GRADUATION & CONVOCATION 2016
SPEECH DELIVERED BY: ARCHBISHOP AFILAKA AYODELE LAWRENCE
THEME: OVERFLOWING GRACE 1 PETER 1:2
ELECT ACCORDING TO the foreknowledge of God the father, is sanctification of the spirit, for obedient sprinkling of the Blood of Jesus Christ. Grace on you peace be multiplied
Peter confirm this understanding in 2 Pet. 1:2, he says that explicitly that grace and peace are giving to come “ in the knowledge of God and of Jesus Christ, may grace and peace be multiple to you in the knowledge of god and Jesus our lord”. In other word, not only am I praying for grace and peace to increase, I am writing a letter to give knowledge of god and of Jesus Christ as kindling for the fire of this increase.
Grace is one of the most important subject in the whole of scripture because it is by grace that we are save and it is through grace; through god’s help, that we are able to continue our Christian journey (Eph. 2:8-9)
