Continue In Grace

 

Now when the congregation had broken up, many of the Jews and devout proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas, who, speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of God” (Acts 13:43 NKJV). To continue is “to maintain without interruption a condition, course, or action.” I’ve seen this many times when the class or the teaching session ends, people stand around wanting to hear more or ask specific questions. Notice it was the Jews and the proselytes of the Jews who Paul and Barnabas were talking with. They knew the law, and were devout in trying to keep it. But Paul’s message of grace was a new revelation. It was the answer to their struggles. I imagine they were asking a lot a “but” questions to Paul. How do we keep people on the straight and narrow if we don’t have the law? How do we discipline people without the law? Are you sure we are no longer under law but under grace? Paul’s answer was simple. Just continue in grace. The longer you go in grace the more these questions fall by the wayside. Just continue to maintain the course of grace. Steady as you go. It’s forever.
