Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. (Ephesians 4:29, KJV)
But He gives us more and more grace (power of the Holy Spirit…) (James 4:6, Amplified)
That your words may minister grace unto the hearer. The Lord asks us and anoints us to speak words of grace. Words that minister the power needed to do what God has called us to do.
God has called us to be like Him. Our words are to minister grace, because His words minister grace.
How do you access grace? By faith. It is by faith that it might be by grace (Romans 4:16)
I once asked the Lord for the grace to walk in love. His response was an instant insight into how Jesus walked as the Son of God in this earth. Here is what He showed me.
And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased. (Luke 3:22, KJV)
Jesus believed what God said about Him. He believed that He was God’s Son. He believed that God loved Him. He believed that God was pleased with Him. He had faith in God and in God’s Words to Him and by that faith, He accessed the grace to walk it out in this earth.
In Luke 4:18-21 we also see that He believed that the Holy Spirit was upon Him and that He was anointed and by faith He accessed the grace (the power of the Holy Spirit) to walk it out.
Now the Bible says that I am born of God’s seed and God is Love. I am born of God, I am born of Love. The Bible also states that God’s love has been shed abroad in my heart by the Holy Spirit.
What happens when I believe this? I access the grace to walk it out in this earth.
This is not only true of the few scriptures I have shared in this post. It is true for all the things God has spoken to us in His Word.
Believe what He says and by faith access the grace in His Words to walk it out in this earth.
I didn’t even know about this post when I updated my status. God is GREAT!!!
