The Relationship of Grace

Exodus 33:19 (NIV)
And the LORD said, "I will cause all my goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim my name, the LORD, in your presence. I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.

Here we find the elements of God’s grace… Goodness, Mercy, and Compassion; all in the name of the LORD because His Will, wishes it to be.

Another way of looking at "His Grace" is to see it as a part of “His Will”, as it concerns us. It’s the part of it that is unconditional. His Grace carries no strings. There is nothing demanded or commanded of us for it. We don’t have to promise to do anything, and there is no passing of judgment associated. When you look around, there is quite a bit of free stuff that God has provided for everyone. None of it is denied based on our actions, good or bad. That in itself shows how "His Grace" is at work to help us all.

Isaiah 45:18 (NIV) For this is what the LORD says—
he who created the heavens,
he is God;
he who fashioned and made the earth,
he founded it;
he did not create it to be empty,
but formed it to be inhabited—
he says:
"I am the LORD, and there is no other.

This Earth and all the material within it, was fashioned for the people who would inhabit it… That’s us. His action is extended because of His will for relationship, with us. His Grace forms the foundation of the relationship that God would intend to share. By design, we are instilled with favor in order that we might display the wondrous glory of our creator. It’s His way of giving us the incentive to turn towards “His Righteousness”; an act of choice that hallmarks His greatness. An act of which, on our part, also makes certain the bond of that relationship; formed between ourselves and God. By choosing Him, we acknowledge that Greatness, and we display for others; That Glory.

Hi Matt Thanks for stopping by our blog and leaving a comment- I am curious as to how you found us.

ENjoyed reading your blog entry- God's grace is so awesome and the more awesome I realize it and desire to bask in that Grace- the more like Him I become not because I have to but because He is flowing through me!

Thank You, and God Bless.

When I was a boy in my father's house, still tender, and an only child of my mother, he taught me and said, "Lay hold of my words with all your heart; keep my commands and you will live. Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or swerve from them. Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.

Won't you join me. Together we might make a difference.
