GRACE & YOU

The subject and the message of grace is increasingly becoming very controversial and polarizing especially among modern Pentecostal and Charismatic Churches and Ministries. I believe in the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Grace is central to a fulfilling and productive Christian living; and Christianity is meaningless without the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

WHAT IS GRACE?

Some have defined grace as “God’s Riches At Christ’s Expense”. That’s powerful! Some have also defined grace as unmerited favour. That’s true! Others have defined grace as God’s willingness on our behalf. That’s also true! And if I may add, I’ll define grace as God’s enabling power. In the New Testament dispensation, grace is the ability we receive from God through faith in Christ to live the life that God intended for us.

Grace is not a new concept or revelation. Grace is the very heart of Christianity! When you hear some people talk about grace they make it sound as if it is new to the church. Ask John Newton, the writer of the famous song “Amazing Grace” and he will tell you about his encounter with the Grace of God as far back as 1748. That song was first published in 1799. John Newton wrote the words of that song from personal experience. According to Wikipedia, “John Newton grew up without any particular religious conviction, but his life’s path was formed by a variety of twists and coincidences that were often put into motion by his recalcitrant insubordination. He was pressed (conscripted) into service in the Royal Navy, and after leaving the service, he became involved in the Atlantic slave trade. In 1748, a violent storm battered his vessel off the coast of County Donegal, Ireland, so severely that he called out to God for mercy, a moment that marked his spiritual conversion”.

John Newton used the words of the song “Amazing Grace” to explain his understanding of grace from his personal experience, that forgiveness and redemption are possible regardless of our past sins and that we can be delivered from despair and eternal condemnation through the grace and mercy of God.

BEWARE OF FALSE CONCEPTS OF GRACE

There’s no doubt that in our time God has raised up and continue to raise sound teachers of the word of God, some of whom have profound revelation knowledge of Grace and are gifted in teaching the subject of grace with clarity. But we have also seen the emergence of a growing number of zealots (some of whom may be impostors) who are profoundly unskillful in the word of righteousness, trying to force a dangerous concept of grace on Christians and this is becoming a big concern to the body of Christ. Beware of men who hijack the Gospel of Grace, and turn it into what it is not! Any doctrine of grace that breeds carnality or promotes a culture of impunity and ungodliness is false doctrine and alien to the Kingdom of God. Thus the Bible warns us in Jude, verse 4: “for there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ”.

FIVE INCONTROVERTIBLE LESSONS ABOUT GRACE

The best way to correct or dispel error is to publish the truth. Truth liberates! It is for this reason I have decided to highlight the following incontrovertible lessons about grace. Though brief, it is my hope that it will help in setting the record straight on what grace is and what grace is not.

1. GRACE IS THE CURE FOR SIN.

Without Grace the sinner is eternally hopeless! Grace does not only save from sin, it also empowers us to live above sin. Our salvation is not the result of our own efforts, but God’s gift, so that no one can boast. How do we receive this grace? We receive it through faith, that is, by believing in Jesus Christ (Read Ephesians 2: 1-9).

2. GRACE IS NOT A LICENSE TO ABDICATE RESPONSIBILITIES, RATHER GRACE EMPOWERS US TO FULFILL OUR RESPONSIBILITIES.

Grace is not an excuse for reckless living! Some people have a false concept of grace, thinking it gives them a covering to do whatever they like even if it is contrary to the values and principles of the Kingdom of God. Anyone who uses Grace as a license to abdicate his or her Christian responsibilities is abusing Grace and has not encountered Grace (Read Philippians 2:13; 4:13).

3. GRACE AND ARROGANCE CANNOT DWELL TOGETHER.

God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble. People who carry Grace are usually humble people. To be arrogant and at the same time preaching Grace is profoundly embarrassing and a mockery of the Grace of God because it is not consistent with the character of Christ (Read 1 Peter 5:5,6).

