My grace is sufficient for you…
The Greek word for grace can be defined as favor. Favor means good will, generosity, mercy, approval. When God gives His grace to us, He extends to us His generosity, His mercy, His good will, His favor. He showers down on His children all the might and favor of a loving Father. How can this approval and generosity, this mercy and favor NOT be sufficient for us?
Grace is so much more than a theological truth to be debated and dissected. It is the lifeblood of our faith; the very essence of our relationship with God!
There are so many verses about His grace, and they all bless my heart and fill me with such gratitude and joy. I think today, I’m just going to share some of them and let His Word speak for Him in this post.
