The Platform of Grace (Part Two): We Receive Of God's Fullness.

"For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9, NKJV)
When we give to our own children, do we only give them their needs? Do we give them according to their needs, or according to our riches, our bounty? 

GIVING ACCORDING TO NEEDS IS THE MINIMUM REQUIREMENT OF MERCY. Anything over and above that is called GRACE. We don’t relate with our children out of mere mercy. We relate with our children out of grace. We are gracious towards them out of a heart of love. 

Giving us only our needs is like a rich Dad giving his child only exact school fees with no extra money. How come we expect less of God, who is love – the very definition of the word? How come we expect less of Him, who is weighty in grace and glory? 

Just how much evil religion has done to us, shortchanging us of the fullness of God? GOD DOES NOT GIVE US OUR NEEDS ACCORDING TO OUR NEEDS! HE GIVES US OUR NEEDS ACCORDING TO HIS RICHES! HALLELUJAH!
