I strongly belief that as the new creation that we have been recreated into, Grace is all we need to live today. “What is Grace?” one might ask. Grace is unearned, unmerited favor. Receiving the good that we do not deserve or did not even earn, Grace is Jesus. 2 Corinthians 12:9, The Apostle Paul explains how Jesus said to him, “My Grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” The new living translation brings it down to such perfect sense, “My Grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness,” this drives the point safely home; all Paul needed was Grace, Jesus Himself.
Paul, a man so great, who wrote most of the New Testament, came to a consciousness that all he needed was Grace to overcome his weaknesses. This just goes down to proving how we as the bride of Christ need his Grace to make it through our day-to-day life. So in essence, my concentration on this blog will be intrinsically about Grace; Grace is a person, Grace is the true Gospel that Jesus’s bride should be taking robust pride in. Without a shadow of a doubt, 2 Corinthians 4:6, “… has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ,” portrays us knowing this glory, and indeed from the face of Christ emanates love and favor not judgment and condemnation. In a nutshell, Grace is what He is abundantly full of. The greatest glory that mankind should be aware of is Grace.
John 1:17, “For the law was given through Moses; Grace and truth came through Jesus Christ,” it is one thing to give, you can give from a distance but coming personally is more intimate and cordial. The law was all about finding faults and demanding perfection from us men but Grace came to give, display affection, exhibit companionship with God and most importantly impart extreme perfection into us. YES! I said EXTREME PERFECTION, Jesus is that much contagious. He exerts beauty and magnificence. Grace is the highest definition of who Jesus is.
So going on forth, I will be focusing intently on Grace, differentiating between Law and Grace, but most essentially magnifying on Who Grace is. How perfectly He loves us and how He has perfected us and transformed us into His very essence and ultimately His Grace makes us HIM today.
