KEY SCRIPTURE: Romans 11:6 KJV “And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work”.
Dealing with men on the terms of God’s grace has been God’s original intent for His creation. Before Adam and Eve were created God had provided everything they would ever need. He gave them total authority over all of His creation. He dealt with them on the bases of His grace. The law was man’s choice. When Adam and Eve decided to listen to the devil because they wanted to be like God and be in charge of their affairs, they lost the grace of God. The law is man using his efforts to please God or to achieve all that he aspires to have. When they were under grace God did everything through them. When they left God’s way, they had to use their effort.
Now under grace, Jesus takes over a man’s life and expresses Himself through Him. He fills him with everything that He is and has. Many Christians are struggling because they have not understood all these things about the grace of God. By grace God does not see you as Mr. A or Madam B. He sees you just like His Son Jesus. The name you carry in the realm of the spirit is Christ. You have the same audience before the father as Jesus. (John 17:23) Angels come to assist you Just like Jesus. Heb 2:11 KJV “For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,” The phrase, “are all of one” means we come from one Father. In actual fact Jesus has duplicated Himself in every Christian.
God does not condemn you because the same Christ who has taken over your body was the one who was condemned and died on the cross, and so He can’t be punished twice. When you act against the word, it means you refused to let the Christ in you to function. If you persist in this wrong way devils will take advantage of you. As a Christian you don’t have sin in you. You don’t have sickness reigning in you. These things work only when you fail to acknowledge the power and life of Christ in you. Everything about your effort is works and everything about Jesus functioning in you is God’s grace. Turn every attention from yourself to Jesus. Give Him all the praise and the glory. Never stop acknowledging His presence power and glory in you.
Jesus is alive in me. He manifests His glory, power, righteousness. His presence attracts God’s favor provisions and victory. Indeed, it is all about Christ.
John 17:23 KJV” I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me”.
