The God of All Grace

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. To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever, Amen.1 Peter 510-11

The God of all grace! Love His title. The true and living God has all kinds and all measures of grace that He wants to impart into our lives. One of His grace attribute’s is that He allows us to dwell in His glorious abode of eternal glory by Christ Jesus. This is ours by the atoning death of Jesus Christ, our mediator. “He is the Mediator of the new covenant {of grace}, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant {of law}, that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.” (Hebrews 9:15). Meanwhile, until He returns for us, He wants to develop us spiritually (“perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you”). Part of His plan is to perfect our lives. Note, this does not mean sinless perfection, this speaks of God completing what is missing and equiping us for service. Christians are to live with understanding that God’s purposes realized in the future often require the painful enduring of the present. We are not immune to sickness, or the harsh realities of this everchanging world. But I can say that God will not waste not one hardship in our lives. Meaning He is able to turn a negative situation into a possitive for His glory (Genesis 50:20). Part of God’s plan for us is to establish our lives: This has to do with the Lord stabilizing our Christian walk, by keeping us steadfastly moving in the direction He has called us to.

This word was used to describe Jesus’ unswerving commintment toward the cross, and resurrection that awaited Him in Jerusalem. ” Now it came to pass, when the time had come for Him to be received up, that He steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem.” (Luke 9:51)  And part of God’s plan is to strengthen our lives, our calling to serve Christ requires strength to serve which we do not have within ourselves. The Lord wants to teach us how to draw upon His mighty power, Paul the apostle prayed for that for the Ephesian church: “That He would grant you to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man” (Ephesians 3:16). And finally from our text God’s plan is to settle us this involves us being increased more and more with knowledge and understanding to be enriched in every way. As you therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving. (Colossians 2:6-7) To walk in Christ is to live a life patterned after His.

Perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle—-These four words all speak of strength and resoluteness. God is working through the Christian’s struggles to produce strength of character. In effective maturity that is infused in us through our trials and the perfecting of us through His love, God is at work in every Christians’s heart right now. He only knowing the full outcome, we will walk by faith in belief that as we rely on His power and trust in His Word, we will be victorious in this life, and this will bring glory and honor to our Lord.

Beloved friend, The God of all grace is Jesus Christ, And He has resources we nothing about! He will deliver you wherever you are in the present time, perfecting in you His sanctifying grace that will transform you into what He wants for you.

May the Lord bless your walk!
