We know that grace is so important for salvation, because we are saved by grace through faith, Grace once we are saved relieves our gears because we know where we are going upon death when we enter eternity, we know that our sins are firgiven and that we are no longer under condemnation--just to name a few.
But grace is also is important in our day to day Christian living. It relieves our fears of feeling like we have to earn other people's acceptance and performance. By walking by grace we are freed from having to think that we must convince people that we are someone that we are not. We don't have to waste time comparing ourselves to others or fearing what others think about us.We have nothing to hide. We are able to be honest and real before God--knowing that we are already perfectly loved and will never be loved any less.
Have a joyous year in 2013 walking in His grace!
