Most people tend to think about God’s grace as something that’s exclusively connected to our salvation. But grace is about so much more than how we come to Christ.
In fact, our entire Christian walk must be fueled by the grace of God!
God’s grace is real and powerful in our lives. There’s nothing we can do that doesn’t ultimately come from his grace. Yes, grace saves us, but God also spreads it throughout our lives.
Grace forgives us. (Isaiah 43:25) Though we don’t deserve it, God wipes our slate clean by his grace.
Grace sustains us. (Philippians 2:13) God will never ask us to do anything he doesn’t give us the ability and the power to do. That power and ability is called grace.
Grace heals us. (Psalm 147:3) God heals our broken hearts and binds up our wounds.
Grace liberates us. (Matthew 11:28-30) Our relationship with Jesus isn’t about what we do. Instead it’s about resting in what the Lord has already done. If your Christian life is not a life of resting in Christ, you’re moving into legalism.
Grace gives us talents. (Romans 12:6) God has given each one of us the ability to do something well, and we’re to use those abilities for him.
Grace transforms us. (Romans 12:2) Through his grace, God makes us new through the renewing of our mind.
Grace matures us. (2 Peter 3:18) God’s work of making us more like Jesus happens not because we’ve earned it, but by the grace of God.
The Bible says, “For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him” Philippians 2:13 NLT. With God’s grace, we can live a life of joy!
