Topic: SEEK GOD’S GRACE

Bible Reading: Exodus 33:13-14

๐Ÿ“–13โ€ฆ.”Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in thy sight: and consider that this nation is thy people.
๐Ÿ“–14โ€ฆ.And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.”

Message:

๐Ÿ”ฅGod’s protection is what every human being seeks. Even irrational creatures like animals, seek this same protection of God which is called favour. But sadly, many humans seeking this gift of God, hardly find it because they haven’t received the prerequisite to it. In Genesis 6:8, Noah found grace in God’s eyes, and God protected him and his family with an Ark. Again, in Exodus 33:17, for God to also gift Moses and the Jewish family with his protective presence, he also found grace in God’s sight.

๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅThese show that for God to abide with us, we need to have his grace. This grace is sometimes referred to as unmerited favour, but this is not entirely true. By the principle of first mention in Genesis 6:8, grace was said to have been found by Noah. To find, means the finder must have been seeking what he found. In this case, God counted the good attitudes and habits of Noah as seeking. Just as the faith of Abram was counted by God for righteousness in Genesis 15:6. To verify this, Gen 6:9 unfolded the character of Noah. He was JUST, PERFECT and WALKED WITH GOD.

๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅFor God’s presence to go with Moses, he found grace in God’s sight (Exo 33:13-17). It wasn’t the whole congregation that found the grace, but only Moses. Just as only Noah found it, but it saved all his followers. To justify Moses to be qualified for the grace, God called him the most meek person that was upon the earth then (Num 12:3). This made God to speak to him face to face (Exo 33:11), and also knew him by his name in vs 17. Dearly beloved, why many believers misbehave in the faith today, is the mindset of grace being free. Note that, Paul by the Spirit asked us to work out our salvation in Phil 2:12. In same vein, believers should also seek God’s grace with the attitudes of justness, meekness, and perfection; because, it isn’t free.

SOULS ACTIVITIES:

๐Ÿ™Precious Father, teach me to seek and find your grace, which is a condition to receive your protection, in Jesus’ name.

๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™Heavenly Father, whatever service I render in your vineyard, count them as conditions to find grace in your eyes in Jesus’ name.

๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™O Lord, in as much as we are one bread in the faith, save us by the grace which you have given to our Church spiritual head, in Jesus’ name.
