Titus 2:11- For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men.
Grace given freely to all men! Grace that pours out for all, irrespective of who we are and what we have done. Saul was one apostle of the Lord who through Grace was forgiven and anointed as the new man in the name of Jesus and became Paul. Through the Lord’s grace he became one of the most powerful and anointed disciples of the Lord to spread the word to all mankind; to Jews and Gentiles. Due to his Grace we are able to face each day and walk through a plethora of situations with battles won and battles yet to win. We are saved through his blood and we are resurrected in his image. Everyday is a call for us to walk in spirit and truth; crush the scorpions under our feet and recognize the sheep in wolves clothing. The armor of righteousness being our breastplate; we are to walk this narrow road and carry our cross. The blood of the Lord is precious and so each of us need to enable ourselves to recognize the power of his blood and at the same time have the courage to walk through each storm. The storm of rejection; of hopelessness; of unemployment; of pain; of insecurities; of sickness; of disappointments and at times death itself.
For the Grace of our Lord is much more then all of these and so apostle Stephen was stoned for doing and proclaiming what he knew was the truth until death.
