The Grace and Mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ…

30 Dec

Hebrews 4:14-16, “Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”

Grace in Christianity is defined as unmerited divine favor on the behalf of God. This gift comes to those who are repentant of their sins and accept the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for the remission of the sin nature that exist in every man and woman created. Grace comes solely based on the fact that we as children of the Most High God are not perfect creatures as we were originally created to be, and Jehovah knowing that while in the flesh sinful man cannot live a perfect life according to His will. The Lord knows this based on the Son Jesus Christ who walked among mankind for over 30 years feeling the same temptation that we feel in these mortal bodies. Jesus was tempted by Satan in Luke 4:1-13, but never sinned due to the fact no sinful nature was present in Him due to His Divine Nature. This makes mercy readily available to those who ask for it. The Lord knows how each and every person was born in sin and shaped in iniquity, knowing we had no choice when we came into this sinful fallen world. In Christ perfect mercy His gives His power to Us who believe the power to overcome Luke 10:19 reads, “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” Jesus speaks here that no Spiritual infirmity will come our way that we do not have the power to overcome in His name. This includes Satan, Fallen Angels, and Demonic Spirits that influence our Earthly matters to steal, kill and destroy Humanity. This Divine power is the same Jesus Christ used to resist the Devil and to heal the sick, but more importantly submit to the Will of God which is the ultimate goal for every Christian. At times when we fail the Lord and fall short of His standard of Holiness know that His mercy sustains Us. Jesus knows the difficult task we have in this life and grants those who believe the Grace to make mistakes and also the power to overcome them. God is omnipresent in all of our situations, and hardship’s comes to perfect the Saints for Jehovah’s purpose. In short, Grace is the ability to be forgiven and the Mercy of the Lord is to overcome. Shalom…
