As for Grace…

As for “Grace” Extending “Grace” 

By, the grace, of what or who?  What is grace? Who is grace? How, does the grace, you say, help me?  What is the big issue about grace? Is this grace thing real? Who gets the grace? Is grace for me? Is grace a woman or a man? Is grace a personal thing or a corporate thing? Is it a secret thing or public?

 

If you are a church goer, then you have probably heard the word or an explanation for the term grace. But if not then the word grace, may be the name of a female or some form of an emotion. It could even mean sparing the rod. There are so many assumptions for grace. But, “Grace” can surprise you!

GRACE is, or could be, a concept, a theme, perspective, a promise, a leisure or maybe a God Given inalienable right. Is it earned? Is it bought, gained or given?  Is it time or is it a I owe you?  It depends on what you believe. Beliefs can be right or wrong. But biblically there is only one right. God’s right. I am speaking Biblically.
So as a human what do you believe about grace?

Biblically speaking here it is:

Grace is sparing me from something dreadful. But according to Zondervan, “Grace is being released to us, to release us from the dominion of sin, for believers.” Believers have more pull with God than the sinner.  Zondervan also states that “Grace is portraying a compassionate response from one who is able to change the situation or to help someone in need.
Grace can be demonstrated by humans, but true grace is given by God. Grace is not a human. Grace is an action. Grace has been given to us all, from one extent to another. Grace helps you by sparing you from the destructive hands of satan. Grace also help you find your way back to God, if you get off track. Without grace you would not be given the opportunity to get it right with God. The big issue about grace is that Grace is a pardon! Pardon for the terrible sins we commit. When we hear the word pardon we think of prisoners. No, pardon is the only thing that is giving us grace. Grace is real, if it was not, then the car that ran the red light, might not of missed you. Grace is real, someone was dying in your family, and someone prayed for that person to be healed, and suddenly they were healed, that’s grace.  You lost something, someone found it and returned it, that was grace. A bully stops bullying you, that’s grace.
When you did something wrong as a child, and you know you should have gotten it, but your parents just talked to you, that’s grace.  America with it many sins, has not completely been  destroyed, that’s grace. A person commits murder, but given life, that’s grace, especially when they know they should have gotten death. God’s grace is like love so big, that it  deletes all the mistakes, you can’t  even see the wrongs anymore, because grace makes them all right and forgotten. We all should be dead, but God has given us grace to live and get it right with Him. A fool that loves to sin, and is not quickly destroyed, that’s grace. I hope you kinda get the idea. This thing called grace is nor male or female. Grace is no secret, it is offered to us all. It’s not favored to any one person, or any one race of people.
 God discriminates, but grace does not, and grace is extended to us by God. How is both capable, discrimination and grace?
Here is something that may interest you!

THEY WERE FULL OF

“Grace” really is amazing. What is “Grace” to you?

GRACE IS EVERYTHING!

The Face of Sin……UGLY!

Whenever I write I am talking to myself first! I am a dirty, ugly sinner saved by Lord Yeshua’s grace. I am ugly, hateful, sinful, and a no-body that, The Messiah Lord Yeshua just happens to save, one day or one night! I am no better than anyone else. Yeshua has made the difference!  I am still looking to Yeshua to be my Father, forever! I am still asking Yeshua my Lord to forgive me for my ugliness, my sins and my shame.

What are some of the ugliest thing you ever ran across?  As for me… myself!

Yeah, we all define ugly differently, so your definition of ugly probably won’t be my definition of ugly. When I say ugly I do not mean the physical appearances of anything. For a moment let’s overlook the outer appearance of all things.  In other words, ugly could be defined as something hideous, something sickening or the worst evil.  Hideous as a group of demons plotting to do the work of satan, or even ourselves carrying out satan plans.  All the conniving schemes of the unholy one, all, can cause trouble. The deceitful ways of the demon nation is CONTAGIOUS!  When I called myself ugly, I mean without the superior love of Christ Jesus within me, I am ugly. I was ugly until I came into the knowledge of  Yeshua The Christ. So if we do not invite our Christ within our hearts, we are all very ugly.  Some of us are still ugly, even as we profess to be Christlike. Yes  I know money can but a facelift, but if the heart is ugly, you are still ugly! I know if we could blot out our own sins we would, but I am so glad Christ our Lord can. I know if we could commit hideous crimes without fear of getting caught we would. Some can, but you can’t with Christ. You can’t get away. You may pay to get away, but you will  reap. That makes the playing field level, if we could mask the ugliness and purchase our way out. Where where would we all be? Some would be comfortably settled in their new bought lives, while others have to ask Christ for help to be made brand new. But Christ does not take cash, credit or debit cards.  Our Messiah God Yeshua love us all so much!

