The Attributes Of God [3, 4 & 5]

Tuesday 25th February 2020 Devotion

Scripture:- Psalm 102:1-28

Topic:- The Attributes Of God [3, 4 & 5]

Text:- Exodus 3:14

3. Grace:
Grace is the bestowal of blessing unearned or unmerited. When we speak of God’s grace, we speak of those wonderful gifts (e.g., salvation) that no man deserves but God grants anyway.
There are several methods by which God demonstrates His grace to us. There is what we call “common grace” — this is that grace that God shines upon the elect and the wicked alike.
This kind of grace is God’s bestowal of non-eternal blessings (e.g., health, prosperity, good weather, the Sunday comics, in fact, life itself is a gift of common grace to the non-believer since sinful man deserves nothing but death. See Genesis 2:15-17; Romans 6:23.
He does not have to give life to any one, no one can demand it from Him, and He can take it when He pleases. The other kind of grace is that special grace which God demonstrates on those whom he inexplicably chooses to be His people. Just as He did with national Israel. See Deuteronomy 7:6-8.
God chooses His children not because they are more powerful, wise, intelligent, charismatic, pious, handsome, but simply because that is what He wanted.
This grace is amazing for it relies not at all upon us, but solely upon God and His will, rather than any service or good we are capable to render. This grace also causes us to throw ourselves at the feet of the Lord in praise and rejoicing for His pleasure in granting us salvation.

4. Holiness:
Holiness is synonymous with God’s total purity and separation from the rest of creation. Holiness is a moral purity, and different from Adam’s holiness, God’s is eternally incorruptible.
This holiness so sets God apart from fallen man that in his natural state, no man may approach the incorruptible God (for man is tarnished, dirty, and corrupt, and True holiness cannot bear such) — this is evidenced by the special commands to those who would approach God. See Exodus 3:4-6; Isaiah 6:1-6.
God’s holiness is one of the primary reasons why the advent of Christ is so incredible: it allows men who were once unable to come before God the ability to kneel before the throne of God and worship forever and ever. See Revelation 4:9-11; 5:14.

5. Immanence:
Immanence describes a God who is at hand, working through the minutiae of the lives of His creation to produce a love for and enjoyment of His Word, His Gospel, and Himself.
God does not sit back and merely observe a creation which He set in motion millennia ago; He is present and actively participating in His world.
This gives the believer rest in the knowledge that there is no place or situation that is too far to be under God’s protecting hand.

Prayer Point:- Oh Lord God, You are good and Your goodness is for ever, bestow upon me henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Have A Wonderful Tuesday!

ALTAR CALL

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
