1 Corinthians 15:10 says, “By the grace of God I am what I am.” It goes on to say that His grace IN me is not void, but I toiled (labored) more than all – not I however but the grace of God with me. In the Greek that last part says, “However not I, but God’s grace, THE GRACE JOINED WITH (SYN) ME!”
Co-grace! I am defined (or I am what I am) by His grace IN me. All that I do in life is not by my own being but by co-grace. His grace IN and THROUGH me. Grace is not an impersonal verb — it is not just an action or power working in me. Grace is a person – Grace is Jesus.
Co-grace is a co-union, an intimate oneness with the Spirit of Grace. It is an awareness of Him IN me, AS me, and THROUGH me. A son abides in the House forever — our union, our co-grace is forever. I am who I am by His grace – by His co-grace IN me. And I am not who I am not by that same co-grace.
I am not a slave under the law, under its authority. I am a son under grace’s authority. As a son, I abide IN and under grace. I live and move and have my being in and under grace.
I hear under grace, hearing from above – hearing my Daddy’s language of grace. I co-speak, speaking His expression of grace. I do not hear or speak under sin, law, or death. My language is righteousness, liberty, and joy.
My language now co-echoes His — it is FINISHED!
