We live every day by the grace of God.
Paul says, “the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world” (Titus 2:11).
You see what grace should do in your life? Let grace teach you!
You receive forgiveness according to the riches of God’s grace, and also, it is grace that drives your sanctification, training you to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and that you live a self-controlled, upright, and godly life.
Spiritual growth is a process; you grow both in grace, “and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 2:18). It is grace that transforms your will, desires, motivations, and behaviour into spiritual maturity.
Anyway, our topic is what is grace?
To understand grace read the bible. It is most clearly expressed through scriptures, God’s promises, and is embodied in Jesus Christ. Paul says, “Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father: To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen” (Galatians 1:3-5).
Grace is the unmerited favour of God; his love and peace for the undeserving. You understand grace mostly when in the midst of need, sin, suffering, and brokenness.
The gospel of Christ, i.e., the grace of Christ is the message everyone needs.
