God’s grace is wonderful. The Bible calls it lavish, overflowing, and abundant. It saves and forgives and gives us strength, power, and boldness to obey. God gives it in great quantities for our needs, whatever they are, and it is always sufficient for those needs.
If you look for the word grace in the Bible, you will find expressions like these:
"Now Stephen, a man full of God’s grace and power, did great wonders and miraculous signs among the people" (Acts 6:8).
"When the congregation was dismissed, many of the Jews and devout converts to Judaism followed Paul and Barnabas, who talked with them and urged them to continue in the grace of God" (Acts 13:43).
"Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ" (1 Corinthians 1:3).
Grace belongs to God, and He gives it to us.
Now do the same search with the word faith.
"For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints…" (Ephesians 1:15).
"I have declared to both Jews and Greeks that they must turn to God in repentance and have faith in our Lord Jesus" (Acts 20:21).
"So keep up your courage, men, for I have faith in God that it will happen just as he told me" (Acts 27:25).
Faith belongs to man. It is also a gift from God, and it is to be placed in Him.
Here are two verses to meditate on:
"Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand" (Romans 5:1-2a).
"When Apollos wanted to go to Achaia, the brothers encouraged him and wrote to the disciples there to welcome him. On arriving, he was a great help to those who by grace had believed" (Acts 18:27).
