refuge, the mighty cross.
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within;
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Dark is the stain that we cannot hide.
What can avail to wash it away?
Look! There is flowing a crimson tide,
Brighter than snow you may be today.
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within;
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Marvelous, infinite, matchless grace,
Freely bestowed on all who believe!
You that are longing to see His face,
Will you this moment His grace receive?
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within;
Grace, grace, God’s grace,

Love and Prayers
