Man Full of Grace

“And Stephen, full of grace and power, was doing great wonders and signs among the people.”
(Acts 6:8) 

Sure enough, everything the Christian knows is grace from God on high. Consider what Scripture has to say about this amazing grace. Those who are full of grace are:

  1. Responsive to grace. “And when he wished to cross to Achaia, the brothers encouraged him and wrote to the disciples to welcome him. When he arrived, he greatly helped those who through grace had believed” (Acts 18:27).
  2. Built up by grace. “And now I commend you to God and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up and to give you the inheritance among all those who are sanctified” (Acts 20:32).
  3. Testify of grace. “But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God” (Acts 20:24).
  4. Dependent upon grace. “But we believe that we will be saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus, just as they will” (Acts 15:11).
  5. Holy through grace. “And with great power the apostles were giving their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all” (Acts 4:33).
  6. Continue in grace. “And after the meeting of the synagogue broke up, many Jews and devout converts to Judaism followed Paul and Barnabas, who, as they spoke with them, urged them to continue in the grace of God” (Acts 13:43).
  7. Evidenced by grace. “When he came and saw the grace of God, he was glad…” (Acts xi. 23).
