The Lord releases grace as a river of life pushing and shoving us to holiness and freedom from sin. Grace is the release of God’s power inside each believer causing, first desires to obey and serve Him, and secondly power to fulfill His will. “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me” [2 Cor 12:9 (KJV)].
Before salvation, “sin has reigned unto death,” but in Christ, “even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.” [Romans 5:21 (KJV)]
“… it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.” [Phil 2:13 (NKJV)]
“We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him.” 1 John 5:18 (NKJV)
God’s hand is upon His true children and they are radically changed from His power of new birth. The sincere religious people who attend church meetings or just live their lives, falsely believing they have a relationship with God, are exposed by the fact they still live in sin, instead of experiencing God’s heavy hand of Fatherhood and the resulting blessing of the power of right living!
