  • The After the fall Redemption
    Friday, April 7, 2023
    In the Lord we often feel the worst thing that can happen to us is that we fall. We should try to do everything possible to avoid falling. But we need to realize something else. When did redemption begin? Redemption only begins after the fall. That's when it all counts. We think we can relate to God as together people. We can't. We can only come to God in need of being saved through grace. We never come because we've got it together. We come through mercy and grace. Salvation and grace only happens after the fall. In light of that, we only stand by grace and mercy. Sometimes we get so far away from grace; we think we are doing great, we are independent and self-sufficient. That's actually fallen right there. Sometimes the best thing that can happen is when we trip up on our face. Then we go back to the foot of Messiah at the cross. Because there is no salvation without it, and all salvation is only within it. The grace of God can only be known now, after the fall.
    From Message #1251 - Rising in Grace
    Today's Mission
    Be grateful today for the Lord's grace and mercy. Thank Him for not leaving you where He found you, for picking you up from your fall. And if you fall... Rise up - That's what it's all about.
