Often times I think what does Grace really mean to me? What is Grace?
So I embarked on a definition journey so from the Encyclopedia I found this as definition:
grace noun \ˈgrās\
: a way of moving that is smooth and attractive and that is not stiff or awkward
: a controlled, polite, and pleasant way of behaving
graces : skills that are needed for behaving in a polite way in social situations
So as I thought about it, who is the supreme creator of Grace, God, right?
What does the Bible say about Grace:
Romans 5:15 (NIV) But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many!
Romans 5:17(NIV) For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ!
1 Corinthians 16:23 (NIV) The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you.
Consider what Paul has said about Grace, each different scripture he wrote had Jesus name as Grace. So as you think about what the world considers the definition of Grace and what Paul says, Jesus is Grace by definition of the word of God, that’s the Bible my friend!
