2 Peter 1:2
“Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.”
What does it mean to have the grace multiplied?
Most people have stopped growing or have not even grown up since they gave their lives to Christ. They struggle in their relationship with God, marriage, finances, etc. Such people wonder how they could enjoy the grace of God.
The grace of God is what makes Christian life easy and enjoyable. It is the only substance that gave us liberty from sin, freedom from oppression and victory over all temptations. Hence, the need for its multiplication.
How then can God’s grace be multiplied in our life?
God’s grace can be multiplied in our life as we learn at His feet through constant fellowshipping and devotion. Paul the Apostle said, “All I want is to know Christ and to experience the power of his resurrection, to share in his sufferings and become like him in his death, (in Philippians 3: 10 Good News Translation). Knowing Him is an active multiplier of His attributes in your life. As we know Christ, we experience Christ.
“They that know their God shall be strong and do exploits” (Daniel 11:32). Through knowledge, we receive strength made available by grace to do exploits. We also have peace because there is victory. There is no peace when you are defeated in all the battles of life.
One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in his temple (Psalm 27:4)
As we journey in this new week, I challenge you to spend time with God. Study the word of God as someone who desires to know Him. Search the scripture, pray for God’s revelation and listen to messages that can illuminate your heart.
It is not enough to desire to know God more; it is important to actively do it. As you can never know God enough, you can never have grace and peace to the point that you do not need more. They keep multiplying. Hallelujah!
