The River of Grace

Grace: 

"...that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work…. being enriched in everything to all bountifulness." (2 Cor. 9:8, 11)

The gospel of grace is the revelation of the abundant provision of God in order that you might have all sufficiency in all things (spirit, soul and body), that you may abound unto good works, that you would be enriched in everything for all liberality.

We can liken grace to a Niagara Falls of love, strength, provision, forgiveness, acceptance, deliverance, peace and joy.  It flows continually.  It is always "yes" and "amen!"  

“Whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.” (Jn. 4:14) 

Grace reproduces itself!  As you drink of God’s grace (living water), it becomes a well of water in you!  Jesus goes on to say, 

“If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’” (John 7:37-38)

Your thirst not only is satisfied, you become a fountain of living water for others!  That is grace.

"And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified." (Acts 20:32)
