Grace sessions 16


 

Rom 5:19 For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.

Let the gift produce the work. When Jesus died on the cross, He had worked and was fulfilling in obedience every work of the holiness and justice of God as required by the law of God written down by Moses. Adam sinned and fell short of the demand of God's law making us disobedient children, but Jesus fully obeyed God to His death and pleased God in everyway as a man. Now as we are man of flesh and children of God, the same obedience that Jesus worked as a man is freely ours just by faith.

He worked obedience to give us obedience as a gift. Receiving the gift of obedience by faith in Jesus who died on the cross makes us obedient children and works in us works of obedience that please God. You don't obey by self effort any more or by your own strong will, see Jesus the man of perfect obedience and you will please God in works as you already please God by your faith, rest, believe, receive and become a God pleasing Christian.

Ephesians 1:17-18  That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,

See yourself in Him.Just as a natural Father is so much pleased that his son looks like him, knows him and is so much interested in his business and wants to take responsibility over it, so also it is with our spiritual heavenly Father God towards us. God our Father has fully expressed His whole being through Jesus Christ His Son and given Him all things in heaven and on earth, so also He has done with us because we have become sons to Him like Jesus through Jesus.

Your Spirit has light of the revelation of God, your soul has eyes that look into this light to help you to see who God is, what is found in God and who you are in him. His calling means His specific identification with you as His child and that is your hope for this life. The word riches there means rewards/salaries/benefits/enjoyments of your inheritance in God.

The devil doesn't want you looking into the prosperous being you are spiritually and physically in God so that you walk distant from God and sad in a dark shade of ignorance. Dear Saint ask God to reveal Himself to you in all His goodness because He is an exceedingly good God...Grace, peace and kingdom riches to you.
