Day 16 meditation relates to the message of grace that is throughout the Bible.
The warning by Paul throughout his writings was for the believer to, “Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines . . . .” He added, “. . . [but] be established with grace . . .” (Heb. 13:9). The full gospel message contains the power within its revelation to accomplish the work and will of God. The gospel is the power of God unto salvation. The amazing grace of God is the provision by which man is delivered.
If the believer can hear the fullness of the gospel message of the Bible, he has a manual of amazing grace. It is as sure as the righteousness of God to do what He says He will do. God stands by His word and gives amazing grace for the fulfillment of His will. The fullness of the gospel message of the Bible is the manual of grace for the believer.
Day 16 meditation is the amazing grace that God has provided for mankind.
In the great revivals at the turn of the twentieth century, the phrase “full gospel” evolved to become almost synonymous with the Pentecostal movement. The distinct definition of the phrase largely depended upon the individual or group of saints who used it to identify their particular theology. The general application of full gospel usually related to a belief in the Pentecostal experience. The message that was preached did not stop at the conversion experience. It included the need to go on to the full blessings of the amazing grace that God had provided for mankind.
Regardless of what modern preachers restrict the term, the thought behind the phrase full gospel is a tremendously important truth for modern-day Christianity. In fact, the writers of the New Testament seem to imply that the reason for most of the problems of the church in the first century, as in this century, was and is a failure to preach the fullness of the amazing grace in the gospel message.
