How to grow in grace

2 Peter 3:18, “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.”

How do I grow in grace? Grace is mercy and pardon. Perhaps by extending grace to others we can grow our “grace muscles.” Is there anyone on your heart and mind today that needs your grace, pardon, and forgiveness extended to them? Funny how the word grace is before knowledge; without learning how to extend grace to others we cannot grow in the knowledge of Jesus Christ. Growing in the knowledge of Jesus Christ without learning how to extend grace is just an exercise in religion: dead, hollow religion. But extending grace is the real stuff, partnering with Jesus Christ, allowing Him to extend his grace and forgiveness to others through you, even when you don’t want to.

Grow in grace and the rest will follow…
