I am reading 1 Peter 5:10 and it reads like this:
1 Peter 5:10 (NKJV)10 But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. source
But may the GOD of all grace . . .
The GOD of all grace. All the grace I will ever need. That is Who He is.
What is grace anyway? Some say grace is the unmerited favor of GOD.
I don’t disagree with that.
Is there any more?
The Hebrew word for our English word grace is chen (with a sign over the e which my keyboard does not have).
According to my Strong’s Interlinear Search, it means Acceptance.
I have been ACCEPTED by Him, the GOD of all grace! And that acceptance is UNMERITED. I did not earn it. I could not earn it. No amount of good works will get me grace. You either.
So, how? How did GOD the perfect Holy One, how did He accept me? Read on.
Who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus!
Jesus must have known what He was talking about when He said:
John 14:6 (NKJV) 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. source
So are you Accepted? How do you know you are?
