Unlimited: The Meaning of Grace!
Mar 26, 2017 2310
My grace is all you need (2 Corinthians 12:9).
“Grace” is a popular girl’s name, but how many people know the meaning of grace? The meaning of the name “Grace” is “continual favour,” “eternal love,” “unfailing kindness,” and “tender mercy” – all of those things rolled into one!
Grace challenges us at every level of our being because the Bible tells us that grace is for the graceless. It’s not grace if it’s given to the deserving. The Bible shows us how God is the example of the meaning of Grace because of who He is:
- For God so loved the world (John 3:16) …That’s grace!
- This Man receives sinners (Luke 15:2) …That’s grace!
- Every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven to men (Matthew 12:31) …That’s grace!
The grace of God has blessed every believer through faith in Jesus Christ:
- For the law was given through Moses; grace… came through Jesus Christ (John 1:17).
The Meaning of Grace is Love Incarnate in Jesus
Grace is not some abstract theological concept. Grace is love incarnate in the person of Jesus Christ. Grace came to us at Bethlehem, on the shores of Lake Galilee, and a hill outside Jerusalem. And Grace comes to us today.
I think more babies should be named “Grace” and so more parents can share the Gospel with people who ask them what they have named their baby!
What does your name mean? Look it up. Do you live up to what your name means? If not, there’s grace for you! In what area of your life do you most need grace? Pray for it and receive it with gratitude.
