Encounter With Jesus-If God Is For Us….

October 20th, 2015

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Connection, today’s Encounter with Jesus examines His abundant grace.

Romans 8:31 asks the question, “If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all-how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?”

Sometimes, people wonder where God is, or why He seems so distant. The truth is that God has spoken of His love to us when He sent Jesus to us. The death of Jesus on the cross was the offer of God’s grace to humanity, saying that our sins can be forgiven, and our relationship can be restored to God through faith in Jesus’ name.

In reality, we have run away from God with every sin that we ever committed. Woven throughout the Scriptures is the picture of God pursuing His people. He sought us out for relationship. He seeks to bless us, not to harm us. He is for us, not against us. How will we respond to His abundant grace? Jesus invites us to follow Him.

In saying yes to that invitation, we have the opportunity to enjoy His friendship and Heavenly treasures forever.

A daily connection with Christ gives us security in the arms of God’s grace.
