Grace and Peace to you

Galatians 1:3-5

Grace and peace come to us from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

We seek grace and peace everyday. We want grace to live today as a joyful day, and peace to live through tough times. Grace is God's unconditional love to empower us to live this day. Peace is God's unshakable promise to keep us from evil.

All the strength and help come from God ultimately. Every breath and every fibre of muscles we use and every thought we think can only be exercised through the energy supplied to us by God.

Yes, every day, we live in grace and peace from God. As an unbeliever, we lived with common grace supplied to us by God. And when we became a believer, God came into us, and now resides in us. That's the grace of God. God Himself resides in us.

John 14:20
  • In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you.

Jesus willingly gave Himself for us. Jesus willingly died on the cross for us, even, for our sins, that we may be forgiven through His blood on the cross. His blood cleanses us from our sins.

His sacrificial death was also according to the will of the Father God who loved us, and gave His own Son for us.

This divine sacrifice and provision for the humanity was to deliver us from this present evil age. 

God, through His death, delivers us from the present evil age, and transferred us into His kingdom.

Colossians 1:13
  • He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son

To God, be the glory forever and ever! Amen!
