Jesus: The Gift of Grace Who Prospers Us

"A gift is as a precious stone in the eyes of him that hath it: whithersoever it turneth, it prospereth." (Proverbs 17: 8)

The gift that prospers anyway one turns it -- that gift is Jesus.

His greatest prayer for us is that we prosper:

"Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth." (3 John 2)

Our  soul prospers as we walk in the truth (3 John 3-4), and this truth is defined by the grace of God in Chirst:

"For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ." (John 1: 17)


"11For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; 13Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works." (Titus 2: 11-14)


"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." (1 Corinthians 15: 10)

Grow in grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 3: 18), and thus His gift of grace will abound to you in greater measure (Romans 5: 17; 2 Peter 1: 2)
