God’s grace is the greatest gift ever offered you, with infinite stores of power. As you understand this grace better, live in it more fully, and give it away more generously, you will experience more freedom, purpose, and joy than ever before.
Discipleship Pathway > Understand Grace Better
The center of the Christian life is the grace of God. Understanding God’s great gift of grace more clearly is central to growth as a disciple. Salvation by grace is not the end of the grace story. You don’t receive God’s grace in the beginning and then store it away in gratitude. God continues to pour out His grace in your daily life as a follower of Jesus.
God’s gift of grace is ever-active in the life of the Christian disciple. It informs all relationships and serves as the foundation for spiritual gifts, service, and mission. Grace is also one of God’s great teachers in discipleship, training the followers of Jesus to deny ungodliness and press on towards holiness and service. Grace never quits in the life of the Christian disciple. Thus, it is vital for the follower of Jesus to constantly seek to understand God’s gift better.
