Ephesians 4:7
But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.

Ephesians 4:13
Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

What is your measure of Grace?  Do you have the Grace to believe Jesus is Lord,  He was God become man who died and was Resurected and now sits at the right hand of God .

The sacrifice of His earthly body, His blood covers  our sins and makes us the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.

If you believe that good.  Now do you truly believe He became man, on this earth….just like you and me?

Tempted as we are,  lazy, slothful, greedy, short tempered, covetous?

Probably not.  I believe Jesus was just like us, except He had an open heart to the Father for directions and the Spirit for Power.

Luke 4:2
King James Version (KJV)
“Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungered.”

Hebrews 2:17-18
King James Version (KJV)
“Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.

For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.”

The only difference in us and Jesus is that He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and knew how to use the Spiritual Gifts  available to whosoever or as many as touch Him.

Romans 12:3
King James Version (KJV)
“For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.”

What is your measure of faith?

By Grace we are saved by Faith.  We have to believe the impossible story of Jesus to be saved.   We need to believe the impossible fact that Jesus said:

John 14:12
King James Version (KJV)
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.”

2 Corinthians 12:12
King James Version (KJV)
“Truly the signs of an apostle were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds.”

Hebrews 2:4
King James Version (KJV)
“God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?”

Do you really  believe?
