Grace.

Grace can be defined as unmerited favour. It is when you receive something you did not work for. Your salvation is by the grace of God because you did nothing to merit it. When Jesus gave his life for us on the cross, with all the sufferings he went through, you did nothing to receive the salvation that came about from the shedding of his blood. (Acts 15:11; Ephesians 1:7)

It is by the grace of God that you are able to resist temptations and face the devil and his host of demons. The bible says in Colossians 2:15, “And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly triumphing over them in it.” What this means is that Jesus defeated tbe devil for your sake and displayed him infront of earth, heaven and hell. He did this so that you should not have to fight the devil but resist him and he would flee away.(James 4:7) Similarly, though the world is full of distractions that can lead to temptations and thus derail you from God’s plan in your life, you are able to live a righteous life by the grace of God. (John 1:17; Romans 5:17)

The Apostles were able to do many signs and miracles due to the grace of Jesus (Acts 4:33; 14:3). Paul’s aprons and handkerchiefs were used to heal the sick. Great men of God like Prophet T.B Joshua and Oyedipo David operate by the grace of God. (2 Corinyhians 15:10)

Any riches you have today is by the grace of Jesus.(2Corithians 8:9) Bible says he took away your poverty and gave you his riches so that you should prosper during your stay here on earh. I wish you all a nice day.

    My brother you are doing a good job with this blog and I glorify Jesus for leading you on this selfless endeavor.
    Notwithstanding I’d like to throw more light on this topic of ‘grace’.
    You must understand that grace has a two-fold dimension:
    the first that calls men to salvation is what you mostly described above, as in Eph2:8 and Titus2:11 and is the flat-rate non-proportional type as I would call it.
    Once inside the Kingdom of God however believers are encouraged to grow in Grace, this is the second dimension of Grace that is not unmerited; as such, merited as it comes with humility(James 4:6), cheerful giving(2Cor:7-8) and our depth in the knowledge and practice of the word of God(2Cor8:7). You would agree with me that the men of god you mentioned in your write-up did not just get up one day to become what they are today! they sure cooperated with God through their diligence, character, consistency and sacrifice-now that is the way to son-ship and we are all called to that.
    cheers.
