TOPIC: GRACE FOR THE RACE

*Read: Ecclesiastes 9:7-13*
*MEMORISE: _I returned and saw under the sun that-The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor bread to the wise, nor riches to men of understanding, nor favor to men of skill; But time and chance happen to them all_ (Ecclesiastes 9:11).*

*EXPOSITION*
Understanding what one needs for any voyage spells success and hitch-free journey. Prophet Elijah thought he had enough of the meal brought down while running away for his life from the devilish Jezebel, but God asked him to eat more. Why? The journey was far ahead of him. Elijah obeyed and went in that strength to the journey, for days *(1 Kgs. 19:3-9).* That can be likened to the grace, which everybody may not have. It is true we can have age mates, roommates, bed or bunk mates, but there is nothing like “grace mates”! Though we seem to enter into similar race, having accepted Christ as our Lord, yet the grace God gives individuals is not the same.

Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, remains the general Grace that God has given mankind *(Jn. 3:16),* though, man failed and still fails to embrace this wonderful Grace. Despite this, the grace is still valid, till now. However, the grace will be gone on the day of judgement. The unblemished Lamb who was once and for all slain for mankind would turn into the Lion of the tribe of Judah with rod of iron in His hand to judge the world.

While God makes available His grace through Christ, there must be conscious efforts to put oneself in the right place, in order for God’s grace to abundantly locate one. Enjoying unspeakable grace, is not an automatic thing, neither is it brought when man plays his own roles effectively. The race before every Christian is not an easy one, but God’s special grace is sufficient, free and final to make it successful. Where there is no grace for the race, struggling is inevitable! The grace gives you the pace in the race. Strive to put yourself in the arena it happens, God helping you.

*PRAYER POINTS*
*1.* Lord, help me to be rightly positioned in order to continue to enjoy Your grace.
*2.* Oh Lord, help me never to abuse Your grace upon my life.
*3.* Lord, please bring back gospel ministers who have fallen from grace to grass again.

*EXTRA READING FOR TODAY:* Deuteronomy 33:14 – 34:12; Josh 1:1 – 2:18; Luke 6:1 – 6:22
