How do you know you’re a product of God’s grace? Well, before we answer this question let’s explore a few definitions:

Grace is – God’s unmerited favor.

Grace is – God’s sufficiency or God’s fulness in the life of the believer

Grace is – Costly

Grace is – exhibited clearly in the atonement of Christ on the cross

Grace is – Portrayed in the lives of believers

Paul said in 1 Corinthians 15:9-10, “For I am the least of the apostles and do not even deserve to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. By the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain.” Here we find Paul recognizing that he would not be where he was had it not been for God’s grace. He recalled the person he used to be, but he obviously chose not to allow his past to discredit the dispensation of God’s grace working in and through his restorative life.

Brothers and sisters, Satan wants you to look at your sin and he wants you to believe you’re a product of sin. Whereas, God wants you to look at His Son and know that you’re a product of grace. Paul didn’t allow his prior sins stop him from responding to God’s call on his life.

With that said, let’s now answer the question. In a poem entitled, A Product of Grace, Andy Wood penned these words:

I am a product of grace.

No measure of performance could ever achieve in a lifetime what the grace of God performed in an instant.

No failure to perform could erase what the Spirit of God has completed for all of eternity.

I am a product of grace.

No nod of any human’s approval could compare with the fulfillment, the joy, the wonder of knowing my Heavenly Father has turned His face toward me.

No amount of mortal rejection can change the fact that my Lord God has made me accepted in the Beloved.

I am a product of grace.

No sin of the past, no matter how grave, can resist the transforming power of a Risen Lord.

No future failure can change the fact that I am an heir of God, a joint heir with Jesus Christ.

I am a product of grace.

No situation, no pain, no frustration can rob me of my hope.

No force without or within can deny or change the fact that I am a new creation in Christ –
that every old thing is passed away and everything has become new.

I am a product of grace.

And grace never sleeps. It never gets tired or weak, old or crippled. It’s as new as the sunrise, and as powerful today as it was the first Easter.

Grace is my testimony and I its trophy. There is never a time when grace is not
covering my sin or revealing me as God’s work of art.

I am a product of grace.

And I have a story to tell. Once I was lost, but now I’m found.

Marvelous!

Once I was blind, but now I see.

Infinite!

Once I was afraid, now I am at peace!

Matchless!

I am what I am.

That’s grace. But I am not yet what I will be. That, too, is grace.

Oh, how amazing!

Grace.

Yes, we are a product of grace and it calls for an appropriate response from each one of us.
