(2 Pet 1:2 NIV) “Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.”
As we renew our minds, and grow in the knowledge of God, grace increases in our lives; increasing all that we attain through grace.
Faith Is Our Foundation. Grace is God reaching out to you, faith is you reaching out to God. Faith receives of the grace of God, faith is useless without Grace.
(Rom 4:16 NIV) “Therefore, The Promise comes by faith, so that it may be by grace and may be guaranteed to all Abraham’s offspring‑‑not only to those who are of the law but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham. He is the Father of us all.”
“Offspring,” meaning to all who call on His Name, there is no lack for all time and eternity. There is plenty to go around, sufficient for every need. It is “by grace” not of works, that no one is fooled into believing they have earned their place in The Kingdom.
Grace and Faith go hand in hand. What God gives in grace; we must appropriate by faith.
(2 Pet 1:3 NIV) “His Divine Power (Grace) has given us everything we need for life and Godliness through our knowledge of Him who called us by His own Glory and Goodness.”
We can count on God to provide us with all that we need to fulfill His call on our lives, AND to walk according to His Word. We need not look at the scripture and say, “this is too hard, I am not able.” Not only does He call us to walk, He gives us the legs to walk on!
