Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional April 22nd – Grow In Grace

(Grace Is Multiplied As You Grow In God’s Word)

TO THE BIBLE: 2 Peter 3:18
“…Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.”

LET’S TALK
When the Lord Jesus was a child, the Bible says He “…grew and became strong in spirit, filled with wisdom; and the grace of God was upon Him” (Luke 2:40).

Even as a young guy, Jesus had favour with God and man (Luke 2:52). Barnabas, one of the Lord’s apostles, went visiting certain Christians at their homes. He had heard good things about them, and when he got to them, he “…saw the grace of God…” (Acts 11:23 RSV).

What do you think Barnabas saw, a halo beaming over their heads? No, what he saw was the beauty of God in their lives and the way things worked out excellently with them.

Grace refers to the divine influence in a human heart, which reflects on the outside, producing favour, beauty, goodwill, loveliness, and ability. And it increases as you grow in the knowledge of God’s Word. When you allow “grace” to work in your life, it will cause favour and glory to burst forth in your life.

Also, grace is the power of promotion; it causes your life to move from one level to another, and that’s why the Bible says we must grow in it. The good news is that you have received grace in abundance (Romans 5:17), but the degree to which you let it reflect is up to you.

The more you fill your heart with God’s Word, and have the Holy Spirit work in your life, the greater that grace will manifest in and through you. Increase in that outward reflection of the glory of God by increasing in the knowledge of the Lord today.

Go Deeper
John 1:14; Ephesians 4:7; 2 Peter 1:2

Speak:
I’m growing in grace and in the knowledge of Jesus Christ. The beauty of God in my spirit is bursting forth on the outside in an undeniable fashion. Excellence, glory, virtue and success are the hallmarks of my life, because of this grace, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
