Good morning all you blessed of God! God is so amazing and He loves us so much that He sent Jesus to the cross to pay our sin debt! That’s right a debt we owed He paid so that we could be fully restored to our original design!
Is there anything we can do to improve on His perfect and finished work of redemption? Absolutely not! Then why do we keep trying to finish what Jesus already finished? By self efforts that is, He gave us his Grace, removed the law, nailing all the requirement of the law to the cross (Colossians 2:14) and handing us the completed victory.
His plan for our success is so simple, that’s why its called the simple gospel, as a mater of fact Paul once was concerned that the Corinthians would complicate it that he said in 2 Cor 11:3 that he feared that …their minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. His simple plan is this, Mark 4:20 But these are the ones sown on good ground (good ground is simply grace ground) those who hear the word, accept (believe) it, and bear fruit: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred. Wow, how much simpler can we get, hear the gospel of grace, believe it and bear fruit! Believing in His finished work is the key.
According to Colossians 1:22 (Mirror Translation) He accomplished this in dying our death in a human body; he fully represented us in order to fully present us again in blameless innocence face to face with God; with NO sense of guilt, suspicion, regret or accusation; all charges against us are officially cancelled. Praise the Lord! Enjoy the victory Jesus obtained for YOU today!
Good morning to all you disciples whom Jesus loves!
The revelation of His love and forgiveness removes the self effort! Legalism is works righteousness, grace is resting in what Jesus already “has done” for you at the cross.
When we find ourselves working to please,( or self efforts), we need to recognize that we are trying to “do” what Jesus has already done. This is usually a result of two things. One we are questioning Gods love for us, and try to achieve and even please God by our self efforts. And two we have forgotton that we are once for all and forever forgiven of ALL our sins, 2 Peter 1:9 For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed (forgiven) from his sins.
Meditate today how much God loves you, and how He demonstrated his love for you by going to the cross and taking your punishment so you could be made innocent/forgiven.
Persnolalize this to yourself His love is intense for “you”, he is not mad at you, he is mad about you! Read Isaiah 53:4 & 5 regarding what Jesus suffered at the cross because of His love for you!
The very fact that He gave us His grace (unearned, undeserved, unmerited favor) again demonstrates His love for us!
Join us at the Country Steakout for Grace Without Measure Ministries Bible Study on Monday’s at 6:30. Evan & Sue
It is so exciting to see lives transformed, and be uplifted by the good news of God’s grace! Monday night church was no exception, we saw God’s goodness through Jesus finished work!
Romans 8:32 He who did not spare His own son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us ALL things.
If God did not withhold heavens best (Jesus) from you, He will NOT withhold anything from you!
If your realize how forgiven you are (the centerpiece of the gospel) and don’t condemn yourself nor let anyone else condemn you, then you can have it ALL!
What do you think about all the time? Is it the turmoil around you that consumes your thoughts? Trying always to fix other peoples problems? The economy? Political problems plaguing our nation?
Luke 10:41 & 42 And Jesus answered and said into her, Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about MANY things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part which will not be taken away from her.
What did Mary chose? She chose to focus her attention on Jesus the solution to all lifes problems, instead of lifes problems. That may even sound somewhat selfish, but it is not. We can not fix one single persons storm of life until we first calm the storm in our own heart. Our hearts storm can only be calmed by fixing our eyes on, and beholding Jesus like Mary did.
Tune into the frequency of Jesus finished work today, and realize that God did not spare His very best, how will He not with Him also FREELY give us ALL things! Now that’s radical grace!
May God richly Bless you today, and remember to stop by at the Country Steakout Monday 6:30 or Wednesday at 7am (breakfast) for some more radical Grace. Evan & Sue
Good morning everyone! God loves us wonderfuly and perfectly, so much so that Ephesians chapter 2 verse 5 says (amplified) that “He (God) gave us the “very” life of Christ. Himself, the “same” new life with which He quickened Him, for it is by grace (His favor and mercy which you did not deserve…”
After reading this and knowing the same new life Jesus has we have, we could boldly say, “in Him we lack nothing”. Any other teaching is unscriptural and just keeps us busy looking for something we already have. Let me repeat that, the very same life Jesus has, God also gave us! The devil trys to keep us looking for something we already have! He does this by constantly accusing and condemning us, and if we don’t know we are forever forgiven, then his accusations take root.
“Breaking News” we are innocent because Jesus bore ALL our sins at the cross.
The law makes us self occupied Grace makes us Christ occupied! Be occupied with Jesus and rest in His finished work today, because he has made His word known in is full consequence.
Colossians (Mirror Translation)
1:25 God entrusted me with the revelation of this mystery as a responsible administrator of His household, so that in my ministry to you I will make the word known in its full consequence.
1:26 This mystery was concealed for ages and generations but is now fully realised in our restored innocence before Him.
Praise the Lord we are forgiven, innocent, and the same life of Jesus, God has graciously given us! That’s His intense love and Grace (unearned favor) for us!
Have a great day! We hope these periodic notes have been inspiring to everyone. Evan & Sue
Good morning to everyone, on this cold wintery day. What a day to meditate on the goodness of our Father!
This is a good day to commerate what Jesus has done for us at the cross of Calvery. Isn’t it amazing love! God loves you with such intensity that He planned a salvation plan that would complete all the work and labor, restore everything back to us, and then tell us to enter into the rest (rest in this finished work he completed for you). And ALL you have to do is believe, WOW that is truly amazing grace (unearned undeserved unmerited favor of God)
John 6:33 NLT The true bread of God is the one who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.
Partake of this bread today in communion, remembering what Jesus did for you at the cross to give you your freedom back. And remember we do this in remembrance of Him and what He did for us! We are so use to examining ourselves and our shortcomings, don’t do that focus on what he has done for you. He has redeemed you, you are seated with Jesus at the right hand of the father, your healing supplied, your needs met all because of Jesus obedience at Calvary.
John 6:35 NIV. Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me will never go hungry, and he who believes in Me will never be thirsty.”
Meditate on how righteous He has made you, not on where you have missed it. That my friend is the difference between righteousness conscientiousness and sin conscientiousness.
May God richly bless you today! Join us sometime for some more radical grace at Grace Without Measure Ministries Bible Study/Church at the Country Steakout, Fort Morgan CO Monday at 6:30 pm or Wednesday 7am Evan & Sue
It is very exciting to see lives transformed as we study Gods Word together. This Monday night was no exception. You are loved and highly favored by our Father!
Being under grace means being constantly under Gods supply. It means being conscious not of the need, demand or crisis, but of His supply to us.
The essence of grace is supply. See yourself under His grace by seeing yourself under the waterfall of His supply.
God’s grace is always supplying healing, protection, wisdom and provision to you. And the more you are conscious of it, the more you will walk in it.
Don’t allow mixture to rob the revelation of His grace from you. I have seen Christians begin to get ahold of this life changing revelation only to continue their routine and end up sitting under messages of “mixture” (that is mixing law and grace) only to find themselves bound again, Paul said: Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made you free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage. Gal 5:1.
It feels so good to be free, by His grace, don’t let it get clouded and confusion come back in like the Galatians did, becoming enslaved again. Condemning yourself constantly. You see we condemn ourselves having forgotton that we are forgiven ALL our sins. 2 Peter 1:9. Thinking we must ask and confess our sins to receive forgiveness, finding our way back to that yoke of bondage.
You are His beloved and completely and always forgiven, and righteous (innocent) don’t accept anything less than that. The finished work of the cross. God richly bless you today, Evan & Sue.
