Grace Upon Grace

Out of God’s heart came love; out of His love came mercy; out of His mercy came grace.

We are saved by grace (Ephesians 2:8)
God did all the work to make our salvation possible. He paid the complete price so we could receive His full salvation as a free gift. His salvation is a finished work, a perfect work, a final work.

Grace is not wishful thinking, but a reality that is based upon the truth of the Gospel (Colossians 1:6)
Grace is ours to know, to experience, and to celebrate.

We are brought into peace through grace (2 John 1:3)
Grace delights in taking us by the hand and walking with us into the place of peace with God and into the place of enjoying the peace of God in our hearts.

We are able to grow in grace as a plant grows in soil (2 Peter 3:18)
An indicator of our maturity in Christ is the development of more graciousness in our character—giving us a softer tone, a quieter way, a kinder manner, and a gentler response.

Grace comes to us out of God’s great generosity (2 Peter 1:2)
In God’s mathematics, grace is not added to our lives, it is multiplied.

Grace is the response of God’s favor upon those who are dependent upon
(1 Peter 5:5)
The river of God’s grace flows into the lowly place of the heart.

Grace is what our hearts need to be established and secure (Hebrews 13:9)
Grace doesn’t get us worked up and stirred up, it quiets us down and enables us to settle into Christ’s life.

God brings His grace to the very center of who we are and what we desire (Philemon 1:25)
When grace is in our spirit, grace will also impact our thoughts, our choices, and our feelings.

Grace will impact our behavior for the good. (Colossians 4:6)
Grace is a life-changer, not only in our desires and motives, but in our understanding and in our speech.

We find grace at the place of grace, the mercy seat of God (Hebrews 4:16)
Out of God’s heart came love; out of His love came mercy; out of His mercy came grace.
