the covenant of Grace !!!!

Post by Guest on Sun Sep 06, 2015 7:37 pm

As believers we can be so thankful for the Grace of God... what is Grace?.. Grace is undeserved favour, what we should receive from God is judgement for our sins but Praise the Lord he has a better way, Through the atoning blood of Jesus we are sinless before God.. and the free gift of righteousness is our, not our righteousness but the righteousness of Jesus is our covering...

now isn't that the best news ever...

What is an example of "undeserved favour"?
Can't think of one scratch

any time we would normally get a positive response to something we did wrong rather than the negative response we should have got..

maybe you have been unkind to someone and they bring you a gift...

if you bless or give presents to people you know don't really like you, you are living Grace, which is very difficult to do, I try but i have been more of an eye for an eye person in the past and old habits die hard...

Nope I am always (or try to be mostly) kind and forgiving to people and can honestly say, I find it very hard To hate people - much to the annoyance of some friends and family!
I rarely get overly angry - irritated is more my style lol
And presents to,people I know don't like me?? Loads of times! Free tarot readings, my time and money sometimes - I see them as needing or lacking something.

I don't know if that's grace but that's what I'm like.

that's brilliant, I would like to be like that but i'm the vengeful type i'm afraid, I am really bad with people i hold dear, anyone hurts or offends them i tend to get like a mist that takes away my better judgement..lol but I am a work in progress and I trust Jesus the author and finisher of my faith to sort me out..

That's fair enough as long as you know you're doing it and try to rectify it

You don't do yourself any favours on here you know!

Tact is not your forte it it?

I'm afraid you are wrong, they come to me to pick a fight and I am happy to fight...

if you mean dancing round on eggshells while others say what they like no I don't do tact...

the biggest problem here is the inequality ... but that has always been the way...
