Be Encouraged By Grace

33 And with great power the apostles were giving their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all. ~ Acts 4:33

The Apostles were giving their testimony about the resurrection of our LORD Jesus Christ, and grace was upon them all. But I want you to notice; it was not just grace, but great grace that was upon not just the apostles, but upon them all. And through that grace, mighty miracles, signs and wonders, and mighty acts of healing were being performed by the believers.

All the believers enjoyed the grace or the favor of the LORD. I want you to understand that grace or favor is not the same as mercy. Mercy is defined as NOT getting what we deserve. Grace, or favor, is defined as getting what we do NOT deserve.

The favor, or the grace of the LORD, can and will open doors. It can and will heal the sick. Save the lost. Raise the dead. Perform signs and wonders. It will perform miracles. Because of the LORD’s Favorable Grace, the first-century Church moved in power. Without grace, or favor, there is no Holy Spirit, and thus, there is no power.

It is because of this –Favorable Grace– that we can sing:

Let the weak say I am strong
Let the poor say I am rich
Because of what the LORD has done for us
Give thanks

It is not by man’s might; it is not by man’s power; it is not by man’s intellect, but by God’s grace and God’s favor. When we enjoy the Favorable Grace of the LORD, we don’t need anything else.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Be Encouraged By Grace.
