READY® Truth Ministries recognizes God as one being, having a nature of three-parts: God the Father, God the Son – Jesus Christ (the Word of God made flesh), and the Holy Spirit of God. God Himself was in the man Christ Jesus, reconciling the lost humanity to righteousness and right standing with Himself (II Corinthians 5:19). The Son is personified in John 1:1, 14, 16 KJV,
1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
16 And of his fullness have all we received, and grace for grace.
Those who accept eternal life and salvation from God by confessing with their mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord; believing in their heart that God has raised Jesus from the dead; and repenting of their sins; are positioned in God’s Grace (Romans 10:9, Rev. 3:19, Ephesians 2:8). God’s Grace is His unmerited favor, spiritual blessing, and mercy. In acknowledging God’s Grace through the gift of Christ, one is welcomed to ask and receive of God the indwelling presence of His Holy Spirit (Luke 11:13). He or she is then brought by the Spirit into the reality and exercise of divine gifts (Ephesians 4:7-8).
EPHESIANS 4:7-8 KJV
“7 But unto every one of us is given Grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.
8 Wherefore he said, when He ascended up on high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.
With an appreciation of the gift of Christ, and a knowledge and understanding of God’s will and purpose through the help of the Holy Spirit, a believer is empowered to cultivate a fruitful lifestyle and walk of faith that glorifies God, the Father.
