Grace As God’s Riches At Christ’s Expense. Although, We Are Enjoying Free Salvation, It Cost Jesus His Life And Precious Blood On The Cross Of Calvary.
Good morning brethren.
You are welcome to the Arise, Shine of today’s edition in Jesus name.
Shall we pray
Our most high God, we bless Your name for counting us worthy to be among the living souls this morning in Jesus name. Accept our praises in the matchless name of JESUS. Amen.
This morning, we shall be looking at the
Topic: GRACE as GOD’S RICHES AT CHRIST’S EXPENSE.
Text: Isaiah 53:5-11
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.
He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
There is a say that nothing is free, there is no free lunch, not even in Freetown.
It is a popular saying these days that salvation is free, but is it really free?
Although, we are enjoying free salvation, it cost Jesus His life and precious blood on the cross of Calvary.
There are two types of riches ie God’s riches and the Devil’s riches. However, the scripture says, it is God’s riches that is free of sorrow. These God’s riches were purchased with the blood of Jesus. It means Jesus paid for them before we are born.
Let’s look at few of the riches of God.
Our sins has alienated us from God. Romans 3:23 says everyone, without exception has sinnned. Jesus who knew no sin was made to die in order to restore us back to the family of God.
The increase, growth and harvest we enjoy on daily basis is without sorrow or stress because Jesus paid for it with His blood.
The comfort and peace we enjoy today is as a result of His chastisement during His trial for the sins He did not commit.
Our healing, in fact our divine health was settled in terms of payment by the stripes that pierced His body.
Report says, He received 40 lashes that tore His skins and gushed out His blood and medically we learned that all sicknesses were classified under 39 headings.
It means Jesus paid for every sickness and for extra one in case an unknown sickness like coronavirus will surface.
He promised us power to lay hands upon the sick and to cast out demons among others in His name.
The most important of all is the salvation of our souls without which we cannot enjoy any of the above listed riches. No wonder Apostle Paul said, we are saved by His GRACE and not by our works. He paid for our salvation.
Brethren, what exactly is your goal that looks unachievable or unattainable? It is under the riches of God and Jesus has paid for it, hence, you must claim it using the blood of Jesus that was paid for you to enjoy it.
It is very simple. Come unto Him as He has invited you in Matthew 11:28 and surrender unto Him. Tell Him you can’t carry the load of your sins and He will give you rest.
Are you willing to come to Him this morning?
Do that now, even where you are and you will begin to enjoy God’s riches.
Let’s thank God for Jesus who came to be vicariously held liable for our sins and paid the death penalty for them.
Let’s thank Jesus for the supreme price He paid to enable us enjoy God’s riches.
Personally cry unto Him in your closet to claim the riches that His death has made available unto you.
Let’s begin to thank Him for the prayers answered.
In Jesus name we have prayed.
Have a wonderful day brethren and remain rapturable in Jesus name.
Thank You Jesus.
Jesus Loves You.
