๐Ÿ‘‘ Grace, And How This 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.

Subjectively, it is that loving attitude, or disposition, on Godโ€™s part, from which all His kindness toward us flows.

Objectively, it is all the kindness that flows from His love toward us.

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€

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!

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

What a prospect! Through the ages of eternity God will lavish His loving kindness upon us to demonstrate to all the universeย โ€œthe exceeding riches of His graceโ€ (Eph 2.7)! source
