4- The Grace Of God In Us Are Things Unseen.

We attain visits of grace, which fill us with God's love. We do not see it but we feel it. Grace working in us, is without doubt is the work of the unseen things.

Saint John the evangelist said “Grace and truth came through Jesus.” (John 1: 17), as we have discussed this issue before here on st-takla.org in other sections. What is this grace working in us? And the grace that Saint John enjoyed. He said “But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain.” (1

Cor. 15: 10), and he also says about us “For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.” (Rom. 6:14), and urges Timothy to “Be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.” (2 Tim. 2: 1).

We do not see this grace with our physical eye, it is amongst the unseen matters, but we feel its presence in our lives. The grace of God in us is beyond our senses as we accept this grace from God. The church grants grace every time it repeats Saint Paul’s words “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all.” (2 Cor. 13:14).

Here we move to another point, the element of blessings
