Our Majestic God: Psalm 93:1-5

The Lord reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the Lord is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved. Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting. The floods have lifted up, O Lord, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves. The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea. Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, O Lord, forever.

Today's message is a reminder of the majesty of God who created and sustains everything. All of God's creations obey His will and move at His command. Even the flood waters of the rivers, oceans, and lakes when overflowing their banks, obey His command. When the angry flood waters rise to a certain peak, they cease at His command, simply because He is mightier than they are; even the many unseen galaxies is under His command. What a God!
Our Majestic God is superior to all other gods; He is from everlasting to everlasting; even His throne is everlasting.

Friends: John 15:13

Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Our scripture text provides us with the true definition of friends; Jesus Christ laid down His life for all humanity and those who accept His atoning work is considered His friend.
Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines a friend as one attached to another by affection or esteem. Many of us will say we have friends, but can we measure the strength of that friendship is in need the person is there to give assistance or a listening ear? Proverbs 18:24 speak of friends on these terms; a man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother. I was raised with this verse when being taught on what true friendship is. I have lived long enough to have and experience true friendship. 1 Samuel 18:3 is an example of true friendship. Jonathan was friend enough to tell David what his faults were and still the two remained friends.
Lastly, I was taught to choose my friends who are like-minded; in Christ all believers are like-minded--having the mind of Christ; loving all as Christ loved us all and gave His life for us.
What a friend we have in Jesus? A friend we can call anytime day or night. A friend we can tell all of our troubles to. There is no friend like Jesus Christ.

God's Grace: 1 Corinthians 15:10

But by the grace of God, I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain, but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.

How do we define grace? The Student Bible Dictionary (P106) defines grace as the favor (Genesis 6:8); God's free and undeserved love that never quits (Ephesians 2:8). God's grace comes as His free gift that is known as eternal life through Jesus Christ's atoning work on Calvary's cross (Romans 6:23).
Being that we now have an understanding of what grace is, all believers have a personal understanding of grace being God's love, grace and mercy because justice was demanded, but mercy in the form of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior took the place of justice. In addition, we understand that it is by God's grace we are who we are and where we are. Without God's grace, we would still be lost in a world of sin and shame with no hope of eternal life after this earthly tabernacle is over.
We can thank God daily for His favor.  It is Him who wakes us daily; provides for all our needs. When we need a healing; He heals; when we need deliverance; He delivers. As the saying goes, "whatever we need God got it." Yes, I am a child of God because of His grace. We thank God for His grace.
God's grace enfolds because of His agape love.
