There’s a counterfeit grace being taught lately. A not-so-amazing grace presented as a blanket to cover up sin, an eraser, a net to catch you when you fall.
These definitions work great for people who want to be worldly and are looking for a sermon to back them up, but it’s not the true biblical definition of grace. Ultimately, connecting grace to sin will hold you back from your destiny in God!
Grace is a power. If you’re living with a call to do great things for God, grace is the empowering God sends to get it done. It’s the help God sends to unable people to step into their destinies.
In the Bible, grace is used as a cultural word, not a “church” word. It was a reference to the system of patron and client prevalent in the day.
A patron would keep his eye out for a good client – someone who showed the potential to do great things, but lacked the ability to see it through. They would take them under their patronage and give them the help to live out their potential for greatness.
It was favor for unable people. And it obligated the client to honor and serve the patron out of his gratitude.
When the true meaning of grace is understood, it can be an amazing thing!
God is looking for unable people with a desire to do something great for Him. As the Great Patron, He sends the help you need to live out your potential and fulfill the call on your life. Your role in return is to honor Him. Serve Him. Give Him glory.
So, what about you? What could you do with a little help? Start talking to the Patron and let Him empower you. Let His amazing grace enable you to do the great things you were created to accomplish!
Yours for revival,
