“But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.”  (2 Peter 3:18, NIV)

The last verse of the final chapter of Peter’s letters to the exiled Christians contains the admonition to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Christ.

An applicable definition of Grace is “unmerited divine assistance given humans for their regeneration or sanctification.”

To grow in grace means that things that once frustrated us no longer have the power to frustrate.  It means that the things that once distracted us no longer have the power to distract.  It means the things that once provoked us to react in an unseemly manner no longer provoke.  To grow in grace is to become more like our heavenly Father — with His assistance!

Remember, with God all things are possible.  (Matthew 19:26)  – Luther
