The Lord’s Grace — Watch this Video

Recently the topic of God’s grace has turned up everywhere for me.  I have seen it in my scripture reading, in songs, conference talks, and in this talk I am sharing with you. In the New Testament, Paul called God’s throne the “throne of grace.”   In the Old Testament, the Lord calls the place where he guides his people the “Mercy Seat.”  I believe the Lord is trying to convey as clearly as he can that as I take my troubles to Him, His position will be one of mercy and grace.

The knowledge that the Lord’s grace is sufficient to cover us, empower us, and save us,  is the heart of the gospel.   This is why the gospel is good news and what we seek in our own lives, share with converts, and discuss with our  family.

I have loved this talk by Brad Wilcox in explaining why we don’t give up, and why God’s grace is enough for us.   http://byutv.org/watch/49475abb-10d4-4f45-a757-7000b9945468

I have listened to it about 10 times as I do laundry and other duties because I want my life to take in God’s grace.  I also want my first and true response to others to be the same as the Lord’s response —  that of gentleness, mercy and grace, rather than judgment, criticism and blame.  I have found that as my faith in Christ has grown, so has my hope in His redemptive power.   I hope you like it as much as I do.
