Ok I fell behind again. I need to bring some of my sermons up to date so here’s mother’s day with the next few to follow soon.
What does it mean to be godly? The dictionary definition means to have qualities like God. A godly person will demonstrate Characteristics that God would demonstrate. Surely we are supposed to be godly. This morning, actually I would like to talk specifically to the ladies in church church about being a godly woman. You men are not allowed to tune out because quite frankly the same lessons can apply to you.
What does it mean to be a woman of God?
What does it mean to live in grace? Grace as I’ve often defined it means getting what you don’t deserve. The official definition of theologians has been “unmerited favor”.
As recipients of grace you gain the benefits of Christ in you even though it is unmerited. In one portion living in grace means living eternal life now because of the grace you’ve been given. In another portion living in grace means dwelling restfully within the grace of God realizing that His grace is your salvation – it means getting off the treadmill and relying upon his Grace. And yet in a third portion, living in grace means letting your life be shaped by the grace that you have received.
