Summary: The fullness of grace is in Christ. Don't separate them and Grace is given to fulfill the totality of the will of God.
GRACE AND NOT CRAZE
MAIN TEXT: Galatians 2:21
“I do not frustrate the grace of God; for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain”.
“Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear”.
Let us consider critically on the subject of grace from the simplest point of view, Grace means free and underserved favour especially of God. The unmerited divine assistance given to humans for their regeneration and sanctification. It is also a divine assistance in resisting sin.
Now what is craze? Craze means these things ; to weaken, to impair, to render insane, to derange the intellect of, insanity or to be an out law.
The grace we are studying today is not in any way human but divine. Man cannot imitate or naturally explain or understand it without the help of the Holy Spirit who has the ability to teach us all things. Grace was given to man so that man can take advantage of it over satan and his evil kingdom.
Without grace, salvation is impossible and it is grace that connects divinity to humanity and the fullness of grace came in the form of flesh-Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is the beginning and end of grace, he is grace in all. So when you live after the way of Jesus, you will walk and work in the fullness of his grace and not craze. Jesus was not an out law when he came to this world but he came to properly fulfill the law for man to understand and follow. So he gave grace to man as an ability to the fulfillment of the law or instruction of God.
Grace did not bring confusion because even the scripture writes that God is not the author of confusion. When you are living outside God’s will it means Grace is far from you.
GRACE IS THE ABILITY TO DO RIGHT AND NOT WRONG.
