Topic: Understand Grace, Walk in Faith – by
Scripture: “For it is by grace [God’s remarkable compassion and favor drawing you to Christ] that you have been saved [actually delivered from judgment and given eternal life] through faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [not through your own effort], but it is the [undeserved, gracious] gift of God.” – Ephesians 2:8 (AMP)
Most of us are aware that it is by grace that we are saved, but I wonder how many people truly understand the power of God’s grace.
Everything we receive from God must come by grace through faith. So when you understand grace, you can walk in faith and receive God’s blessings.
God’s grace isn’t complicated or confusing. It is simple, and that’s why many people miss it. There is nothing more powerful than grace. Everything in the Bible—salvation, the infilling of the Holy Spirit, fellowship with God and all victory in our daily lives—is based on it. Without grace, we are nothing, we have nothing, we can do nothing.
Today, don’t just hear about grace, but understand that everything in our lives depends not on our merits or abilities or works, but on God’s willingness to use His infinite power to meet our needs. This is grace.
Focus on that truth today and watch your faith grow.
