Grace is the power of God by which we live our Christian lives Gal. 3:3. According to 1 Peter 1:2-3, grace is multiplied to us through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord—specifically, the knowledge of His promises that pertain to us.
Spiritual disciplines are those disciplines that communicate grace when they help us to focus more singularly on who God has told us that He is and what He has promised us through his Word, the Bible. 1 Peter goes on to enumerate specific qualities that a believer should have to render the believer useful and fruitful in the true knowledge of the Lord Jesus. Peter mentions faith, moral excellence, knowledge, self control, perseverance, godliness, brotherly kindness, and love. The downside of not having these qualities, according to Peter in verse nine is that the person becomes blind or short-sighted having forgot his or her purification for his or her former sins.
