"But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen." -2 Peter 3:18 (ESV)
I love the word g r a c e. When you think of what the word really means and how it applies to our Spiritual walk, it’s something you want to be. It represents freedom not only from sin, but our own imperfections. Because of grace, we don’t have to be perfect for God to accept us. We don’t have to impress Him. He knows we’re human.
It’s not just about accepting grace but learning how to give it as well. We have to give it to ourselves. When we feel like failures we can safely run to Him and He will always accept our broken pieces because of grace. That’s how we need to treat others.
Has somebody hurt you or made you angry? Pray for grace. Set your roots in the abundant grace that God gives. There’s plenty for everyone. It’s a place we can always g r o w.
