Ephesians 2:8-9 (NLT) God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God.
When Sandra first believed in the Lord Jesus, she didn’t fully grasp the depth of God’s grace. She learned that grace meant receiving undeserved favor, and it was this favor that saved her. However, she didn’t realize that grace also meant God giving her the strength and ability to do what He asked of her.
Because of this misunderstanding, Sandra struggled in her Christian journey. She was told to pray for up to an hour every day, but managing even 15 minutes felt like a challenge. Often, she found herself repeating the same prayers multiple times.
A turning point came when Sandra deepened her understanding of God’s grace. Suddenly, she tapped into the Lord’s strength, enabling her to achieve things she once thought impossible. This transformation occurred as she began listening to sermons on her smartphone, a device previously used mainly for communication and entertainment. Through this, she fed her soul with substantial portions of God’s word daily, leading to a richer comprehension of His grace.
Being a Christian isn’t possible without the empowering grace of God. This grace is channeled to your spirit through the Holy Spirit, who dwells within you. The more you allow the Holy Spirit to fill you, the more of God’s grace you’ll experience. This happens as you grow in your understanding of the Lord and become more like Him. Filling your heart with the words of Christ is the way this happens(.
It is through grace that we are saved. It’s through grace that we encounter anything that comes from God.
As you step into today, remember that your journey with God is sustained by His grace, and this grace is abundantly available to you through the Holy Spirit.
Prayer: Take a moment to thank the Lord for saving you.
Now, ask our heavenly Father to fill you with the Holy Spirit (see Luke 11:13).
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
