'BEFORE THE MOUNTAINS WERE BROUGHT FORTH, OR EVER THOU HADST FORMED THE EARTH AND THE WORLD, FROM EVERLASTING TO EVERLASTING THOU ART GOD.' [KJV PSALM 90:2]

Welcome back my friends, after the 'remembrance' of the most outstanding 'act of love' God did for whosoever calls upon Him in repentance unto salvation - The Remembrance of the Death, Burial, Resurrection and Ascension of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Please review the 'series' The Last Week in the Life of Jesus Christ, Special Devotions, Week Post A-1, Sunday, April 5, 2020 - Sunday, April 12, 2020.
Now, in our post on March 15, 2020, [also used for March 29, 2020], we started to study Second Peter 3:18 which told us to “grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.” Let's continue our series, as I promised. Let's continue for a few posts, dissecting what is further meant by this matter. Before we are finished, I want to post a few posts with some passages of Holy Bible Scriptures for your prayerful meditation and memorization on 'the milk and meat' of the word that I believe will be most helpful.
Continuing from April 19, 2020.
Understanding and applying God’s grace in our lives is important. We are not to impair it by being proud, because God says that 'He resists the proud but gives grace to the humble'. (James 4:6). Grace is that attribute of God that enables us to break free of our sinful nature and follow Him. 'Not my will, but thy will be done.' [Luke 22:42-44] It gives us strength and protects us. Without God’s grace, His favor, we would be hopelessly lost in this world. The more grace we have and ask God for, the more mature as Christians we will be.
Now, as we 'humans' are always trying to 'collect or accumulate' things, or, to be about what we think we should be about, to work things out, ourselves, let me remind you that 'to grow in grace' does not mean gaining more grace from God. God’s grace never increases; it is infinite, it cannot be more, and according to the nature of God, it could never be less. He gave His only Son so that whoever believes in Him should be 'saved'.
(Salvation is 'three-stages'. John 3:16, takes into consideration 'justification'; saved from the penalty of sin, which is the moment one first believes in Jesus Christ; 'sanctification', a live-long process, saved from the power of sin; and 'glorification', ultimately, when we die, or, Jesus returns; saved from the presence of sin. See our post dated April 19, 2020 in this series.). audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
How much more grace could there possibly be than that?
But 'to grow in grace' is 'to grow in our understanding of what Jesus did' and 'to grow in our appreciation of the grace' we have been given. Therefore, the more we learn about Jesus, and what He taught and practiced, the more we will appreciate all He has done, and the more we appreciate His love and sacrifice for us, the more we will perceive the never-ending grace of God. Then, the more we will respond to the leading AND empowerment of and by the Holy Spirit in all circumstances, responding - JUST LIKE JESUS! WOW! Further, that is exactly how we 'mature' in 'the grace of God'.
The Scriptures contain all the knowledge we will ever need to learn of God, His Son, and His Spirit, at least in this life. God`s desire for those He has saved, [justified], is their sanctification and transformation through the remainder of our earthly lives. He wants us to become more holy like Himself. He wants to transform us into the image of His Son. The way to do this is by meditating on the Scriptures and applying their principles to our lives as we yield to the conviction and power of the Holy Spirit who dwells within us. Then we will prove 2 Corinthians 3:18: “We, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into His likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord.” audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html Amen.
