AN AMAZING GRACE

There is grace which is of divine influence which operates in humans to regenerate and sanctify, to inspire virtues , to impart strength to endure trial and resist temptation; and as an individual virtue or excellence of divine origin.

Grace is the love of God shown to the unlovely; the peace of God given to the restless; the unmerited favor of God.

Grace is unconditional love toward a person who does not deserve it

Judgment kills. Only grace makes us alive

Grace is fundamentally a word about God: his un-forced initiative and extravagant demonstrations of care and favor toward us.

In grace, God gives nothing less than Himself. Grace, then, is not a third party mediating between God and sinners, but is Jesus Christ in redeeming action.”

As Christians live every day by the grace of God. We receive forgiveness according to the riches of God’s grace, and grace drives our sanctification.

Paul tells us more in his epistle
Titus 2:11,
“the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives”

Spiritual growth doesn’t happen overnight;
2 Peter 2:18 make us understand that
we “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” .

Grace transforms our desires, our motivations, and our behavior.
In fact, God’s grace grounds and empowers everything in the Christian life.

Grace is an expression of God in us.
