I have often wondered and have finally come to understand the relationship between GRACE and BLESSING.
Can a blessing be earned? I have done all these wonderful things and therefore I should expect a blessing?....the beatitudes is what fueled this belief
I'm blessed or receive blessings through GRACE....Paul's teaching s what led to this belief and a website I reviewed.
Earnings create a debt and GRACE doesn't.
Earned blessing can be built on pride while a blessing resulting from GRACE can't
Earnings depend too much on what YOU do while GRACE depends on what God does
Earnings are a function of a secular system while GRACE is a kingdom principle
Does anyone share that sentiment....if i'm wrong I will gracefully accept correction.
If you share and have any other points that you would like to add, that's fine too.
Let me know your thoughts.
