Scripture: Luke 4:21-30
In this growth pattern, there is tremendous opposition. Jesus’ message was so popular in His own home town, the people decided they wanted to kill Him. They threw Him out of the city, led Him to the top of the hill and suddenly every single person lost their grip. Isn’t it nice to know there is a salvation anointing where people lose their grip and can no longer hang onto, hold or resist us? They cannot resist us because suddenly they lose their grip. Now that is a worthwhile anointing and every one of us can expect its availability until we finish our race! God and God alone decides when that is and sometimes He lets us know to prepare. God’s grace allows us to finish our race whether it’s a few months or ninety-plus years. This grace that saves us kills our enemies if they do not relent. Covenant grace in Scripture has always been a two-edged sword. Beware of those who present grace with only one edge – they counterfeit the gospel!
