In this teaching, being strong in God’s grace is broken down into remembering what we’ve received, how to be strong in grace in our own lives, and how to be strong in grace towards others. Grace is unmerited divine favor. We have God’s grace, but we have to accept it. Grace has been freely given to us; we don’t deserve it, we can’t earn it, and we can’t repay it. God is not waiting for us to pay Him back for the power on high we’ve received. It is a free gift to us from God, and we are worth the price He paid. Paul said “by the grace of God I am what I am.” His physical credentials did not make him spiritually strong. We’ve already been judged righteous. We are going to be the most blessed when we are strong in God and not in ourselves. We can reign in life even without lots of money, social media, or fancy cars. We are free, and when we walk in grace, we walk in light of that freedom. Other people need this freedom too. We need to stop being so hard on ourselves and other people because, at the end of the day, we are all “grace cases.” When we forget God’s grace, we are going to be the one to cast that first stone. We want to be strong in God’s grace, to minister grace, and to find grace to help in time of need.
