    To be strong in the Grace that is in Christ Jesus means to develop or strengthen those benefits, qualities or capabilities that comes with been inside the Grace such as the presence and support of the Holy Spirit, the Bible sometimes puts it as GROW IN GRACE. Analytically Grace is like an Open door to a store house of Good things,every believer is expected to take advantage of this, to go in to this store house and open more doors via the permanent grace know as JESUS ,the bible says that JESUS is the GRACE of GOD ,therefore to be strong means that we should grow in the knowledge, righteousness, power,glory etc that is available in Christ Jesus.The summary is that we should do those things that promote grace such as living a more prayerful life,more goodly life e.t.c the bible says SHOULD WE CONTINUE IN SIN THAT GRACE MAY ABOUND,NAY.
