Weekly Pursuit – Week 3 of September

Sep 21, 2023 by



Rom. 5:17b “Much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.”




We need to come to the very God who is grace and receive grace again and again until we are filled with grace…When grace is allowed to fill us, it abounds in us and then reigns in us. The reigning grace always follows the abounding grace.


Doctrine, teaching, and exhortation are of no avail. In a sense, not even our prayer is effectual in enabling us to reign in life by grace. The only thing that works is to come to the divine source and open ourselves from the depths of our being to be filled with God as grace. In order to be filled, we must ask the Lord to remove all insulation and frustration. We need to pray, “Lord, I am willing for every hindrance to be removed. I want to keep myself directly open to You. Lord, fill me completely with Yourself as grace.” Wherever you are, at work, at school, or in your car, stay open to the Lord to be filled with Him as grace…As you receive grace in this way, you will be filled with grace and eventually grace will overflow from within you. Then you will reign in life by grace over sin, death, and Satan. In your experience these three enemies will be utterly subdued. Sin, death, and Satan are still working within us. But if we come to the heavenly source and open ourselves thoroughly to be filled with grace, we shall reign over them in life. This is our need today in the church life.
