Our Life is Grace

Hebrews 13:9
Do not be carried about with various and strange doctrines. For it is good that the heart be established by grace, not with foods which have not profited those who have been occupied with them.

So, to repeat, in a slightly different form, one of the lists this study started off with, consider:

We are saved by grace (Eph 2:8)

We are sanctified by grace (Acts 20:32)

We grow by grace (Heb 13:9; 2 Peter 3:18)

We provide Christian service by grace (Eph 4:7)

We minister by grace (1 Cor 15:10; 2 Tim 1:6-7)

This service and ministry is most apparent in the Greek terms employed. The same root provides us with grace (charis) and spiritual gifts (charisma). Paul and Peter both make use of this relationship in the writings to make it clear the believer is to exercise the grace provided by God.

Romans 12:6
6 Having then gifts [charisma] differing according to the grace [charis] that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith;

1 Peter 4:10
10 As each one has received a gift [charisma], minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace [charis] of God.
