Introduction To Grace

Greetings to everyone that will read these posts. I look forward to our journey together as we learn about, and grow in the grace of God.
This blog is called Refreshing Grace, because God’s grace, transforms you from the inside out and brings joy to your soul. Through faith, Grace( Jesus is the grace of God incarnate) brings you into the experience of the “times of refreshing” mentioned in Acts 3:19. My desire is to encourage others in the things of the Lord, and grow together in God’s grace.
To grow in grace, and be refreshed by grace, you must understand what grace is. Grace is the unmerited, undeserved favor of God. Grace is God giving you everything you don’t deserve. It has been said the grace is God’s riches at Christ’s expense. G-R-A-C-E is God’s-Riches-At-Christ’s-Expense. The grace of God has been fully demonstrated and revealed through Jesus Christ. He has done all the work that you could never do. Jesus died for you and rose again that you might be forgiven and made righteous before God(Rom.5:1). When you are in a faith relationship with Him, God sees you as perfect, holy, and righteous.
Do you want to be refreshed? Rest in this. Jesus is your perfection. He is your right standing. He is everything that you ever wanted or needed. In Him you are blessed with every spiritual blessing (Eph.1:3). You are loved. Oh so loved. He loves you more than you can imagine. God the Father loves you as much as He loves Jesus ( John 17:23). As Jesus is, so are you in this world(1 John 4:17). When God sees you, He says, This is my beloved child, in whom I am well pleased.” Jesus makes you new. That is grace. That is refreshing.

  1. Good evening Pastor Arnette. Pam Wood gave me your name after I spoke with her about my vision to form a Grace and Mercy Concert Choir. I moved to Boone 2 years ago, and on day one (1) I was faced with racial opposition, and my life was threatened, simply because I was moving into an apartment building with a neighbor that hates people of color. I was frightened to the point of having a nervous breakdown, but God’s Grace & Mercy has again rescued me. That’s the story of my life. Had it not been for The Lord on my side….I am a member of Boone Menonite Brethern Church, and I love nothing more than to worship God through singing. I am a member of the choir. I would like to talk with you about where God has brought me from, what He has brought me through and where He is taking me. I am a 71 year-old Black female that loves God and do my best to treat all people the way I want to be treated. I have no family here, but God is my Everything!