4. GRACE IS A GOOD TEACHER. (Read Titus 2:11-12).

Grace teaches us to live right. Graces teaches us kingdom values. Grace teaches us to give up certain bad habits that can frustrate our spiritual life. Grace is a good teacher! It thus imply that a carrier of Grace is a student of Grace and must have a teachable spirit! No one has monopoly of knowledge. No one qualifies to teach others who assumes he knows everything and wants to teach every other person whereas he is never open to learning from others what he does not know! Paul the Apostle reminds us in 1 Cor. 13: 9 that “we know in part”. To grow in Grace, you must have a teachable spirit!

5. SOBRIETY, GODLINESS AND RIGHTEOUSNESS ARE THE HALLMARKS OF GRACE! (Read Titus 2: 11-15).

Grace can never lead you contrary to the principles, standards and culture of the Kingdom of God! Grace empowers us to live right and not the contrary. Grace promotes godliness!

    Having a voice like u in the body of Christ in times like this is very important my Bishop sir, because I have heard pastors preached things and rubbished a fellow pastor even here on the net. One said even the sins u committed today, God is not interested because He sees u in the light of grace not the sin. That it was ur flesh that committed the sin and not Gods nature in u.so go ahead. Won’t this return many to Sin? Pls sir I know we may not have much comments on this write up cos its not what many expected but the truth will always be the truth.thanks for coming out this way Sir. Any Massage of Grace that write off morals and Godly scriptural orders to me is misleading and not right.

    A times I do wonder why people say the message of grace gives licence to sin. Sir I believe “No man need licence to sin”…. Men sin from the beginning but grace is the cure to sin. And some believe just as you posted that grace is a new trend which is wrong!.. The problem with many folks is laziness to study and proper bible interpretation hence they just believe anything even if not scriptural. God bless u Sir.

    • Shorunke Akiniyi

      April 7, 2017 at 7:39 pm

      The concept of grace is a shift from our old mentality and mindset of sin to love rather than this struggle or license to sin that many are talking about. Its really immaturity. Grace came to show us the way to the heart of the Father which is LOVE. Thanks for this

    • Bishop Emma Omon

      Believers are products of what they hear. We must be careful how we present the gospel of grace to the hearers. Sometimes it appears some of us forget what the Bible says in 2 Timothy 3:16-17, that “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.”. The Amplified version is even more delicious. It says “All Scripture is God-breathed [given by divine inspiration] and is profitable for instruction, for conviction [of sin], for correction [of error and restoration to obedience], for training in righteousness [learning to live in conformity to God’s will, both publicly and privately–behaving honorably with personal integrity and moral courage]; so that the man of God may be complete and proficient, outfitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work”.

    Good work sir. but my question is,does anyone need license to sin? I believe that men sin because they are sinners by nature(born of the flesh),and the moment one is born again(born of the spirit) he or she now receives God’s nature (eternal life) and now led by God’s love to do the will of God. For it is Him that works in us both to do and to will according to His pleasure. more grace sir

    • Ayokunle Chris Ashogbon

      Truth sir, license to sin is meaningless as far as the encounter of grace is concerned.

      @Bishop Emma Omon well spoken sir,and I believe that it is the word of grace that builds up and give us an inheritance among those that are sanctified(Acts 20:32), especially if we know how to rightly divide the scripture…. Otherwise, the minister of the new testament may unknowly minister death instead of life(2cor.3:6).

    • Chukwu Okey

      April 8, 2017 at 8:40 pm

      What a powerful advice from the man who translated and produced the first English Bible in the 16th century, Miles Coverdale?
      “It shall greatly help thee to understand scripture, if thou mark not only what is spoken or written,but of whom,and unto whom,with what words,at what time,where,to what intent,with what circumstance, considering what goeth before,and what followeth after”
      In other words,he was saying that to understand the Bible we need to read everything in its context,we must not just read the Bible,but we must also rightly DIVIDE the word of truth.. Every Bible scholar must understand that the entire Bible was written for three kinds of people- the Jews,the Gentiles and the New Creations. Thanks sir.

