By Grace

We know it is by grace we are saved and not of ourselves.  Our good works don't save us either.  We need and should depend and rely on that same grace for every day  living the Christian life.  Grace is the power of God in us that is a gift from His love for us.   Grace is the power of God that dwells in us through the Spirit of God, Jesus.

We must give up our striving and trying harder.  As we rest in the finished work of Christ we see Grace in us.  We are doing things we cannot do.  Loving in ways we are unable to love.  Forgiving as we are forgiven.  It is God Himself living in  and through us.
