๐Ÿ‘‘ Grace, And How It Affects Us

Ask the average believer what the Bible word โ€œgraceโ€ means, and he will doubtless reply, โ€œunmerited favorโ€.

Actually, however, grace is much more than this. Itย is that loving attitude, or disposition, on Godโ€™s part, from which all His kindness toward us flows.

Thus we read in Ephesians 2:2-6 that we wereย โ€œthe children of disobedienceโ€ย and thereforeย โ€œby nature the children of wrath, even as othersโ€.

โ€œBut God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) and hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.โ€

Note:ย This passage begins with those who were โ€œchildren of disobedienceโ€ and โ€œchildren of wrathโ€ and, saving them โ€œby grace,โ€ gives them a position in the heavenlies in Christ Jesus!

Godโ€™s grace to us as sinners was great indeed, for:

โ€œIn [Christ] we have redemption through His blood, THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS ACCORDING TO THE RICHES OF HIS [Godโ€™s] GRACE.โ€

But now, having given us a position in His beloved Son, Godโ€™s grace goes out to us in still greater measure.

Ephesians 1:6 declares that God has โ€œmade us accepted [Lit., โ€˜engraced usโ€™] in the Belovedโ€.

Beholding us in Christ, God loves us and delights in us more than any father ever delighted in his son, or any grandfather in that precious grandchild.

Thus, while in Ephesians 1:7 we read that we haveย โ€œredemptionโ€ฆ the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His graceโ€, in Ephesians 2:7 we see these riches of grace increased to us โ€œexceedinglyโ€, now that we occupy a position โ€œin the Belovedโ€:

โ€œThat in the ages to come He might show THE EXCEEDING RICHES OF HIS GRACEโ€ฆโ€

How?

โ€œโ€ฆin His kindness toward us through Christ Jesusโ€! source
