27 Jul The Grace of God (Part 19): Glorifying Grace
One day, our life on this earth as we know it will end. But, God’s grace will continue even on the other side of the grave.
Glorifying grace is what awaits all who have been saved by grace, when one day their soul (which upon death dwells with Jesus until the day of resurrection) is reunited with their glorified body. They will live forever with Jesus and all His people from all the nations of the earth and generations of history in the eternal and perfect Kingdom of God, free from the presence and power of sin. Speaking of this glorifying grace that awaits us, Romans 8:30–32 says:
Those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified. What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?
In a very real sense, even though we take nothing with us into the Eternal Kingdom, God’s grace that gets us there will be awaiting us there as well. We will bring nothing, and we will lack nothing because the God of grace will provide for all of our needs forever.
What are you most looking forward to in God’s Eternal Kingdom?
