Grace Unspeakable, by Pastor Victor Olobaniyi
TEXT: 2 Cor 4 vs 8 – 18;6 vs 1-10;11 vs 21-33.
Today we shall be considering a character in the bible that enjoy abundant grace which is Paul the Apostle.
The salvation of Paul in the first instance is grace unspeakable, considering the part he played in the percussion of the early Christians.
Paul was tagged by some people a hired assassin, that even after being born again, the disciples were sceptical to open up to him, knowing who he was before associating himself with the body of Christ.
Abundant grace was bestowed upon Paul in so much that he was considered to have worked more than the other Apostles as it were 1 cor 15 vs 9 – 10, Eph 3 vs 8.
Grace turns labour to favour, Grace turn losers to Victors, Grace turns failure to success, lack to abundance, grace turns curses to blessings, the natural to supernatural.
In a nutshell, grace is all we need to actually become who God wants us to be, that is in conclusion you cannot become who God wants you to be without God.
Paul said in Phil 1 vs 21, for to me to live is Christ and to die is gain.
In Acts 17 vs 28a. For in Him we live, and move and have our being.
It is only God that can give grace, grace is completely beyond the humans.
However, God has not only promise His grace, He has promised us abundant, more than enough, sufficient grace. What an awesome God.
He gave Paul so much abundant grace that the bible records that He performs unusual miracles through the hands of Paul .Acts 19 vs 11- 12.
May the abundant grace of the Lord as promised not elude any of us in this season in Jesus name.
We receive grace for breakthroughs and permanent victory from this season and henceforth in Jesus mighty name.
The bible says out of His fullness we have all received…….. John 1 vs 16.
