Saved by Grace! 3
“May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.” 2 Peter 1:2
Life redemption through divine grace is not something we can take lightly or for granted. It is an important part of our lives and one that we must be willing to accept as God’s gift to us. And also to appreciate and thank God for everything he has done for us. Because what you have experienced or been through as a momentary trial or affliction and come smiling out victorious is what other people are experiencing and see it perpetual in their lives.
The whole puzzle of life cannot be solved without God’s grace. As we can see from the bible, Romans 3:24 says we are justified by his grace as a gift through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. This grace makes us free from the wages of sin, which is death. According to Ephesians 2:8-9, God’s grace saves us; According to 2 Thessalonians 2:13, God’s grace sanctifies us. Not only that, God’s grace empowers us daily to do more (1 Corinthians 15:10 and Philippians 2:13). Because God’s grace restores, confirms, strengthens, and establishes us to aim high and achieve greater things than we ever thought impossible.
2 Corinthians 3:5 says, “Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God.”
Apostle Paul prayed and begged God three times, but God told him my grace is sufficient for you (2 Corinthians 12:9). So likewise, the grace of God is sufficient for your need and will see you through in whatever circumstance you might have found yourself. It might not look like you are going on the right path, but God will surely see you through. So don’t worry, God knows what you have passed through or will pass through; therefore, He knows what you need to go through, and that’s grace through Christ Jesus.
Brethren, you are under the influence of God’s grace. Your road map to enjoying the rest of the day and hours in 2021 has been paved by God’s grace. And the year 2022 has been fully established to bring you good news, good health, and prosperity in all areas of your life under God’s grace in Christ Jesus. However, as you enjoy God’s grace in every aspect of your life, remember from whom it comes; at what a price it was purchased because God’s grace shouldn’t be taken for granted.1 Peter 4:10 says, “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.”
