From Grace To Grass

Key Verse

“The precious sons of Zion, comparable to fine gold, how are they esteemed as earthen pitchers, the work of the hands of the potter” (Lamentations 4:2)!

Text — Lamentation 4:1-5


To fall from grace to grass is a metaphorical term used to describe the state of someone who experienced a decline in status, prestige or favour. It means a downward drift from a state of affluence, comfort and privilege to a decadent and deplorable state. It describes a state of backsliding and declension. Lucifer was the first casualty of such a decline. He descended from a burning and shining Cherub to a most abhorrent fiend. He was banished from the stones of fire to the regions of darkness. It is also exemplified by the precious sons of Zion described in our text. A people as illustrious and highly esteemed as fine gold were eventually degraded to earthen vessels! They lost their value through sin and compromise.

A believer is precious in the sight of God. He is a jewel of the Almighty and regarded as the apple of God’s eye. But when the child of God permits and condones sin in his life, he becomes contaminated and polluted. And if he does not repent, he loses privileges and heaven. He falls from grace to grass.


Lucifer was the first casualty


Sin leads to loss of favour and patronage

Prayer for today

Oh God, help me to retain my position in Christ.
