Think a minute on this phrase: “Are Human effort and Divine favor mutually exclusive?” Do Rabbits jump out of hats or do they set a spell and cherish their surroundings? Do Worldly efforts produce Helpful and Sincere service to Friends and Foes as a Habit of Fortune. God sends rain to His friends and adversaries alike; is our Love dispersed in such manner?
Christ’s Divinity was not recognized in His hometown, instead one day He was scurried to a cliffs-end to be silenced. Our Lord was a Mortal outcast, but assumed every Celestial favor known to man. When God is recognized Father, Son, and Holy Spirit He becomes One; harvesting stylish Ministers and Religious doers of modern times. Who in turn receive favor to disperse Wisely amongst all Creation.
“Well then, should we keep on sinning so that God can show us more and more of his wonderful grace? Of course not! Since we have died to sin, how can we continue to live in it? Or have you forgotten that when we were joined with Christ Jesus in baptism, we joined him in his death? For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.
Since we have been united with him in his death, we will also be raised to life as he was. We know that our old sinful selves were crucified with Christ so that sin might lose its power in our lives.” (Romans 6:1-6 NLT)
How to Perceive and Progress in God’s grace is today’s trivia. Men and Women who seek a relation with God are Humbled in doing so. But their holiness is not obtained overnight and many are outcast or downtrodden before realizing their Cross; joined in death and awaiting full restoration we are One through Rite of Faith.
