He has saved us and called us to a holy life–not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus. 2 Timothy 1:9
When a life is touched by Christ, he/she is eager to repent and turn away from past sins. They long to obey the word of God because they are in love with their Saviour and want to please Him in every way. They are so grateful to Him for His saving grace and do not take His grace for granted and continue to sin under the guise of grace. God’s grace enables us to live and grow and thrive in Him. His grace builds us up and helps us bear fruit.
I don’t want to be left where grace initially found me. I want to grow up in Christ, so I may reflect to others what grace is like.
