Grace to See His Face


"The amazing grace of the Master, Jesus Christ, the extravagant love of God, the intimate friendship of the Holy Spirit, be with all of you."

 2 Corinthians 13:14, The Message


Did you know that the best gift God could ever give us is the privilege of having a “face to face” relationship with Him? Jesus, because of His grace has given us this very gift.


When we believe in and receive Jesus, we are reconciled with God. We are able to see Him as He is and we are able to have a friendship with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Once, we were sinners weighed down with sin, guilt and condemnation—but by His grace, He gave us faith to be saved. When we turned to God and ran in His direction, the Father welcomed us home with His open arms. We came face to face with our Creator and Father God. He instantly made us family. He clothed us with a robe of righteousness, fit our feet with gospel sandals that ministered peace to our hearts, gave us a ring that represented the new covenant agreement we became heirs to and threw a big party in heaven with His angels to welcome us to the family.


“Now God has us where He wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all His idea, and all His work. All we do is trust Him enough to let Him do it. It's God's gift from start to finish! We don't play the major role. If we did, we'd probably go around bragging that we'd done the whole thing! No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving,” (Ephesians 2:7-9, The Message).


Today, by grace, see His face and enjoy fellowship with Him in the most personal, heartfelt and intimate ways.


"Father, I am so thankful that by Your grace I can see Your face and receive Your love and intimate friendship. Today, I come boldly to Your Throne of Grace to obtain mercy and find grace to help. Lord, I want to sit with You, enjoy Your Presence, hear Your heart and know You more. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus' Name. Amen."
