Grace is a reality. I must understand what it is and where it takes me. Romans 1:5 shows me that it is through this beautiful government of grace that I learn obedience. I obey through grace! And as I obey the Word of God and the Holy Spirit through grace, the Gospel is propagated to all nations.
Do you see how it goes? As we grow and disciple people and love and honor them, we care for one another, identifying with one another. Then, as God leads, we begin to spread out to our Jerusalem, our Judea, our Samaria, and to the uttermost parts of the world.
We are to live this life without earthly distractions. We must not live in a double-minded existence, but with a single eye full of light, we look to Jesus Christ and Him alone. Therefore, we will see the consummation of His great work in all of us as we stand before the Judge of the supreme court of heaven and hear the declaration, “Winner!”
