Living in Christ with Pastor Bob Hoekstra

Growing in the Grace of God Overview. Part 1d

September 21, 2018

"But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." - 2 Peter 3:18

God wants us to know His grace. He wants us to learn about it and then experience it at work in our lives. Grace has rightly been described as “God’s unmerited favor.” The acrostic “God’s Riches at Christ’s Expense” captures even more of its majesty. Grace is God freely providing for us (as we trust in the work of His Son) all that we will ever need, all that we will ever yearn for, all that we could ever produce on our own, could never earn and never deserve. Grace offers what every human desperately needs, but what God alone can provide. This grace is found only in a person, the Lord Jesus. Thus it is accessible only through an ongoing relationship with Him.

About Living in Christ

The purpose of LICM could be stated most concisely as a ministry of "Proclaiming Christ to Christians." In order to grow in maturity and wholeness and fruitfulness and Christlikeness, we must be feeding on the truth from God's word about the Lord Jesus Christ, who lives in us as our hope of glory. Another way to express our purpose is that we are involved in pointing God's people to the Lord and His word.
