The dispensation of the new – testament church is an era of grace. The invitation to salvation (to a fallen and corrupted world), the acceptance thereof (by a soul which seeks reunion with his Maker), and the manifest reality of the desired life in the Kingdom (of all who participate in the divine nature) are all kind courtesy the multi – faceted work of grace.
The Kingdom – life is a complete package prepared to ensure the holistic excellence of the believer; viz: , understanding the deep things of God, walking in holiness/righteousness; manifesting the power of God, living up to our individual divine mandates, enjoying prosperity and good health, etc. The amount of grace one is able to access is a determinant of the extent to which they shall indulge in the package made available to all.
The grace of God is boundless and unlimited; there is so much as one wish and can take. We are admonished in scriptures to boldly go to the eternal source to take grace for our benefit [Heb. 4: 16]. A friendly challenge we may be faced with in excelling in grace is complacency. This theme, “Reaching Unto the next Level of Grace” is therefore aimed at inspiring all unto desiring and more so, making conscious effort to access grace in higher dimensions than they have ever had; so as to experience a higher life in the Kingdom.
This material has been carefully designed under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit to provide a daily communion with the Father, who is the Eternal and Sole Repository of Grace. It provides a reading text to serve as a reference for the topic for the day, as well as a text (for each day) for meditation. The commentary and/or stories are meant to provide a general overview of the topic. However, for in – depth understanding, the user is enjoined to meditate deeply on the scripture references provided. The guide has been designed to ensure you spend time with your Bible at least twice every day. Thus, you have something to meditate on before going to bed, after your morning study. God bless you as you effectively patronize this material!