    Everything written here is truth and is biblical but is not practical enough for a growing xtian.Every stage in xtianity requires a level of grace.You don’t become a man in a day,you start from baby till you become a man.It is your level of faith that determines your level of grace.

  19. Kenny Rovy

    April 7, 2017 at 10:07 am

    That was a nice teaching sir more grace and insight

    I want to say here that people that say grace give license to sin simply don’t have the revelation and the understanding of grace….grace is Jesus personified you can’t know Jesus(Grace)until God reveal him to you(Math 16:13-17)…
    Those that swim in sin and say they are under grace thats not grace thats bondage….people will keep misunderstanding and abusing the grace of God until they have encounter with Grace….
    may God reveal to us more of himself in Jesus name. thanks

    I want to say also those preacher may not be a false teacher some people simply misunderstand the teaching of some preachers on the issue of Grace..like most time when you preach radical grace like Paul people tend to say u are encouraging sin that shows a lack of understanding most churches where grace are preach some will have an encounter with the love of Christ and are consumed by that love to sin no more while some in that same church will castigate the man of God of encouraging sin while son will secretly be living in sin because of their twisted mindset about the pastor msg of Grace
    So until God himself reveal grace to his people the misunderstanding and argument will never stop.
    Every truth and understanding in the scripture stem from a revelation

    Thank you Bishop! Grace is Jesus and Jesus is grace. It is not a message. It is a person! I’ve noticed a trend of upcoming people who attack what they call “GRACE message”. After listening to some people who claim to be putting the body of Christ right, I was made to realize that the truths in Hebrews, Romans, Colossians and Ephesians about SIN and forgiveness of sins are faleshood and cannot be relied upon! When you listen to these “reformers” teach, you have no choice but take what all the aforementioned books teach about SIN and forgiveness of sin and throw them into the trash can! My Bishop Sir, in your writeup I sensed you were advocating the need for balanced teachings and that is awesome! I’ve never yet met anyone who preaches this “GRACE” and tell people its okay to sin. My Bishop, pls help us tell people everywhere to rightly divide the Finished Work of Christ, so as to not void, violate and nullify what the New Covenant communicates in an attempt to put the church right! Thank you Bishop!

      Believers are products of what they hear. We must be careful how we present the gospel of grace to the hearers. Sometimes it appears some of us forget what the Bible says in 2 Timothy 3:16-17, that “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.”. The Amplified version is even more delicious. It says “All Scripture is God-breathed [given by divine inspiration] and is profitable for instruction, for conviction [of sin], for correction [of error and restoration to obedience], for training in righteousness [learning to live in conformity to God’s will, both publicly and privately–behaving honorably with personal integrity and moral courage]; so that the man of God may be complete and proficient, outfitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work”.

      @ Aloye Ivienagbor Ernest. I understand the point you are trying to make but let’s clarify something here. We all know that grace is a person (Christ) but grace is also a message. If grace is not a message what then does the Bible mean by “the gospel of grace”. Gospel means good news. If grace is not a message why then do preachers preach it in churches? You see, this is one of the major problems the church is having today. In an attempt to impress people with revelation, preachers are using irrelevant semantics to explain the gospel and in the process they make the gospel look so complicated.

    Thank you sir. May God continue to increase in you in Jesus name Amen. There is a teaching going on now, it is called “hyper grace”. What this means is that, one can still be living an unrighteous life and still make heaven, that the body is earthly, that is only the body that is earthly that sins,not ones or our spirits. They turn grace into a license for committing sin. The Bible said that , shall we continue in sin that grace may abound. Apostle Paul said God forbid. Some use this teachings of grace to populate their Churches by legalistic teachings of grace that is not Gods’.may help us in Jesus name Amen.

    Thank you Sir, I pray God will open the understanding of most of the readers of this article on GRACE. I use to wonder where we miss the Truth about the real meaning of God’s Grace. People now commit open sin ,the next thing is for them to share the Grace to cover their sins. Thank you pastor God renew your strength.
