Seeing EGGS (Evidence of God’s Grace) Through Insight - John 12:23-24; 1 Kings 19:11-12; Romans 8:28

John 12:23-24

23 Jesus replied, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. 24 Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.

1 Kings 19:11-12

11 The Lord said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.”

Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. 12 After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.

Romans 8:28

28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Key Points

  • As long as we are breathing, we have Evidence of God’s Grace.

  • It is time we stop running around as chickens and start soaring like the eagles we are created to be.

  • We do not see things as they are; we see them as we are. Therefore, we have to see grace through Spiritual insight and not be limited to physical eyesight.

  • Unless a seed dies to being a seed it cannot be what God as further created it to be. Likewise, grace can cause us to die in some areas that we might live in others.

  • Do not be so focused on praying for the seed not to die that you fail to experience the fruit that comes from the experience. Be less focused on going through so you can grow through.

  • As the moon, we are created to reflect the light. There is just as much evidence of grace in the crescent as in the full moon.

  • Trying to find God is like the fish trying to find the ocean. There is nothing to look for. All we have to do is look to see.

  • Some glasses to help you to SEE

  • Stop thinking you see all the grace God wishes to reveal to you

  • Embrace the unknown blind spots of grace

  • Enjoy the process of swinging from glory to glory to glory to God where deeper connections are seen through Spiritual insight

  • Do not spend life trapped living between striving and arriving that you miss seeing the EGGS.

  • Cling to the fact that all things are coming together for our good.
