πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ Who Is The Apostle Of Grace?

The conversion of Saul of Tarsus was an amazing event. Saul loathed the very name of Christ. He blasphemed Him and caused others to be tortured so as to compel them to blaspheme that holy name. He led his nation and the world in rebellion against the resurrected, glorified Christ β€” the world which had already disowned and crucified the lowly Jesus.

But as Saul went to Damascus, still β€œbreathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord” (Acts 9:1), God did a wonderful thing. Rather than crush the leader of the world’s rebellion, He saved him. Christ broke through the heavens, as it were, to speak words of pity to His greatest enemy on earth. As a result Saul’s rebellious spirit was broken and in one moment the pitiless persecutor became the docile, indeed the devoted follower of Christ.

More than this, Saul of Tarsus, the persecutor, became Paul the Apostle. To him the glorified Lord committed β€œthe dispensation of the grace of God” (Eph. 3:2) and β€œthe gospel of the grace of God” (ActsΒ 20:24). Now he went everywhere proclaiming grace, telling men how God loved them, how Christ had come into the world and had gone to Calvary to pay man’s debt of sin so that believing sinners might be saved.

β€œThe gospel of the grace of God,” found in Paul’s epistles, does not blame anyone for the death of Christ. Rather it presents the cross as good news. It declares that β€œwe have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins according to the riches of His grace” (Eph. 1:7). It says that β€œGod hath concluded them all in unbelief that He might have mercy upon all” (Rom.Β 11:32) and that β€œwhere sin abounded, grace did much more abound” (Rom.Β 5:20). Thus the vilest sinner may believe and rejoice in the consciousness of sins forgiven. source

Bible Verse for 5/31/19

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. — 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
