Great Grace = Practitioners & Partners With God
Acts 4:33 And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all.
The grace of God is the single greatest source and resource in the life of a believer. Grace is God’s favor, ability, operational power, and everything He makes available to you and me. Grace came through Jesus Christ. John 1:16 And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. 17 For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
Looking at our text: Is “Great grace” a different kind or higher level of grace? No. The word “great” here does not describe a different of Grace, anymore than there is different kind of Jesus.
Great grace describes the engagement and practice that the Apostles had with the grace of God. They were fully submitted to Christ and fully immersed in living in grace. That’s what grace “great.” Not greater grace, but great engagement with grace by believers in the early church. Grace is not something we summon like a new idea, Grace is our lifestyle. Grace is our regular practice of life.
