Apostle Lewis Fisher Jr. spoke to the Church, on the title called, “Grace – Unearned Favor”.
As cities around us are being shut down around the world we are still saying, “Lord, you are holy”. The favor of God can’t be matched by anything that man can comprehend and put in his own words.
To help guide us, the Apostle took us into a reading from 2 Timothy 1: 9-10. This scripture tells us that grace was given long before the world was ever formed. It manifested through Jesus. He gave it to us long before the world ever stood.
Apostle gave us this example of a man in prison on death row. He has no hope of ever being free or having an appeal or being released. He heard the guards coming and they opened the prison doors and told the man he was free to go. He ran out the prison and didn’t look back. You are free to go. He does not analyze it , or question it. He just takes off and runs out the prison.
The prisoner represented the church that was bound, and on death row.
We were born into iniquity and had no hope of being paroled. Then grace showed up and said that the Spirit of the Lord is upon him. He has anointed him to preach the gospel to the poor and to set at liberty them that are bruised and to release the captive.
God has set us free by Grace. It doesn’t matter how far we have fallen; God has extended his Grace to all of us. If you’d like to receive a FREE CD for additional spiritual guidance please follow this link to make your request.
