God’s Grace by Pastor Melissa Scott

Filed under: Pastor Melissa Scott — admin @ 6:16 am

I still live in the same flesh that I lived in when I didn’t know or understand anything about God. I haven’t received new skin (flesh). But I am a new creature in Christ Jesus. By His power I am made whole and He has washed my sins away. That brings us to Romans 7:15, “For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.” Maybe I will help somebody get delivered from the doctrine of ‘perfectionism.’ I’m still a sinner being saved by God’s Grace and I’m not afraid to admit it. Thank God for I Corinthians 15:54 where it says until “this mortal shall put on immortality.” No one wants to read that because they want it ‘Zap’—right now. Until “this mortal puts on immortality,” that tells you it’s not going to happen here. I am a work in progress.

Pastor Melissa Scott teaches us that the promise of God “As thy day, so shall thy strength be.” That’s a wonderful promise for us because you know there are days, and today was one of them, I just felt miserable this morning. I really felt bad, but by Faith I’m here. “The steps of a good man or woman are ordered by the LORD.” So what happens when you fall? Well, I know you’ve all been taught ‘Get up and point in the right direction.’ But if “the steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD” and you take a fall, what then? These are all the principles we’ve been taught. We can go back to Isaiah 50 and say don’t doubt in the dark what God showed you in the light, “Trust in the name of the LORD.”
