Hymn: Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing
The steadfast love of our Lord never ceases. His mercies never come to an end. They are new every morning, new every morning. Father, great is thy faithfulness O Lord, great is thy faithfulness.
Our Father, Lord God Almighty, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. Blessed be your holy name. We thank you for the gift of life, a new day and all its mercies and grace. Father we thank you for the gift of your son Christ. Father we are grateful for forgiveness of sin, for the precious gift of salvation and the privilege to be Your sons and daughters.
2 Corinthians 4:15
“For all things are for your sakes, that grace, having spread through the many, may cause thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God. —-”(2 Corin 4:15)
Good morning brethren, it’s another day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it. This morning let us just thank our Father for the grace we continuously receive.
Through the Christian journey we enter into, receive, confess, and abound in God’s grace. We always quote scripture and repeat our understanding of what grace is, and all that it bestows on us. These include:
Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
Hebrews 4:16 “Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
James 4:6 “ But he gives more grace. Therefore it says,“God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble”.
Quick reminder of learnings about grace:
▪Grace is God acting according to His own nature on our behalf. So, the act is always consistent with nature and word of God. Grace does not accommodate sin, but makes full provision for payment of sin’s penalty through the cross of Jesus Christ.
▪There is nothing we can do to cause grace to happen, or to make God obligated to be gracious.
▪Grace is sovereign and totally unconditional. It can act toward whoever it pleases, in any way it pleases. Grace can, and often places the most undeserving people in the place of greatest blessings.
▪Grace is always undeserved. Grace cannot act upon anyone who is either a worthy recipient, or able to do it themselves.
▪It is useless for us to try to earn God’s grace. There is nothing in us that can cause God to be gracious.
▪The recipient of Grace is forced to humbly acknowledge we are absolutely unworthy, unable of becoming worthy, and yet are blessed, not because of anything in us, but because of who God is.
Grace is so enduring and pervasive through all aspects and times of our lives, that we tend to take it for granted. Our text for today reminds us that grace should cause thanksgiving to God to abound. Thanksgiving for the grace we enjoy directly. The thanksgiving should also be increasing as we facilitate the spread of grace.
▪Father, I acknowledge Your Grace on my life and am grateful that I and loved ones are beneficiaries of Your Grace. (Exodus 33:19)
▪Father, I thank you for forgiveness of sin, salvation through the blood of Jesus, all your mercies, blessings and faithfulness. Please help me to always have a heart of genuine gratitude for Your Grace upon me and loved ones. ( Ephesians 2:8-9)
▪Father, I ask to be an instrument through which thanksgiving for Your grace will continuously increase. (2 Corin 4:15)
Thank You Jesus.
