Do You Know This Grace?

For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich. – 2 Corinthians 8:9

Here, the Apostle Paul is talking about the grace to be rich. The apostle Paul was called the apostle of grace.  He came in teaching that God already had done it

Grace is not what you say over your food. Grace is a gift that says that God has already done whatever it is that you need Him to do. When you got born again, you were born into a prosperous family with an inheritance. As soon as you came into the family of God, all that God has, all that God can do, belonged to you.

Religion and religious rituals have taught us that our performance is what causes God to move on our behalf. But, grace does not require performance because it is a gift. The only thing you have to do for grace is receive!

Your faith is not trying to get God to do something, but now you use your faith to receive what God already has done.   You aren’t performing to try to twist God’s arm or show God how bad you need this.  Your faith, by revelation and by inspiration of the Holy Spirit, is acting on what’s already yours.

Why don’t you stop and receive?  Receive and say, “I know I’m blessed.  I know I’m out of debt.  I know Jesus paid for me to live the good life!”
