Michael Jordan, perhaps the greatest basketball player to ever play the game, returned to his alma mater, the University of North Carolina, to watch a ball game. Arriving at the gymnasium with a friend, they noticed that the parking lot was full. The friend suggested that Jordan park his car in an empty spot reserved for those with handicaps.

Act 20:32 And now, brethren, I commend (commit, entrust) you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up (edify), and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified. Last week we talked about six reasons why a Believer should not live in sin, and how Biblical grace delivers from sin.

“10 When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the Lord thy God for the good land which he hath given thee. 11 Beware that thou forget not the Lord thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day: 12 Lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt therein; 13 And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied; 1 ...

I’ve recently begun a new franchise, with a corporation interested in good health, by eating more fruits and vegetables, with a product that helps us get more in our daily diet. So I’ve been researching the benefits of eating different fruits and vegetables. I didn’t realize many of them actually increase our immune systems, kill cancer stem cells, lower blood pressure and are natural anti-inflammatories!

The manager of a large office asked a new employee to come into his office. "What is your name?," was the first thing the manager asked. "John," the new guy replied. The manager scowled. "Look, I don't know what kind of a namby-pamby place you worked at before, but I don't call anyone by their first name!

Acts 20:32 says, “And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.” Over the past three weeks, we have shown clearly that salvation, acceptance, and righteousness are complete gifts of God; are completely given by grace; absolutely cannot be earned; and can ONLY be received by faith.

Acts 20:32 “And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.” This week we will continue our series on the word of God’s grace. Last week we covered the fact that: God’s grace is abundant; That His throne is a throne of grace; That Jesus brought God’s grace to us; that it is available to all; And that only the humble are able to receive it.

Consider that you are opening up this letter from Paul, who is speaking to the saints at Colosse; but imagine if you were living at that time, and he is writing this to you. Colossians 1:1-29 “1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timotheus our brother, 2 To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 3 We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, prayin ...

Before a young man left for his freshman year at college, his parents gave him a Bible and assured him it would be a great help as he transitioned into his new life. Within a month, he began sending them letters asking for money. Every time he did, his parents would write back telling him to read his Bible, citing chapter and verse.

Acts 20:32 says, “And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.” As we started out with last week, we see in this verse Paul entrusting his beloved Ephesian Christians to God, and to the word of His grace.

We studied Matthew, chapter 4 today in our church service. That’s where the Lord Jesus battles with the devil, using God’s Word. You know the devil will distort God’s Word, and use it to mislead us, so we have to seek God’s Word to wield it back at him, like Jesus did.

A friend of mine acquired a beautiful German Shepherd, he wanted to make sure that his dog wouldn't stray from his large yard, so he installed an "invisible fence" around his property. He buried an electrical wire a few inches deep under the soil, which was connected to a small box that sent out a signal to a receiver in the dog's collar.

Covenant; the sealed contract where God pledges His resources towards our prosperity. Genesis 12:1-3 “Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee: 2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: 3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be bl ...

I encourage you to read Acts 20:24-32 carefully. Verse 32 says, “And now, brethren, I commend (commit, entrust) you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up (edify), and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.” Paul would never see the Ephesians again.
