Grace Abounding

“But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.” 2 Peter 3:18

The divine tapestry, the assimilation of grace, works, assurance, and faith.

WHEREVER you see sin in the world, or in your own life, remember that there is a way out – God made that way through His only begotten Son.

All sin can be overcome and so repent and be refreshed and REJOICE because where sin is, God’s grace can abound much more:

“Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:” Romans 5:20

Is such not a principle in God’s economy of dealing with men? The Bible repeatedly foretells that in the very last days of this sinful age, temptations and sin would abound:

(in the final days) But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” 2 Timothy 3:13

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;” 2 Thessalonians 2:3

“And because iniquity shall abound (be epidemic), the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.” Matthew 24:12-13 

Gross and epidemic homosexuality is revealed by God as the last stage of apostasy before great judgment falls on a nation (Romans 1, etc.). The great “falling away” is well under way and escalating exponentially, and yet God’s grace (regardless of whether or not we personally realize it) is abounding yet more and more in His saints throughout the earth to save and bless men. His original intention and purpose in the Gospel (Good News) has not changed. More than all Christians combined, the One who bled on Calvary deeply desires to make His beautiful salvation effectual to the multitudes He died and raised to rescue. The Father doesn’t want any to perish but that all would come to repentance and be saved (1 Tim. 2:4; 2 Pet. 3:9).

“Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.” Acts 3:26

As we know, if there is no repentance, there will be no grace granted (Luke 13:3,5, etc.). Repentance is essential for the reception of salvation and divine blessing. This message is no attempt to ignore such a non-negotiable, divine requirement. What did our LORD tell us to do when we see all the evil of the last days that He foretold would come to pass before our eyes? Jesus instructed us to:

“Look up” Luke 21:28 

While specifically enumerating the events which would transpire in the final days of this age, ushering in His return to earth, the Rock of all ages said:

“And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” Luke 21:28

“Your redemption draweth nigh (close).

    – Jesus Is Coming Soon.

The next time you become overwhelmed at the site of all the sin abounding around you or in you, remember that God’s grace does “much more abound.”

May our LORD grant us the abounding grace to thank Him for His keeping power and joy to live pleasing to Him in all things, and to communicate the saving Gospel to others.

“Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.” 1 Peter 1:5

“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.” Jude 24

When God’s love is truly made perfect in us, we will speak His truth that He might bring precious lost souls home (Eph. 4:15; Rev. 22:17).

WHEN Paul spoke about his work, his labor in the LORD, he added and attributed it to the grace (divine fuel, empowerment, ability) of God (1 Cor 15:10).

“But I simply can’t overcome” is something we hear. Through Christ alone, we’ve been given “Grace (divine enablement) to help in time of need.” 

“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16

Whenever God commands something, He also provides the grace for it to manifest in your life – as you are submitted to Him (James 4:6-10; 1 Peter 4:10-11). His grace, divine enablement, operational power, is always sufficient to bring His perfect will to pass in our lives and to bring us through any and all difficulties, grueling seasons we may find ourselves in! (2 Corinthians 9:8; 12:9-10; 1 Peter 5:10) 

Do you have more faith in sin than you do in the saving grace of Christ to give you the victory over it? That is a perverted faith! Flip your faith! Repent and renew your mind, asking God to forgive you afresh and thanking Him aloud for His all-sufficient grace He provided through Christ’s perfect sacrifice on that cross! (Romans 6:14)

Are you indicting God by saying His grace, His divine enablement is NOT sufficient for His perfect will to be manifested in your life?

God will Raise you up – when you lay it all down! (James 4:6-10)
