Streams of Grace

Streams of Grace

I saw a stream bursting from the lush vegetation of a jungle. The gurgling stream splashed across and around stones, playfully diverted as it encountered fallen logs and branches. Looking at it invoked such feelings of beauty and peace.

          “What am I seeing?”

          “This is what it is to have faith enough to believe Christ has freely given grace. You see, the flow of grace and its peace and overabundance that it produces.”

          “But I want more for you. Do you want more?”

          The way He asked it made me feel like my response would have a monumental impact.

          I waited for my heart to still and my mind to cease spinning, trying to conjure up the full meaning of what the “more” could be.

          I said, “Yes.”

          I was then within the stream. The water, His grace, pouring out all around me, within me, and over me.

          “I desire you to participate in the distribution of My grace. At the cross, all was accomplished. I poured out the fullness of grace. My grace provides healing and salvation for all portions of you, your heart, mind, body, and soul. I seal your spiritual salvation at the time you choose me as your Christ.”

          “Actively participate in the distribution of My grace — My love to others. Then you will not just have the faith to see grace. But you will have the privilege of participating in showing My grace and love to others. And signs and wonders will follow you.”

“And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up serpents with their hands; and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.” (Mark 16:17-18, ESV)

Engage in Streams of Grace

***

          I’m sitting here pondering the cost.

          To actively go and speak of Jesus to people I know and those I don’t. I will need to give up a few things.

  1. Time.  I will need to surrender what I think is important to do with my time.

  2. Fear. I can’t let the enemy steal my resolve to participate with God and His plans.

  3. Entitlement. The belief that my life is my own.

  4. Old mindsets. Any old thoughts that keep me bound to living my life as I always had.

I’m not sure what this is all going to look like but, I know it will be invigorating.

Have you counted the cost? What will it cost you to walk out His grace to others?

What does the fullness of walking in His grace look like?

I don’t have the answers to these questions, but I will learn through doing.

Have you ever radically walked in grace and love? Did it look like refreshing streams of grace?

Prayer for you and me: Lord Jesus, we desire the fullness of Your grace that can only be obtained by giving it away. Let us walk in Your supernatural love to everyone that You have put into our lives. Give us that strength and even joy to endure through the difficult things that are to come. Thank You, Jesus, for Your streams of grace. Amen.

“For it is by grace [God’s remarkable compassion and favor drawing you to Christ] that you have been saved [actually delivered from judgment and given eternal life] through faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [not through your own effort], but it is the [undeserved, gracious] gift of God; not as a result of [your] works [nor your attempts to keep the Law], so that no one will [be able to] boast or take credit in any way [for his salvation].”  (Eph. 2:8-9, AMP)
