HOW TO GROW IN GRACE

HOW TO GROW IN GRACE

But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen. 2 Peter 3:18

Grace is lavishly displayed in the way that the son of God came to earth as a man to die for our sins. Taking insights from Open Heavens Devotional for 14th and 15th, we learn a couple of things about Grace.

Grace is free to all men but it was purchased at a very costly price – The blood of Jesus. So we must never trivialise grace or take it for granted.

Grace has the ability to save us from ourselves. When we get into bondages and captivity as a result of sin, Christ delivers us when we call to him and repent. Grace is a beautiful thing.

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8

 

The two scriptures above indicate that it is possible to grow in Grace. How?

1. LISTENING TO, AND OBEYING SCRIPTURE.

Our scripture from 2 Peter says “But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ… “.
Grace is the author of Grace. If you will grow in Grace, you must personally come to encounter and know who Christ is, listen to His Word, and obey them.

This is achieved through constant study of the Bible and consistently going to the church to learn about Christ. Devote yourself to prayer and Bible study and experience growth.

2. DOING GOOD.

The second scripture says that God is able to grant us more Grace. This means that God is able to add Grace unto us, to the end that we grow in Grace. It proceeds to say that the reason God grants us all Grace is so that we can have everything we need to do good works.

So we can simply say that God grants us Grace to do good. Thus, if we begin to do good with the little that we have now, more Grace will be supplied to do more. The Grace of God makes our life beautiful and easy by first granting us access to eternal life and then providing everything we need to live a godly and fulfilling life.

Say this prayer: Father, I want to grow in Grace. Please, multiply your Grace in my life.
