Communion with God (13)

Fellowship with Christ pre-eminently that of grace (John 1:14-17, I Cor.16:23).

Meaning:

  •  His beauty and character (Psalm 45:2, 27:4, 90:17)-Christ full of grace.
  •  Free favour and acceptance (Eph.2:8-9)-the grace that saves.
  •  Power of grace- the fruit of the Spirit, renewing our natures, enabling unto good, and preventing from evil (Col. 3:16, Acts 4:33)-the grace that sanctifies.

These two latter, as relating unto Christ in respect of us who receive them, I call purchased grace (Owen).

 Graceful beauty.
