Why We Say Grace
By Faith Magbanua, July 01, 2018 04:07 AM
What does it mean to say grace?
To some people, saying grace means thanking God. To others, it means to pray and to give Him all the credit that He deserves, but the question is: how often do we say grace? And when and where is the perfect time and place to do so?
The answer is this: The best way to say grace is anywhere and anytime. We want to give thanks to the Lord and to honor Him, so choosing the place and time is of no value.
The Bible says, in Colossians 3:17 "And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him."
It simply means that in whatever we do. May it be finishing our exams, going to the gym or just cooking for your loved ones, we should always say our grace to God. By saying grace doesn't only mean to thank Him, it's just a way of talking to Him, asking God for help or just plainly giving back all the glory He deserves.
In 2018, not a lot of people are keen on thanking God because people are selfish and more immature than ever. They tend to idolize themselves than to idolize Jesus.
We are in a world where the word God is irrelevant and the word weighs so much more than anything else. Believe it or not, everyone is experiencing that, but as we study the Bible freely, especially the book of Colossians 3:12-17, we will see that not everything is supposed to be about us.
We should always thank God even when we are in distress, deep sorrow or even in the lowest point or of life.
(v16) Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
In whatever we do in this world, let us not be ashamed to say our grace to the Lord, even in public places.
Let's not be shy of our faith. Jesus did not die for us to be shy about Him. Be proud that you are a Christian and never forget your roots, never forget God.
