Topic; ONLY BYGRACE
Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should that remain: whatsoever ye shall ask
of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
Bible in one year:
Father, thank You for Your
grace over my life. Please
don’t let me ever stop
enjoying help from Your
throne of grace.
ome people think that God is doing great things
for them because they deserve it. They think
because of all that they do for God, then it is only
expected that He would bless them as He does. Believe
me honestly, everything that God does, He does for His
name’s sake – not for you, but that His name will be

people see the things God is doing in The Redeemed
Christian Church of God, they think I must be special.
The only thing special about me is that God chose me,
because even from as far back as when I was a little

The Redeemed Christian Church of God would go
round the world. It had nothing to do with me at all;
God just decided to glorify Himself through this
Church and it is only by grace that He chose me to be
the General Overseer. He could have chosen anyone
else. There are people far more qualified than I, but it is
by grace that I was chosen.
When you see people still drowning in sin, don’t judge
them because you are on your way to heaven; rather,
pray that God will save them by His grace. It is by His
grace that you are not the one on the way to hell.
Never forget that it is He who is working something out for His
name’s sake. You are only graced to be a recipient of
God’s blessings. The people of Israel may have thought
that God parted the Red Sea and drowned Pharaoh and
his army because they were so special. He did it for His

They were only graced to be the ones He
did it for. Romans 9:17 testifies to this:
For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even
for this same purpose have I raised thee up,
that I might shew my power in thee, and
that my name might be declared
throughout all the earth.
