It is an amazing thing to watch God’s grace at work in the lives of people. God says that He resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble (James 4:6). At the very base of our souls, there is much pride. When Adam and Eve sinned against God, they were in effect saying, “God, Who You are, and what You say, do not matter–it is who I am and what I say that matters.” This is the essence of pride that demonstrates itself in our lives in the deepest parts of our minds, wills, and emotions. We want to be God–we are proud people. So, we are constantly in need of grace. God’s grace must in fact need to be flowing in our hearts every day because of the pride that swells in our souls. So, to remind me–and possibly others who would read, I want to blog about the grace of God that I see at work in life–my life, and others. So, here we go.
Life is all about God–who He is and what He has done, is doing, and will do. He divinely enables me to live out the righteousness that He has given. I need that grace not only for salvation, but for continued sanctification as well. The questions I ask are: How is grace obtained, how is it appropriated, and why is it important for the child of God every day? I’d love to know your thoughts. I’ll update more later. I am a rookie at this, so bear with me.
