1 Peter 5:10-11 NIV 22011
And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.
Grace comes from God. Revelation 1:4b, “Grace and peace to you from him who is, and who was, and who is to come.” All believers receive God’s grace. Ephesians 1:7, “In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace.” Abraham received God’s grace. Galatians 3:18, “For if the inheritance depends on the law, then it no longer depends on the promise; but God in his grace gave it to Abraham through a promise.” All who follow Jesus Christ receive God’s great grace. Grace comes as a gift from God.
Billy Graham wrote, “Grace, according to the dictionary, is the unmerited favor of God toward mankind.” Nothing I could ever do would be enough to earn God’s grace. By choosing to follow Jesus Christ at a young age, I received God’s amazing grace. To this day whenever I sing “Amazing Grace” tears still well up in my eyes because I do not deserve His grace. He truly “saved a wretch like me.” Ephesians 1:7, “in accordance with the riches of God’s grace.” God’s gift to me is His grace.
What actually drives us to desire God’s grace daily?
Grateful saved sinners,
