Verse Of The Day : Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen.- Ephesians 6:24 (KJV)
LISTEN : Sincere relationship with Christ brings grace (favour). Anyone who maintain sincere relationship with Christ can’t beg for favour because favour follows such a person naturally. God owns the world and can command anything or anyone to work in your favour. Psalms 24 : 1 said, ” The LORD owns the earth and all it contains, the world and all who lives in it”.
However, when you estrange from God you disconnect yourself from divine favour. Though God’s grace is undeserved when it comes to salvation by faith through Christ; but He limits certain privileges to those who have accepted His only begotten Son Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. Only those who accept Christ are given the power to become sons and daughters of God, entitled to eternal life, divine protection, divine revelations, insights, divine provisions, divine health, etc. Beloved, when you truly identify with Christ, you will receive grace to be part of God’s family and enjoy the blessings thereof. Beloved, join God’s family today! Remember that those who love Jesus Christ in sincerity are truly candidates for God’s grace.
