Effective Grace

Glory to God!

On Saturday we had another of our quarterly welcome coffees at L60 where we had the opportunity to meet some new people at KLF and for them to get to know a few of our leaders and members and to find out more about who KLF is, our vision, our history and our structure. The next welcome coffee will be held on the 3 September.

As God continues to speak to us about fruitfulness, He has been showing us that one of the keys to fruitfulness is a deeper understanding of His grace - His limitless, unconditional kindness towards us (Col 1:6). On Sunday Richard spoke to us about the purpose of God's grace and showed us that if we don't grow in our understanding of God's grace we can receive it in vain (2 Cor. 6:1). By the grace of God the believer receives a new position (sonship and authority), power to overcome the work of the enemy and a new purpose in living for God and His salvation purposes. Richard showed us that the believer receives grace in vain when s/he tries to earn his or her position in Christ (Gal. 5:2-4); when the believer doesn't use God's grace to be strengthened to overcome temptation and sin (Heb. 4:14-16; Titus 2:11-14) and when the believer doesn't use God's grace to reach out to others to reconcile them to the Father's love (1 Cor. 15:9,19; 2 Cor. 5:17-6:2). 

We praise God for the incomparable riches of His grace, expressed in His kindness to us in Christ Jesus and we pray that we will not receive His grace in vain.
