But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever.
Much has been written concerning God's grace, which is His favor. His unmerited gift that was shown to mankind as well as the love gift that keeps on giving. Additionally, God's grace is His gift that leads to eternal life that comes through Jesus Christ (Romans 6:23). God's grace was given to reestablish an intimate relationship with man where justice was demanded, but mercy took its place.
That being said, believers are indebted to grow in the grace and knowledge of God and draw closer to Him in obedience to His righteousness. This is because of His unmatchless love for man. We grow in the grace of God as He continues to bless us with His favor, love, and mercy. God's grace is His endless love.
Believers grow in God's grace through studying and meditating on His Word, communicating constantly with Him through pray, and yielding control to the Holy Spirit. When reading God's Word ask the Holy Spirit for divine interpretation of what He is saying and His intended application for your life. This is gaining knowledge and understanding of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
God's grace is sufficient; His mercy suits our case and is everlasting.
