What does the grace of God in our lives do? We often think of grace in reference to when Jesus died on the cross. This is absolutely true. However, if we stop there we are not seeing or experiencing a full picture of what grace is. When we dig deeper into what grace is and what it looks like in our lives we see that there is so much more. This passage sheds light on much of this.
What are some of the things that the Grace of God allows us to do?
1. Renounce ungodliness
2. Avoid worldly passions
3. Be self-controlled
4. Live Godly lives
5. Redemption from all lawlessness
6. Zeal for good works
7. Exhort and rebuke with Authority
There is much more that God’s grace allows such as the ability to endure trials and struggles in our lives. God’s grace is what brings us through immense heart-ache and pain. We limit because we do not necessarily connect well to it or take the time to let God reveal His unending grace. The grace of the Lord should fuel us and spur us on to accomplishing all that He has planned for our lives.
When you think of God’s grace, what comes to mind? When you read the things one the list above, what things are true in your life and what are not? What ways can you start embracing God’s grace fully?
We would love to hear what ways you can do this in the comment section.
