On MONDAY, we were asked a question, “Do you know Jesus?” Jesus is the author of Grace. You can’t claim to have grace or have received grace if you don’t know Jesus. This goes beyond what you have heard people say about Him or what you have learnt in church. Who is He to you? Is He the one the church worships or is He the one you worship? Has He moved from being the Lord of the universe to being Your personal Lord and savior? If not, forget about abundant grace this month. The first step to knowing Jesus is accepting Him as your Lord and savior. If you are yet to do so, turn to the back pages of this book and say the salvation prayer there.
On TUESDAY, we were told that He did it all. When He was about to give up the ghost, Jesus said “It is finished.” This means that all the requirements for salvation have been accomplished by His ultimate sacrifice. There is nothing you need to do now that Jesus has not already done. Beloved, what is it you need to be done in your life now? Are you under evil oppression and you want deliverance? Are you sick in your body and need healing? Are you depressed and heartbroken and nee mending? Are you poverty-smitten and you want a change of status? I have good news for you; JESUS DID IT ALL.
On WEDNESDAY, we were told that we have free access. Before Jesus came, the holy of holies where the presence of God dwelt was a no-go-area for the people of God. Only the high priest entered once a year. But when Jesus died, the temple veil tore and we now have free access to God. God has always been interested in man coming close to Him but He needed the sacrifice of Jesus to activate Grace to speak for man once and for all. Be bold and go to God for whatever it is you want. Hallelujah!
On THURSDAY, we learnt about Jesus; our High Priest. Jesus is our High priest in the order of Melchizedek. He did not just stop at paying the price on the cross. He went ahead to enter the heavenly temple where He is sited at the right hand of the Father as our High priest. Is it not wonderful that even when the accuser of the brethren thinks he has something to present as evidence against children of God, we have a high priest who stands in the gap for us before the Father. Oh that you would catch this! You have no reason to be disadvantaged anymore. No matter what you have done, come boldly to Him with a repentant heart. You will be washed and your life transformed. No matter what storms you are going through, come boldly. There is nothing you are going through that He did not go through in the flesh. Jesus can help you. He is your high priest.
On FRIDAY, we were told to Grow in Grace. Inspite of the ability of Grace to make a man, some people still don’t live in all sufficiency of good things. They still suffer what the world suffers. This is because they are not growing in Grace. If you are still at the level of grace you were in when you got saved, there are things you cannot access, not because they have not been made available for you but because you still don’t know what to do to access them. With increase in grace comes increase in knowledge. The more grace you live in, the more knowledge you have about your rights in Christ and what to do about them. You can grow in grace by spending time with the Word, walking in humility, serving faithfully, and so on.
