From the story of 2 Samuel 9:1-13 David showing Grace to a crippled Mephibosheth, the grand-son of an enemy who hated him, I get 4 actions that come from the Grace-filled life David had:
1-Grace seeks and saves (2Sa 9:1-5).
2-Grace restores (2Sa 9:6-9).
3-Grace sustains (2Sa 9:10-12).
4-Grace exalts (2Sa 9:13).
When writing to saints across the land, the apostle Paul opened every letter with a salutation based on Grace ... and closed every letter with a blessing based on Grace.
Every time he said 'Hello', there was Grace. Every time he said 'Goodbye', there was Grace.
It was the most important wish he could have for those he loved.
What's my wish for others ?
One person who I believe captured the complete essence of Grace was the Duchess of Gordon, when she wrote :
O Lord, give me grace to feel the need of Thy grace; give me grace to ask for Thy grace; and when in Thy grace Thou hast given me grace, give me grace to use Thy grace.
I am on a journey to learn and experience biblical Grace. This page holds my 'oh wow, I didn't know that about Grace' moments based on the research discoveries you read on this website. This is my personal journal to my 2Pt 3:18 growth and understanding of this infinitely deep concept.
