Grace Builds Us Up (Acts 20:32)

And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.

Acts 20:32 (KJV)

Grace will always build us up. While the law was about what we had to do in order to earn favor with God, grace is all about what Jesus has already done for us. Each day our practice therefore must be to remind ourselves, to confess, and to thank God that His unmerited favor has already been made available to us. As we remember our identity in Christ—that we have been made righteous in Him—we open ourselves to receiving the inheritance grace has already provided.
