Every aspect of Grace is marvelous and wonderful. Think on these words... marvelous and

Grace is all of the above and so much more. The one aspect of Grace meaning that to me is
priceless is, flip-flop! Grace is the total flip-flop from the Old Testament. Grace is the
message of the New Testament. We are graciously forgiven and walk under the banner or
canopy of righteousness by believing, i.e. our faith.
One can discover this truth by understanding many of the prophetic teachings in the Old
Testament. One in specific that I just read is in Isaiah chapter 40: 1-5 "
1 Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God.
2 Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished,
that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the Lord's hand double for all her
3 The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make
straight in the desert a highway for our God.
4 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the
crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:
5 And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the
mouth of the Lord hath spoken it."
The epitome of my flip-flop poin is made in Isaiah 40:4
We are not living under the judgement of the law, but the righteousness of Jesus! This is
best described as flip-flop.
In the Old Testament people died and were stoned for sins. Jesus has his hand
outstretched to adulteress people, even idolators today. We have all been given space to
repent and some are slower learners than others. God takes under consideration all the
elements involved with each individual in how they progress
into a mature, full blown Christian. He considers all circumstances such as environment and
This gives me great hope for those who have missed the mark so many times. Our patience
runs very thin awaiting the turning of some of our loved ones that have such great effects
on our personal life. But God has great patience waiting on precious seed to root and
Praise the Lord for his ability to perform his word and keep his promises.
