A startling Grace

“For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.”

Grace is the express manifestation of who God is, the greatest aspect of His love unto mankind, regenerating man’s heart and restraining one from sin. It is manifold – muilti colored, rich, sufficient and abundant.
The adulterous woman was caught to be stoned to death yet Jesus the perfection of humanity didn’t find her guilty and as surely as Jesus spoke, He heard directly from God, surely God engulfed her with His undeniable great measure of grace. Man has never been any better, caught in a state of sin, nevertheless, God has embraced us with His immeasurable gift of grace.

⁴They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.⁵Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

I can imagine her face stooped low and filled with shame and guilt, even forsaken .Worse still is her fellow sinners were shaming Her, nevertheless, God in His holiness deemed her not guilty, how startling is His amazing grace. Startling because the law said; Stone them to death, the relligious men said; stone her to death but God said : let Him that is without sin be the first to cast a stone!! Herein Jesus expressly shows that the law is not the answer but He is the ultimate solution for sin, it is His grace , a grace that is life sustaining.

John 8:5
Now Moses in the Law commanded us that such should be stoned to death. But what do You say ? [Deut. 22:22-24.]

It is grace that receives a leprous man regardless of who He is and makes Him a perfection, a grace that clothes you with garments of righteousness in your naked filthy state like Adam and Eve, the kind that forgives and redeems and calls us out of darkness into His marvelous light. It is this grace that sustains us , a grace un deserving yet given freely. For without this grace , our life would be worthless and lost.
2 Corinthians 5:21
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

Prophetic Utterance:

The life I live now is a testimony to the love of God and the grace He has extended to me. I thank You Lord for your grace, for it is life unto lifeless Man.

Guiding Text:

Galatians 2:20-21
²⁰I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.²¹I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
