When Paul speaks of the grace of God in 1 Peter 4:10, he describes it as being many-sided or manifold… That’s because God’s grace is the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit at work within us. It’s His Divine influence on our hearts that’s reflected through our lives.
Grace is God’s enabling power in us transforming us into the image of Jesus Christ. Paul knew it was God’s grace that changed him from a notorious, hate-filled murderer of Christians, to one of the greatest carriers and advocates of the Gospel this world has ever seen.
Without the grace of God working in us, it’s impossible to live like Christ. Grace enables us to see ourselves through the finished work of the cross. It gives us the confidence to seek and know God and continuously transforms us by the power of His Word as it renews our minds. Today, become more conscious of the enabling grace of God that’s at work in you. Embrace it and watch how it continuously empowers you to live your best life in Christ.
