The Way of Grace
“The highway of the upright is to depart from evil:
he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul”
The way of grace is the way of righteousness. It is the path of all who follow their loving Shepherd. Psalm 23 declares that “he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness”. Those who follow Him know deep within their being that the “way of the Lord” leads us to “righteousness, peace and joy”. It is in the “keeping of His way” that we in fact “preserve our souls”.
Grace is ever given to hold us, keep us and sustain us in the “way of holiness”. The way of holiness is the only path to the seeing of Him and the knowing of Him (Hebrews 12:14). Grace is the power to walk, live and abide within the pavilion of His Kingdom. Grace to arise when we fall, Grace to endure temptations and Grace to know the joy of His salvation within our lives.
“through whom we have received grace and apostleship
to bring about the obedience of faith
among all the Gentiles for His name’s sake,”
Romans 1:5 (NASB)
The Way of Grace ever causes us to depart from evil and to cling to that which is good and right. It is by “grace” where we are saved through the wonder of faith. It is a grace which saves us from our sins and gives us the power to live godly in Christ Jesus.
“For by grace are ye saved through faith…”
