Two things Divine Favor will do in you – Glory & Grace

His favor was extended to us to bring us out of our misery into an abundant life that transcends our imagination.Sadly, many believers function on the first step of favor and never enjoy the fullness of the second dimension of God’s favor in Christ. A Prophetic duality The Prophet Isaiah, by the Spirit of God, saw the lives of those who will be touched by the favor of God. The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to ………To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.

(Isa. 61:1-3 KJV) Unmerited Favor For Broken Humanity – Glory & Grace. Grace is God’s unmerited favor.

Unmerited Favor For Broken Humanity – Glory & Grace

Almost everyone in the Christian circle knows that or at least should have known that. It is hard to capture the entirety of the grace of God in a statement of definition. But unmerited favor stands the test as a good overview of the grace of God. A Missing Piece Doubtless grace is God’s unmerited favor. The favor in “unmerited favor” is referring to God’s favor, meaning the Father’s favor.

Jesus Christ is the revelation of God’s grace to man. For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. Our Unmerited State It will be prudent to go no further in exploring divine favor without first laying the foundation that the favor of grace is indeed unmerited. Therefore, I say this and testify in the Lord: You should no longer walk as the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their thoughts.

God's Favor is yours here and now! – Glory & Grace. God’s favor for all men, everywhere has come to us.

God's Favor is yours here and now! – Glory & Grace

The Lord stands with open arms of love and grace to welcome disenfranchised, broken humanity to Himself. And when we come home, He has a banquet feasts of precious things ready for us. God’s favor is real You might be tempted to thing divine favor is simply a religious cliche to make us feel better as believers. Favor is real and has tangible effects both on our present life here and now and on the life to come.

God has given to us a literal story that is a picture of divine favor to all men. One day David asked, “Is anyone in Saul’s family still alive — anyone to whom I can show kindness for Jonathan’s sake?” So David sent for him and brought him from Makir’s home.His name was Mephibosheth1; he was Jonathan’s son and Saul’s grandson. Mephibosheth bowed respectfully and exclaimed, “Who is your servant, that you should show such kindness to a dead dog like me?” Legalism in Church-An Archenemy of Grace- Glory & Grace. Legalism is attempting to earn salvation, God’s blessings or His favor by trying to obey God’s laws.

Legalism in Church-An Archenemy of Grace- Glory & Grace

I would encourage you not to focus on the terms “legalism” or “legalistic” because they can easily be perceived as an attempt “to label”. I have been legalistic before as a Christian and would never have wanted someone to use that term on me! As you read this article, seek to understand the concept or the idea of legalism as given to us in the scripture, rather than focus on its definition or the terms themselves. What is legalism?

The term “legalism” in itself is not in the scriptures, but the idea is screaming so loud throughout the scriptures that you can hardly pretend not to see it. The heart and soul of legalism, as it applies to the believer in Christ today, is trying to earn God’s gifts by focusing on doing His commandment or law. “Earn” This is receiving what you deserve. “Two men went to the Temple to pray. “Doing”
