Grace and Knowledge

RedOrangeFlwrs

2 Peter: Chapter 3 verse 18

But grow in the grace

and knowledge

of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

 To Him be Glory both now and forever.

Amen.

Isn’t it lovely to think that we can grow in the grace and the knowledge of our Lord Jesus.  Today as we learn and read more about Him let us ask God Our Father to allow us more grace to really know His Son Jesus, our Saviour, more and more.  Amen.

From the Book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R.Larman.

I wonder if we have grace and knowledge – how are we using it?

*****

The Lord has given us knowledge – however it is good for us to try and increase that knowledge day by day. We can do that by learning something new i.e. a new craft or by reading we can really expand our knowledge.

It is good to have a vision or a dream of something that we would like to do –

so we will need knowledge to bring that to fruition.

As for Grace – well we need grace to have patience with our family and friends.

We need to have Grace that only The Lord can give us as we continue to live in  this world with Peace and Love that we have when we walk with Jesus day by day.

With Grace and Knowledge we can give Glory to God our Heavenly Father for all the Blessings that he gives us day by day.

Even if there is only one small thing in your day today that you are happy and content with  –

that is a small start to be thankful for.

Grace today

Galatians: Chapter 1 verse 3

Grace and peace to you

from God our Father

and the Lord Jesus Christ.

*****

It is lovely today to know the grace and peace that can only come from God and Jesus.  If you have a spare minute right now, sit and receive that wonderful peace, remember – ask and you shall receive.

Taken from book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R. Larman.

*****

Have you ever just sat quietly on your own to try to receive that peace that comes from God our Heavely Father.  It is worth a try – after all what can you loose when you find time to sit without the tele on or the radio on or any of the family around.

It can seem quite odd

if you have never sat quietly

on your own

but it is worth a try.

If you are indoors – sit in your favourite chair, if you are outside maybe in  the garden find somewhere to sit on your own.   Wherever you decide to be – look around where you are and begin to feel the peace in your heart even if it is only for a few minutes.

Try to sit a little longer, all the chores of the day will not run away, they will still  be there for you to do.  So treat yourself to a bit of quiet time to receive the Grace and Peace of The Lord.

Have a lovely Day.

Grow in Grace

Snowflake.colouranimation

2 Peter Chapter 3  verse 18

“Grow in grace

and in the knowledge

of our LORD

and Saviour Jesus Christ”.

*****

One of the best ways to grow in grace and knowledge of God is to read The Bible>  Getting things second hand is not a good idea and really dosn’t get us very far.  So…..if you are not reading your Bible, Today is a very good time to start.

However if you are reading your Bible daily, then I pray that you will continue to grow in the knowledge and grace of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen. 

The above is from the book ‘Drink from the Cup’ by: J.M.R. Larman.

*****

The rest of verse eightteen says  …  To Him be Glory both now and forever! Amen.

So that should make us think  –  what are we doing even today to give God our Father in Heaven any Glory.

Well what can I do?  Not too sure about that  – I could try to be good!  (Well there is always hope!)   I could be nice to some one.  I could tell someone about the Gospel of Jesus.  I could phone or write to someone to bless them if they have been waiting a long time for me to keep in touch.  I could cook someone a nice meal…..we are supposed to show hospitality to people especially if we do happen to be a Christian.

All the above would give Glory to God if we actually manage to do any of them.

One of the best things I suppose is to make sure that we read something in the Holy Bible each day.  It does not have to take long even a few minutes would be better than none at all.

Best of all is to have a special time to sit with God each day – to read His word and thank Him for the Salvation that Jesus has allowed us to have.

Let us soar on Eagles Wings to Heavenly places while we sit and pray – especially The Lords Prayer – I am sure that would be acceptable to God if you are not sure how else to pray.

* May you Grow in Grace each day as you sit with our God *

Amen.
