The Grace Of God

by Hazel Straub

The grace that God gives us cannot be bought or earned but is a free gift given to believers that call on the Lord Jesus Christ. His blood saves us from death and makes us righteous. The church in ancient Corinth had many temples to idols that had corrupt practices, that made them feel nothing could cleanse them of their guilt and sin. They had been forgiven much and understood the grace of God. Those who have been forgiven much are the most grateful and know it is not given on merit. God has adopted us and grants favor. He never gives up on us.

Grace and favor are shown repeatedly in the Bible. Favor was given to Noah and he and his family were saved from the flood, (Genesis 6:8) God’s grace and favor was given to so many in the Bible, including Joseph as a slave, with his master who made him overseer. God’s favor was granted Joseph to rule in the prison and then he had favor with Pharaoh and ruled in Egypt. God’s intervention gives us divine favor that we do not deserve and has no limits because God is limitless. There is always God’s grace for us and is not dependent on our performance but on the unlimited goodness of God. It includes redemption, deliverance, abundance of all resources, healing, miracles, word of knowledge and many others. (1 Corinthians 12:4-10; 1 Corinthians 12:28; Romans 12:6-8; Ephesians 4:11; 1 Corinthians 13:3; Romans 8:26-27, 1 Peter 4:9) What limits the grace of God? Unbelief! Believe God and do not limit him.

To all my readers grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ!

“To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who have been sanctified in Christ Jesus, saints by calling, with all who in every place call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God always concerning you for the grace of God which was given you in Christ Jesus,  that in everything you were enriched in Him, in all speech and all knowledge,  even as the testimony concerning Christ was confirmed in you, so that you are not lacking in any gift, awaiting eagerly the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ,  who will also confirm you to the end, blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.” (1 Corinthians 1: 2-9 NASB 1995)

  5. Beautiful post! Grace multiplies by knowledge. “Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord.” (2 Peter.1:2).It is our understanding of the word of God that determines the level of our grace. It is a pity that grace has been grossly abused by many Christians. We avoid responsibility in the name of grace. It is our responsibility to strive for a strong revelation by settling down to delightful studies. Then, our grace will improve.
