Word for the week

The God of all Grace

 

In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, 1 Peter 1:6  

 

In Greek the word for “various trials” is translated to “multi-coloured trials”. God’s remedy for multi- coloured trials is multi-coloured grace (...the God of all grace). In the Bible, a colour that has the most negative connotation is black. It is the colour of mourning and grief and sadness. It is the strongest colour or the enemy. When Jesus died on the cross, God made the entire universe black. It is also the colour of judgment. The colour red also talks about judgment, God’s fury and sin. The root word in Hebrew for Adam is “red man”. When God made the earth, the word used for earth is “red ground”. When Adam was punished, God said, "Cursed is the red ground beneath your feet..." However, the whole redemption story is based around the colour red - the red blood at the Passover, crossing the Red Sea, Rahab's red scarf at the window, Jesus the Son of Adam (red man), Jesus' red blood washes us white as snow. 

 

Red is usually impossible to get rid of, but the blood of Jesus is the only red that is able to wash us white as snow. When the enemy attacks you with red, God uses red to save your life! At the beginning, everything dealing with red was cursed. But by the blood of Jesus and the grace of God, what is cursed will no longer be cursed. It will be fruitful!
