Living in God’s Grace. Grace is commonly defined as God’s unmerited and undeserved favor. Ephesians 2:8 “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.” We have been saved through faith. Romans 5:2 “..through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.” We continue to receive an abundance of grace throughout life and into eternity. God’s grace never ceases to do its work in our life.
God is committed to transform each of us according to His special plan for our lives. Even His correction is an expression of His loving favor. Hebrews 12:10 “Our fathers disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, that we may share in his holiness.” When we falter or fail, we can rest assured that His amazing grace hems us in and always offers us redemption.
Grace is an amazing gift from God. It provides us with everything we need to live in perfect freedom: pardon for our sins, healing for our heart, the companionship of God’s indwelling Holy Spirit, and access to freely cultivate our relationship with Him. His grace upholds us, fills us, and sustains us.
