What do you know about Giving and Sharing God’s Grace? Do you know the meaning of Grace?  “What is grace? In the New Testament grace means God’s love in action towards men who merited the opposite of love. Grace means God moving heaven and earth to save sinners who could not lift a finger to save themselves. Grace means God sending His only Son to descend into hell on the cross so that we guilty ones might be reconciled to God and received into heaven. God hath made him be sin for us, who knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God in him” 2 Corinthians 5:21. “Grace may be defined as the unmerited or undeserving favor of God to those who are under condemnation.”

Definition of God’s Grace and what does the Bible say?
“This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus” Romans 3:22-24.

“In him, we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace”  Ephesians 1:7.

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God, not by works so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do”. Ephesians 2:8-10.

“For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. John 1:17.

“For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ!” Romans 5:17.

If you’re finding yourself having to GIVE and  SHARE grace to one another,

Galatians 6:1-2 gives us a picture of a Spirit-led grace-giver: “Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. Bear one another burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” This is what it means to give grace to one another.
We recognize the grace we received at salvation is continuing its work as a change agent in our lives Philippians 1:6.
This kind of grace-giving doesn’t delight in calling out sin and isn’t prideful about being a truth-teller. This is a person deeply committed to the spiritual vitality of others and deeply attuned to their own spiritual poverty without Christ.
There is humility, discretion, and a willingness to go the extra mile for others, a devotion to the family of God. And, perhaps most importantly, a grace-giver has positioned oneself to receive from friends the very same truth and grace that she or he is committed to giving that God asks of us. We live in a sin-filled world that is full of hate, despair, darnkess and a lost souls that have not found a relationship with the Lord Jesus. Remember to be patient and kind to them. Remember we are not saints nor should we try to be. God forgives you of your sins when you can forgive others that trespass against you. God wants us to love one another and be patient and kind. I know it is hard to do so in this ugly world right now but, soon the Lord is coming to take all of that away and make new.
