Seeing With Our Father's Eyes

The Grace Of Our Lord Jesus Christ

The Apostle Paul wrote this, For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, so that you through His poverty might become rich (2 Corinthians 8:9). This truth may lead us to think of other experiences our Lord endured that we might be blessed.

He became homeless that we might have a home.

He became a Son that we might become sons and daughters of God.

He was tempted just like us, that we might have a Friend Who

knows how it feels and can help.

He became a servant that we might be free.

He knew hunger that we might be filled.

He was the object of hate that we might come to know how much we are loved.

He was rejected that we might be accepted.

He was lonely that we might not have to be.

He was misunderstood that we might see how fully we are known.

He became Bread broken to feed our gnawing hunger.

He was the Water of Life poured out to quench forever our desperate thirst.

He was the Flame, burning but not consumed, to light our darkness.

He wept that our tears might be dried.

He was regarded as a criminal that we might be declared innocent.

He was plotted against that we might be provided for.

He was betrayed that we might be protected.

He was mocked, beaten, spat upon and crowned with thorns that we might see the

true nature and cost of sin.

He died that we might live!

He lives that we might never die!

Paul’s assertion was that we know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ…but do we? Is our grasp of His grace growing stronger? Consider the grace of our Lord Jesus. It is our hope…our purpose…and our motivation for life. Sweet truth. Amazing grace!

One thought on “The Grace Of Our Lord Jesus Christ

    Our beautiful Savior, trying to grasp his love for us all the time. His sacrifice for Our Good. Our Father thought and the action of Love for us sending His Only Son.
    “Living in Faith in Jesus Above (His Great Love) for the whole world. Being reminded of Him each Day so good for us. Maybe we will get it how much he Loves us as we are reminded all the time. I have a cross that I read each day about John 3:16. It sits on a shelf in a room I see it most vividly.
