The words grace and peace are used together numerous times in the Bible. A lot of the New Testament writers began and ended their letters with the words “grace and peace to you”. Paul started the book of Romans with: “Grace and peace to you from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ”. Peter started his second book with: “Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.”
In Acts 4:33 we are told “With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and much grace was upon them all.” The apostles were able to perform great miracles of healing and deliverance because God’s grace was resting upon their lives.
How wonderful to know that when we are in right standing with God His grace rests upon us to do what we otherwise couldn’t accomplish.
