What do you think of when you think of grace? Unmerited favor? Forgiveness? Charity? This episode is the first in a new series we will look at throughout this month. The grace of God is so much more than most of us realize or have been taught. That is why we want to focus on discovering grace to start out this year!
Grace is the energy of God that He uses not only to save us but to change us and shape us. In this podcast episode, JB Shreve explains that if you make the grace of God your primary focus this year, you will see the changes in your life you have been looking for! Join us in this podcast series as we discover grace from God again!
Before time began He planned to give us in Christ Jesus the grace to achieve this purpose…
2 Timothy 1:9 Phillips Translation
Concerning this salvation, the prophets who prophesied about the grace [energy of God] that was to be yours searched and inquired carefully, 11 inquiring what person or time the Spirit of Christ in them was indicating when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the subsequent glories. 12 It was revealed to them that they were serving not themselves but you, in the things that have now been announced to you through those who preached the good news to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven, things into which angels long to look. 1 Peter 1:10-12 (ESV)
For the grace of God [the energy of God] has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, Titus 2:11-12 (ESV)
We encourage you to join us for each episode in this podcast series but also in your personal Bible Study as we spend the month discovering grace from God!
