What does God’s grace do besides equip us to get through hard times? What does grace accomplish?
God’s grace saves you. The Bible says we “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23), but praise God! By His grace He offers us salvation: “For by grace you have been saved through faith” (Ephesians 2:8). God’s grace is poured out on you through Jesus Christ. As one hymn writer expressed it, “Marvelous, infinite, matchless grace, freely bestowed on all who believe.”
God’s grace guides you. Paul said, “By the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain” (1 Corinthians 15:10). No matter your background or past or the challenges that stood in you path, God patiently guides you by His grace. God has a plan for you, and He means for you to live it out.
God’s grace empowers you. Whatever you now face or ever will face, you can count on God! You can be content and at peace because God’s grace provides all you need now and forever. The psalmist believed and professed, “The Lord will perfect that which concerns me” (Psalm 138:8).
God’s grace is sufficient for you. “Sufficient” is a tremendously comforting word that means ample, enough, adequate. Through God’s grace, you have all you need—salvation, the ability to live for Christ, and the way home to glory.
