God’s grace is the most important teacher we could ever have. His unmerited, undeserved favor instructs us in the things of God and teaches us how to be like Jesus Christ, Himself. However, grace only does this for those who have made the decision to make Jesus their Lord and Savior. Living godly lives involves depending not on ourselves, but on God and His wisdom, love, and goodness. When we decide to trust God in every area, we receive the humility and godly maturity to acknowledge that He is responsible for everything good that happens to us. The believer cannot truthfully say he is living godly until he humbly admits that he needs God, and accepts His grace. Letting grace teach us how to live a God-first lifestyle keeps us humble and gives us everything we need to thrive.
