Through Him also we have [our] access (entrance, introduction) by faith into this grace (state of God’s favor) in which we [firmly and safely] stand. And let us rejoice and exult in our hope of experiencing and enjoying the glory of God. —Romans 5:2
Actually, the grace of God is not complicated or confusing. It is simple, and that’s why many people miss it. There is nothing more powerful than grace. In fact, everything in the Bible—salvation, the infilling of the Holy Spirit, fellowship with God, and all victory in our daily lives—is based upon it. Without grace, we are nothing, we have nothing, we can do nothing. If it were not for the grace of God, we would all be miserable and hopeless.
In Luke 2:40 we are told that as a child, Jesus grew and became strong in spirit, filled with wisdom; and the grace (favor and spiritual blessing) of God was upon Him. This verse contains everything we need to be happy, healthy, prosperous, and successful in our Christian walk.
We often talk about all the things we need, but in reality there is only one thing that we need, and it is the same thing that Jesus needed: we need to become strong in spirit, filled with God’s wisdom and having His grace upon us. If you and I will allow the grace of God to have full reign in our life, nothing will be impossible to us. Without that grace, nothing is possible to us.
As Paul wrote to the believers in his day, everything we are and do and have is by the grace of God. You and I are one hundred percent helpless. Although we often confess as Paul did, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me,” that is only true by the grace of God (SEE Romans 3:24; 1 Corinthians 15:10; Ephesians 2:8).