Let’s see what Mr. Webster and others says about the word ugly:

Ugly A negative word often abused to make fun of somebody for not being “attractive”.

When in reality nobody is ugly it all depends on who is attracted to what kind of person. Usually after a long time frame of being called ugly the victim loses confidence. It is a word to eagerly use out of anger and should not be said to or about anybody. Sometimes the word ugly is also used for no reason.

What is ugly?

What is ugly?

What do you think about ugly?  Is ugly just physical or a train of thought, or maybe a mistakes, or deranged mind, or a hideous laugh, or a lie you told, or the lies you live, or hiding the truth, or being in debt, or a pair of shoes, or feeling lonely, or being unfair, or being broken, having ugly ways or just anything you believe to be considered ugly? Yeah it’s ugly….

This is Ugly…..Ugly is:  nothing to like, nothing to brag about, nothing to smile about, nothing to share, nothing to do, nothing to hope for, nothing to believe in, nothing to smile about, no one to believe in, no one to trust in, nothing to plan for , nothing to die for, nothing to live for , nothing to be proud of, nothing to fight for, nothing to gain, nothing to lose, nothing to stand for, nothing to toast to, nothing to have faith in, nobody to tell your story too.  Nothing  to spend money on, no money to spend, goal, no future, nothing to eat, too much too eat, no hill to climb, no hand to help you down, no choices, no decisions, no leaders, no followers, no friends, no foes, no pain, no gains,  no burdens, no enlightenment, no one understands you, and you understand no one, now all of the items listed above is UGLY….

 So when I say “ugly” I basically  mean the Ugliness” inside the heart.. Not our outer appearance, but the thing inside of us that determines everything else. The part of us that causes us to have a self-centered concept that causes the ugly. There is so much more to the ugly side of our human nature. It can be so terrible at times that we don’t even like ourselves, but we are constantly reminded that Yeshua loves us.

So ugly is a distinct part of satan’s plan for us, so we live it, when we don’t repent. Ugly is the stink of living in the ugliness of sin. When we don’t change or ask Yeshua Our Father to help us change, then this ugliness becomes normal and a bad habit. We began to not see the difference and it becomes all we know. The ugly take over our heart and we began to do ugly things, that feel normal. It begins to feel good, it begins to feel  savvy, it begins to feel like a meal after you haven’t eaten all day. It taste so good, you begin to wear it well, so well that you can’t tell the difference. So you’ll have hell trying to get rid of it. You  will almost have to have surgery, to get rid of it. You’ll need a heart transplant.( joking) But it will take a major, drastic lifestyle change to get a new heart. Sometimes you might have to die, I mean, die to self.  Take inventory, analyze yourself, seek as to why we are the way we are. Where does that leave us? Totally dependant on Christ Our King.

I am learning, no one can be  as just as Christ towards us. Some of the PEOPLE you LOVE the most can be the ugliest towards you.  Some of your bosses on your jobs  can be the ugliest towards you. Some of our children can be the ugliest towards us. Some of our Pastors can be the ugliest towards us.  Some of our wives or husbands can be the ugliest towards us.  Sometimes our parents can be the ugliest towards us, but… People can offend us and you see their ugly sides, but Christ…  Sometimes we offend people and they see our ugly sides. Sometimes even our own  lives can be the ugliest towards us. The list goes on…

But I know I can look to Christ to remove my ugliness. Ugliness is temporary, if you really want change. So what is the ugly truth on sin…SIN itself.  Ugly hearts causes ugly sins and an ugly sin nature to manifest itself, and we need help to change.  So you are not ugly, just the sin heart, that makes you so ugly!!!!
