Day 27 | G.R.A.C.E. - Principles of Empowerment 30-Day Devotional

Friday, October 27, 2017 Bryan Hudson 0 Comments

Grace began with redemption through Jesus and separation from self righteousness. 

“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9

Let’s consider the empowering qualities of God’s grace using each letter of the word.

Give: Share what God has given you to give. What I have I give to you. 

Reach: Go for more than business as usual. Move outside of yourself and into a life of challenge and adventure.

Accept: Embrace the new things God is doing in your life. Accept the difference that grace brings to your life. Live the lifestyle of people called by God to change their world. Matthew 28:18, “Go into all the world and make disciples.”

Clear: Remove the old behaviors to make room for God’s best ways. In order to learn and build something new, you have to clear out the old. In the past, we recorded and sold cassette and VHS tapes. When compact disc technology came along, we transitioned from tapes to CD’s. We had to clear out the tape duplicators and cassette poly boxes. Today, we use digital media and live streaming. The early church disciples cleared away the old powerless religious bonds. The religious leaders had gone so far away from God that they could not rejoice in the miracles Jesus performed. 

Elevate: Giving, Reaching, Accepting and Clearing lead to an Elevation or “Great Grace!”

Reflection Question: How has grace empowered you?
