SECURING GOD’S GRACE IN OUR LIFE
NOVEMBER 29, 2022 / DAY 2#
John 10:10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly.
Billy Graham, Chuck Templeton, and Bron Clifford were three extraordinarily gifted youngsters who delivered a sermon together in front of a large crowd in 1945. They shared the same vision to multiply their church and its people. But in ten years, only one of them remained in ministry. Chuck Templeton left the ministry in 1950 and chased a career in radio broadcasting. He told the world that he no longer believed in Jesus and had become an atheist. Bron Clifford started to leave the ministry in 1954. He lost his family and health due to alcohol addiction. Clifford died when he was 35 years old. Billy Graham, on the contrary, remained in God’s grace and is now known as a respected American evangelist and leader. He was called Mr. Clean because he was never involved in money, woman, politics, or any other scandal.
We know Saul, a man who received great grace and love from God at the beginning. Saul came from the Benjamin tribe with a history full of God’s grace and love. His life was filled with special grace after special grace, and he was ultimately anointed to become the King of Israel. It is a pity that Saul lost God’s grace, and he also lost everything else. His life ended in misery.
Today’s devotion is reminding us not to lose the grace of God. Don’t be afraid to lose everything else, be afraid to lose God’s grace. Secure the grace tightly, leaving no room for the devil to take it away. Please keep it in a way that will stay forever in our life.
SECURE God’s grace in your life and LEAVE NO ROOM for the devil to STEAL it.
1. Which grace of God do you think the devil wants to steal from your life?
2. Why is it important to keep God’s grace in your life?
3. How will you secure God’s grace in your life forever?
“Father, we thank You for Your abundant grace in our life. Remind us to be alert and secure it wholeheartedly. Because we long to be living in Your grace and love forever. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.”
