Grace is one of the most wonderful things that is available to us when we become a Christian. Personally, I am so grateful to the Almighty God for making this available to us. God gave His only Son so that we could be saved and have eternal life.
Ephesians 2:8–9 (NKJV)
8For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
Grace is something that we need not just for a moment, it is something we need on an ongoing basis. We need it daily! The fact is as humans, we sin and make mistakes continually, even though our deepest desire is to live the righteously and to please God in all we do. Many people have not come to understanding the magnitude of what took place at the cross, when Jesus died for you and me. When you truly grasp how unbelievable and amazing this occurrence was, you will begin to understand to some extend what true grace really means.
The bible tells us that:
Titus 2:11–12 (NKJV)
11For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, …
You see, in the above part of verse 11 and beginning part of verse 12, it tells us that grace that comes to us when we get save, teaches us something. We must ask ourselves the question, what is the grace that brings salvation teach us?
It teaches us that the price was so great, and if we understand all that Jesus did for us, it will empower us to change the way we live. Let’s look at the following verse:
Titus 2:12 (NKJV)
12teaching us that denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age,
Once you truly understand the power of grace, it will change the way you approach the way you live. This grace is the greatest gift that God gave us and the immensity of it empowers us to begin to walk in the light.
I hope this encourages and blesses you!
Remember God is not looking for perfect people, He is looking for surrendered people.
Grace be to you!
