It’s a glorious word. It’s a precious word. It’s a misunderstood word. We often think of grace as our allowance, a token that God gives us in and of itself. Grace, however, is not a substance to be passed around, but a person, the Lord Jesus Christ. In 2 Timothy 2.1 Paul encourages Timothy to be strengthened by God’s grace, which is not ‘from’ him, but rather is ‘in’ Christ Jesus. The christian life is not about getting things from Jesus, but it is about getting Jesus, and all things in him.
