My Journey with the Lord: A Topical Study on God’s Grace

Has anyone ever studied God’s Grace? It is actually a very abstract idea and difficult to put into words. However I want to share what I found with everybody as it was very enlightening and interesting. Firstly, God’s grace is free, but we are instructed “not to receive it in vain.” 2 Cor. 6:1. I didn’t research that concept much except to think maybe it means don’t get saved and then carry on sinning in the same old way because that is receiving it in vain? One of the biggest lessons I came away with was this (my words summed up) ” God’s grace saved us and through His grace we receive spiritual gifts and blessings. We should all honor each others as partakers of the same blessings and as we are part of the same body, and work hard to help each develop our spiritual gifts. The most important concept of being a Christian obviously being to love.” 1 Cor. 12 & 13. Remember that all good things we learn come from God. That goes for everyone. Each and every good lesson that makes us better people is not something that we accomplish on our own. God’s Grace is literally God’s favor and blessings and love that has be freely bestowed on us undeserving humans. Interestingly enough my original study started on discovering the meaning of “enlighten my eyes” as stated by the Psalmist in Ps. 13:3 and then went on to Shine light, Hope, Calling, then to Ephesians 3:2-3, 5 “dispensation of the Grace of God” and that is when I started really studying grace. If you are like me you just accept that we are saved by God’s grace, but what does that mean and what does such honor entail? Share your thoughts!!! Love to all!
