The Word became a human being. He made his home with us. We have seen his glory. It is the glory of the one and only Son. He came from the Father. And he was full of grace and truth. John 1:14
God has offered us His truly Amazing Grace and it is fresh and, it is new each day. What God offers to us we need to offer to others, through the strength and love He supplies to us each day. We need to write these words within our heart and use God’s example to share grace with the ones we love.
First it is important to remember God gives us choices. He is not a God of control, He is a God who leads. There are many examples of His leading in His word and we need to follow His teachings in our dealings with others. We need to lead them, not control them.
Secondly, when God looks at us…He does not look at what is wrong with us. God looks at what is right and good inside each one of us. We need to follow in His footsteps by seeing what is right in our loved ones and stop focusing on what is wrong. Play to their strengths.
Thirdly, there is a dream inside each one of us and I believe God has given us that aspiration. We need to speak to that dream inside of our loved one. We need to encourage them…even when we don’t understand or agree with them, we need to build them up and help them to be all that He is asking them to be.
The last item I would like to speak to is an idea which was introduced to me during the sermon I heard last night. Jesus has set up an account with each of our names on it and in this account is His grace. Jesus advanced us His grace and we are allowed unlimited withdrawals from our account on a daily basis. We need to respond to His grace in order to be recipients of His grace. So, the next time you need grace for yourself or you are having a difficult time of finding grace within…go to your account of His infinite grace and make a withdrawal.
