grace and peace

I always end my posts with GRACE AND PEACE, which is actually something I picked up listening to pod casts from Rob Bell, the pastor of a church in Grand Rapids Michigan ...
but today reading the word from Joel states it clearly why Grace and Peace is important to me and everyone.
ENJOY ....

Share Your Life
Today's Scripture

“We loved you so much that we shared with you not only God’s Good News but our own lives, too” (1 Thessalonians 2:8).
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
People all over the world are searching for grace and peace. They are powerful forces in the life of the believer. First of all, we are saved by God’s grace through faith. We don’t deserve it and can’t earn His grace and forgiveness, but He gives it to us anyway. Grace is God’s favor that opens the door to salvation, but it doesn’t stop there. His grace is supernatural favor and empowerment to live the life God has called us to here on earth.Peace is every bit as powerful. It’s not just a feeling; it’s a state of being. Peace means “to set at one again.” We are settled internally. And nothing externally can move us from our position of peace. Receive His grace and peace today and declare it over the lives of the people around you. Remember, as you sow words of blessing into the lives of others, you’ll see that increase of harvest in your own life in return!
A Prayer for Today
Father in heaven, thank You for Your grace and peace at work in my life. I choose to stand in my position of peace by following your Word and staying in the plan You have for me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
