Grace means undeserved kindness. It is the gift of God to man the moment he sees he is unworthy of God’s favour.– D.L. Moody.
The saving grace of God through Jesus Christ is one of the many favours we often take for granted. As people become more accustomed to postmodern thinking, our knowledge about salvation also fades away. The Lenten Season is remembered not by the true essence of the even, rather seen as another holiday. Even younger generations think about lent as the days before their easter egg hunts. Let us look into the true meaning of the Lenten season.
Today’s devotional reading is from the Book of Psalm 90:17. Please, read our recent devotional from the Letter of Paul to the Romans 14:9: No Grave Can Bound The Sovereign Saviour, Jesus Christ
The Greatest Favour Of God
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? (Jeremiah 17:9), this is the state of each one of us. No, we are not good people for only God is good. And because He is good, He gave us the greatest favour one can have. God became man in the person of Jesus Christ. Moreover, Jesus had sacrificed Himself to save us from eternal damnation.
Jesus has the choice to step away from death. However, He is obedient to the Father’s will. The saving grace can be received as God’s favour by those who believe and put their faith in Jesus Christ.
Do Not Take For Granted God’s Favour
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8). God is the Only One who loves us even when we are not lovable and favourable. He showed this when He sent His Begotten Son to save us. And through Him, God will establish the work of our hands! (Psalm 90:17). This means our life will have significance for we will live it in service to our Lord. Accept Jesus Now.
So let us not forsake the favour God has given us. We should cherish it and work so others may see the work of Jesus Christ through us. Moreover, let us make sure that we let others know about the favour we received from God through Jesus Christ.
This is the time for your journaling. Reflect on these questions. Ask the Holy Spirit to test your faith and your walk with Christ.
Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? — 2 Corinthians 13:5 KJV.

Heavenly Father, we praise Your holy Name and thank You for Who You are. Thank You, Lord, for the revelation of Your Word to us. Grant us, Holy Spirit, the guidance and teach us in wisdom, understanding and fear of our Lord God. We pray, God, that by Your grace and favour You will give us strong faith, so we can bring glory to Your Kingdom. We pray that by faith, the light that shines in us will empower this world to have hope in what is yet unseen.
All these we pray in the name of Jesus Christ, the author and finisher of our faith. Amen
