Grow In Grace
II Peter 3:18
ÖGrow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be glory both now and for ever.
What is grace? The Student Bible Dictionary (P.106) provides several definitions for grace and they are: (a) Godís favor (Genesis 6:8), (b) Godís free gift and underserved love that never quits (Ephesians 2:8), (c) Grace is the gift of God that comes as eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23). That being said, how do you define grace or what does grace means to you? The most profound definition of God's grace is Godís Righteousness at Christís Expense. Additionally, grace to me is Godís favor and love on display in that He gave His best so that all believers can spend eternity with Him.
Letís us look at grace in terms of Godís favor which is His kindness, love and good will that He sheds on us daily. God favors us with His presence that can be seen in nature. Godís presence is felt in the times of trouble.
God left His holy word as our guide as well as the Holy Spirit who lives in every believer to teach, guide and direct our paths and serves as our protector. Godís Word reveals the holiness of God, His will and ways and every believer are to grow in the knowledge and grace/favor of God so that we as believers become more like His Son Jesus Christ.
We grow in the grace and knowledge of God through daily Bible reading, meditating on His word and prayer.
