The "Manifold" Grace of God

"As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another. As good stewards of the manifold grace of God" (1 Peter 4:10).

The Bible speaks of the "manifold" grace of God. What does that mean? It means we can experience God's grace in many ways.

For instance, there is singing grace. When Paul and Silas were in prison, God gave them grace to sing (see Acts 16:25). There is speaking grace. Colossians 4:6 says, "Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man." God will give you the ability to talk about your troubles with His grace.

God also gives us strengthening grace. Timothy was often sick with many infirmities. Paul told him to "be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus" (2 Timothy 2:1). When you spend time in the Word of God, you too can draw from the manifold grace of God.

Read about the other "manifold" ways that God has provided for His people: Nehemiah 9:19 and 27; Psalm 104:24; Luke 18:29-30; and Ephesians 3:8-12.
