Grace is the unmerited favor of God toward men. God gives to us freely what we do not deserve. Ephesians 2:5-9 states that “it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourself, it is a gift of God. It is not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s work—manship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works.”
Grace is blessings, kindness and favors that God gives to us. None of us deserve His grace but He gives it to us because of His love for us. Grace is a constant theme throughout the entire Bible. Luke 2:14 describes Jesus as having the grace of God upon him. John describes Jesus as full of Grace and Truth (John 1:16).
In Genesis 6:8, Noah is described as finding favor in the eyes of God. In Exodus 3, Moses finds favor with God in the Burning Bush. Samuel finds favor with God and also with men in 2 Samuel 2:26. In 2 Samuel 15:26, David recognizes the unmerited favor of God in his life. David wanted to build a sanctuary for the Lord.
“To each of us, grace has been given as God apportioned it,” Ephesians 4:7. Christ has also given us the gift of the Holy Ghost. Ephesians 4:6 states that each of us has been given a gift to serve one another. The gifts are not given to us for selfish endeavors. When we use our gifts we should be speaking the very words of God, saying what God says. When we use our gifts to serve, we should serve and do as God would do. God brings to each person what they need depending on who and what they are in need of. All gifts should work for the service of God.
God’s Grace brings us salvation (Ephesians 2:8-9). Every believer is saved through the same faith, given to us by Jesus, who is both Lord and God of us all.
The suffering and resurrection of Christ has redeemed man’s entire body from the curse of sickness. God has provided healing for his body, righteousness for his nature and peace for his mind. God desires everyone to live a long healthy life. God says in 2 Corinthians 12:9: “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” When your body is weak and needs strength, go to Him because it’s His Grace that is your cure. Sickness and mental/emotional torment are how Satan attacks us physically and plants disbelief in our minds. Christ has rescued us from the curse of sickness and from sin. He bore it all in His body for all mankind. Receive the Grace and favor of God today. Don’t reject what Jesus has done for you and I.
Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the Law (Galatians 3:13). ‘Redeem’ means to deliver or buy back. Under the old covenant, when someone broke the law, a curse followed. Sickness and disease were part of the curse (Deuteronomy 28:15-61). Grace is Jesus giving us freely what we do not deserve. He gave his life so that we can be healed, saved and delivered from sin, sickness and our enemy (the devil).
The curse of the law consisted of poverty, sickness and spiritual death. As Christians, we live under the new covenant of Grace. Anyone who is a part of the New Covenant should not remain in physical, spiritual or emotional bondage. What was stolen from us by Adam’s sin is restored through Jesus.
When Jesus lived on the earth, He went about doing good, healing all those who were oppressed by the devil (Acts 10:38). Jesus was sent to heal and to deliver us from all destruction. Jesus is still doing this today. He does not come in the physical form to heal you, but he dwells in the person of the Holy Spirit and in the body of all believers.
