SAVED BY HIS GRACE:
to LOVE & to CARE!!!

Introduction:
Did you know that -Salvation is man’s most pressing need, why…?

  • All have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory (Rom. 3:23).
  • The just reward for our sin is death and damnation (Rom. 6:23). 

We dare not ask for justice.  All we desperately need Mercy and God's Grace!!!

Text: Ephesians 2:4-9
"But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,  5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ  6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: 
7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.  9 Not of works, lest any man should boast”

Dearly beloved...BY Grace are ye saved, Not of works, lest any man should boast !!!

Unfortunately today, we boast, beat our chest and maximize every opportunities to the detriment of others... even the less privileged!

Did you know that we are saved to LOVE & to CARE for others?  
See what the Bible is saying:

  • He that oppresseth the poor to increase his riches, and he that giveth to the rich, shall surely come to want. - Proverb 22:16
  • He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the LORD; and that which he hath given will he pay him again. Proverb 1:17
  • True Religion is to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction and keep yourself unspotted in the world – James 1v27

Text: John 3v16
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life".

Why did the Lord Visited the House of Cornelius: Act 10 v1-31

  • He was a devout man, one that feared God with his entire house,
  • He prayed to God always and
  • He gave much alms to the people

What is the Secret of David’s Success!!!

  • A man of Praise
  • A Man of Prayer - Psalm 51
  • A Great Giver- He once said ‘I will not give to God that which costs me nothing’ 1Chronicles 21v23-25, He also initiated the Idea of building of the great Tabernacle  of Worship, He Provided the resources while  Solomon eventually built – 1 Chronicle 22v7-19
  • He is a Covenant Keeper, Now David said, ‘Is there still anyone who is left of the house of Saul, that I may show him kindness for Jonathan’s sake?’ - 2 Samuel 9:1.
   
   

Reason for Mephibosheth’s Lifting?
He had been living a wretched and beggarly life, but the good news is that he had a covenant with the king David by the reason of Jonathan.   Jonathan, Mephibosheth’s father, had made a covenant with David in
1 Samuel 18:1-4.

Now note:

Mephibosheth was limp and lame in both feet. 
His name means a dispeller of confusion and shame. 
He was living in Lo-Debar: which means a place of no bread. 

The king could have chosen to ignore him and allowed him to suffer perpetually but not David! So the King (David) Remembered HIM, Just like the King Remembered Mordecai... HE will remember you too!

I declare…the king of kings will remember you for lifting and caused a great visitation upon you and your household IJN He will cause you to operate under the Open Heaven IJN.

All the Sealed Heaven that has caused you to labour grievously, to struggled and dissipated so much energy and produce little…. God will roll it away like a carpet IJN.

You shall no longer work like an Elephant and eat like a Ant. For it is evil and vexation of the spirit. However, when the Lord has blessed you abundantly as he has promised; remember Ecclesiastes 12v 1, 13 and 14;  Matthew 25 v 31 – 46

Act 2 v 37 ...what shall we do?

Hebrews 13v1 - Let Brotherly Love Continue;

Revelation 2v5 ... Remember from whence thou art fallen, and Repent, and do the first Work...!

Matthew 28v18-20 ...Share the goodnews... the Gospel;

James 1v27 ...engage in practical love - visit one another and keep yourself un-spotted in this world.
