disciples under grace
There’s no better time like this present age as true disciples to be devoted to personal holiness and good works to serve others. Thank God for the grace of God and teaching of the true grace of God but it includes being disciples. Salvation is provided by God’s grace (Eph. 2:8, 9) but discipleship is empowered by God’s grace (1 Cor. 15:10). Salvation involves God’s love for me through Christ’s work (Rm. 5:8; Gal. 2:20). Discipleship involves my love for God through my works (Eph.2:10). Salvation expresses God’s will for me (1 Tim. 2:4) but discipleship expresses my will for God (Luke 9:23).

Grace teaching to disciples that promotes lasciviousness (Jude 4), lawlessness (1 Jn. 3:4), and license in the name of liberty (Gal. 5:13) is not the true grace of God. Discipleship in the true grace of God frees us to serve not to sin.

Pastor John Rasicci is the founder and Pastor of Word of His Grace Church in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, where we are building people who are building the Church. Pastor's ministry mission is to help people discover God's dream for their Life, the Local Church, and the Last Days' Harvest. With a strong emphasis on the grace of God and with a prophetic voice, Pastor John preaches and teaches in churches, conferences, and crusades both locally and throughout the world. He has produced books, tapes, and other teaching materials to empower, enable, and equip Believers with the Word of God. Pastor John is married to his wife Candy who with their three children, Krista, Joanna, John Anthony, and two son-in-laws, Matt and Doug, serve together in the ministry. After graduating from Kent State University, Pastor John pursued a career in professional baseball before accepting the call to the ministry. He and his wife, Candy, received their ministry training from Rhema Bible Training Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
