Righteousness by faith isn’t the ‘new’ Gospel, but it is the Gospel.
It seems new to alot of believers because so much mixture had infiltrated our teachings since people started to doubt the goodness of God, His unmerited favor of granting us justification by faith, Jesus’s faith.
When I share the gospel of grace with the new Christians friends I come across, they often look at me strange, a girl from the far east preaching the Gospel in the wild west, in ways that contradict from what they have been learned in their own neighbourhood churches.
The surprise look on their faces saddens me, of how much they have been missing out, from the liberty of God’s truth, the truth of His grace. The riches of God’s grace, the unending supply of our heavenly inheritance. And most importantly, the rest we receive from knowing that we are effortlessly established by God’s grace and not by our self-preservation.
I pray for the Gospel of Grace to breakout here in Europe too. Grace is the source of revival, just as it is the source of our life and salvation, which has to first outbreak within the churches. Restoration and renewal of the mind to begin within the members of Jesus’s Body, we have to be well-fed (believe right) before we can have the strength to feed others (with the right beliefs). Preach undiluted Grace and you will be magnifying Jesus. Preach Jesus’s obedience and people will be set free. Preach God’s unmerited favor and people will fall crazy in love with Jesus and His body like never before, knowing just how much God loves them unconditionally, regardless of their performance. Preach Grace and people will start regining in life and in health, minds and bodies made whole.
Thank You Papa, for giving us this precious truth about who You are and what it truly means to be Your Child, about who we are, our position and identity in Christ. Thank You Papa that Your Grace is soverign as well here in Europe and You have great plans for the churches here, there will be extreme ‘renovations’ of minds and hearts, at the revelation of Grace. Let our knowledge of Your Grace and Truth be ever-increasing and ever-intimate, that is true to Your nature of unconditional love. Thank You Lord, in Jesus’s name, amen.
