Day 3: A Practical Definition for the Grace of God

Day 3 meditation is the supernatural enablement to be Christian by understanding a practical definition for the grace of God.

Christianity is abundant life: “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I [Jesus Christ] am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). Paul, in Romans chapter five, uses some very powerful words in regards to the Christian life such as peace, rejoice, glory, hope, and love (Rom. 5:1-10). In chapter six, he states, “. . . sin shall not have dominion over you . . .” and “But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness . . .” (Rom. 6:14, 22). Also, he proclaims, “. . . the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Rom. 6:23).

Day 3 meditation is moving from the realm of death and dying into the realm of life and living.

In Romans Chapter Eight, Paul says:

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? . . . Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (8:35, 37-39)

When an individual believes on Jesus Christ, he moves from the realm of death and dying into the realm of life and living.

Day 3 meditation abundant life on earth because Christianity is a free gift.

Paul states that the key to experiencing this abundant life is the grace of God: “For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace” (Rom. 6:14). Peter makes the same statement: “Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, according as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life . . .” (2 Pet. 1:2, 3). Paul summarizes the whole plan of salvation when he says, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast” (Eph 2:8, 9). Through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ all men, through no merit of their own, can experience life and living. Abundant life on earth and eternal life in the world to come are the free gift of God to all men who can but believe on Jesus Christ. Christianity is abundant life. Christianity is reigning in life. Christianity is a free gift.
