GraceLife Thoughts for Easter 2012

We started publishing GraceLife Thoughts on the Internet 17 years ago (March 1995). One of the great joys we’ve had during that time has been sharing about the Death, Burial and Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ during the days leading up to Easter. As the Apostle Paul wrote so beautifully almost 2,000 years ago: Continue reading

What We Have in Jesus (Pt 3)

We have EVERYTHING in Jesus!

The Apostle Paul is specific about the individual blessings God gives His children. The first he mentioned is that God chose us in Him “before the foundation of the world.” When we consider who we were before we were saved, God’s choosing us becomes an even larger blessing. Continue reading

What We Have in Jesus (Pt 2)

Christians have an amazing spiritual “inheritance.” We can thank Jesus for that.

It is also a powerful revelation of Who Jesus Christ is and what He demands from His Church now. Continue reading

Grace in the Workplace (Pt 5)

An Understanding of Being “In” Christ

We don’t have the physical, mental or emotional ability in and of ourselves to fulfill God’s Will in our lives. Thankfully, God doesn’t ask us to do that. God placed us “in” Christ and Christ “in” us so Christ would be the One doing the work through us. Our ministry is His ministry. Continue reading
