One of the most important concepts in the Bible is the unfolding story of God’s grace. This week we are looking at several things about the grace of God. To live a successful Christian life, we need to both understand and experience God’s grace.
What is God’s grace? Grace is the gift of God’s undeserved, unearned blessing, acceptance, kindness, and love. Grace makes us strong and able to live for God and fulfill His will.
Grace is counter-intuitive to our natural, sinful nature. Actually, our prideful nature wants to achieve status, recognition, even salvation by our own merits rather than through the gift of God’s grace.
There is no way to achieve, qualify for, or earn the many benefits and blessings of God. The only way to access them is through the grace of God His grace comes to us when we put our faith in Jesus Christ. John 1:14-16 (NIV), “The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth… From the fullness of His grace we have all received one blessing after another.”
When we receive God’s grace marriages, families, businesses, finances, health, and all things change! God’s grace transforms us.
Open your heart to God’s grace today!
