And now I commend you to God and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up and to give you the inheritance among all those who are sanctified. Acts 20:32 English Standard Version.
We have talked a lot this week about GRACE, the Person of Jesus. Grace is extremely important and it is important for you to know why it is important. When Paul was leaving the brethren at the church at Ephesus, he left them with the statement that you see in the above mentioned scripture. The word commend there can be replaced by the word commit. So Paul said, “I commit you to God and The Word of His Grace. He also pointed out two things that The Word of Grace can do.
- Build you up.
- Give you an inheritance among those who are sanctified.
The Law does just the opposite. It tears you down with guilt, sin and condemnation. It robs people of their inheritance because when people try to live by the law it brings them back under the curse. Romans 6:14 tells us that sin has no dominion over us because we are not under the law but under grace. Focus on God’s Grace which is and is in Christ Jesus. Don’t try to live by the law because The Word has already made a declaration about the law.
For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes. Romans 10:4 English Standard Version.
Christ is the end of the law to everyone who believes. Believe in the Grace of God and receive what He has for you.
Have a great weekend!!!
All the Blessed to you!!! Shalom!
