TOPIC: HIS GRACE IS SUFFICIENT! Part 5
Jesus is the source of the grace we need in our weakness. Jesus is the cornerstone. He is the ‘solid granite foundation’ (v.16, MSG). The apostle Paul (Romans 9:33) and Peter (1 Peter 2:4–6) see these verses as referring to Jesus. He is the one on whom the church of living stones is built. He is the one chosen by God but rejected by human being (John 1:11-12) whoever turns to Jesus will never be put to shame (1 Peter 2:4–6).
In summary, Beloved, you have got to depend on the grace of God solely. Mother Teresa wrote, ‘I don’t think there is anyone who needs God’s help and grace as much as I do. Sometimes I feel so helpless and weak. I think that is why God uses me. Because I cannot depend on my own strength, I rely on Him twenty-four hours a day. If the day had even more hours, then I would need His help and grace during those as well.’ Grace and truth comes from Jesus Christ and is poured out upon us when we come to the saving knowledge of Him. We have been justified freely by His grace. Grace is empowering beyond our human ability. Glory to God!
Prayer: Oh God my maker, thank you for your Grace upon my life. Amen.
