Grace wins!



1. The Word Charis:

In the English New Testament the word “grace” is always a translation of (charis), a word that occurs in the Greek text something over 170 times. Although primarily taught in most churches as meaning God’s unmerited favor, in secular Greek of all periods it is also a very common word, and in both Biblical and secular Greek it is used with far more meanings than can be represented by any one term in English Primarily.  -Easton’s Bible Dictionary

– Ever wonder why it is so difficult to grasp what the word grace means?  Ever wonder why we don’t hear that word very much?  Ever wonder why its definition is elusive?

I believe that grace is one of the most important concepts in the Bible, and the one word that the devil works the hardest to steal from us.

His grace is sufficient for us.  2 Cor 12:9

Abba Father, Give us a deeper understanding of the word grace and do not let the devil steal its meaning from us.  I look at the cross and I see grace.  Help me appropriate grace in my life.  Help me to be more gracious like Jesus.  Help me to know that in the end grace wins over everything else.  Amen


About lifevine

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
