Growing In Grace

grace and mercy

When we Repent and Accept and commit our way to Our Lord, Our Redeemer and Our Friend, an immediate transformation of our personalities occurs. Our weakness of our character are replaced by strength and an an indescribable confidence fills our lives.

That is the start of a wonderful journey in and with God. But as time goes on, sometimes our excitement and enthusiasm grows weary., and that the passion that came with our excitement and enthusiasm starts to wain.

Like anything if we are not growing, we are stagnating, but we need to realize we are no longer planted in the world we are planted in His Grace. The world and it system will pass away, but In Christ will will live for eternity.

2 Peter 3 verse 18; {Amplified Bible};

“But grow in grace {undeserved favor, spiritual strength} and recognition and knowledge and understanding of our Lord and Savor Jesus Christ, The Messiah. To Him [be} glory {honor, majesty and splendor} both now and to the day of eternity, Amen –so be it”.

The secret of a believer’s growth is to grow in Grace {undeserved favor, spiritual strength}. We are in the world but not of it, let be desirous of kingdom practices.

Ephesians 4 verse 15 and 16:

V15: “But speaking the Truth in love, let us grow in every way into Him who is The head –Christ,”

V17: “From Him the whole body, fitted and knit together by every supporting ligament, promotes the growth of the body for building up itself in love by the proper working of each individual part.”

The responsibility for growing is ours, but we are never alone, and we have help for growing, through His undeserved favor “GRACE”.

Our excitement and enthusiasm from our repentant, acceptance and commitment, should be part of an ongoing process, and should be strengthen by studying His Word, and communicating with Him regularly {Prayer}, and actively being about His business, loving, sharing, helping and witness.

In His Kingdom we can never grow to much, but how much we grow, is up to us all.

God Bless.
