GROW IN GRACE

 
Audio Version with Audio Bible: http://bit.ly/28WVcbY 

2 Peter 3:18 KJV
But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.


Our salvation is by Grace from start to finish. (Eph 2:8-9) What Salvation affords us is access to Grace. Rom 5:2 KJV says '...we have access by faith into this grace...' We are however, supposed to grow in that Grace as we read in our main text. One major way we grow in grace is through knowledge. 2 Pet 1:2 says 'Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord'.

It is important that we define the kind of knowledge that multiplies our experience in the grace of Christ Jesus. It is not the 'knowledge about our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ' but 'knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ'. You may know so much about someone and yet not know the person at all.

Our knowledge of Christ is our intimacy with Him. 2 Cor 3:8 says we are being transformed when we behold His glory with an open face. This can only be a personal experience. You cannot behold Christ through someone else's face or lens. Even when we hear messages, we need to internalize them. That way, our knowledge of Christ is personal and unique.

How have you grown in your knowledge of Christ? What are your unique landmarks in your walk with Him? He longs to release special strengths into your spirit through those personal moments.

Go into the day, seeking to touch the heart of Jesus in study, prayer or in relating with other people.
