REVEALED WORD TODAY
// Read Romans 11:1-6 //
11 I ask then: Did God reject his people? By no means! I am an Israelite myself, a descendant of Abraham, from the tribe of Benjamin. 2 God did not reject his people, whom he foreknew. Don’t you know what Scripture says in the passage about Elijah—how he appealed to God against Israel: 3 “Lord, they have killed your prophets and torn down your altars; I am the only one left, and they are trying to kill me”[a]? 4 And what was God’s answer to him? “I have reserved for myself seven thousand who have not bowed the knee to Baal.”[b] 5 So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace. 6 And if by grace, then it cannot be based on works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace.
Beloved, is your walk with God by grace or works? There is need to always ask oneself if the race one is running in Christ is still by grace or works. It is so easy to run by works and not grace if care is not taken. Works is to labour to qualify for what God gives by grace while grace is to believe and receive the provision of God. Which one are you doing? In Romans 9:2-3, Apostle Paul said “some people have zeal of God but not according to knowledge…”Are you working to receive from God or believing to receive? The promise is only sure by grace through faith.
Prayer: Pray that you will receive by grace and not works
