Good Morning all! Today the word ” Grace ” has been on my mind and i want to share a few things on what that word means..
What is God’s Grace?
Grace means God sending His only Son to die on the Cross for us so that we could be saved.
Grace, which comes from the Greek New Testament word charis, is God’s unmerited favor. It is kindness from God that we don’t deserve. There is nothing we have done, nor can ever do to earn this favor. It is a gift from God. God’s grace is truly amazing. Not only does it provide for our salvation, it enables us to live an abundant life in Jesus Christ:
Grace that is greater than all our sin. God’s Grace is Marvellous. God shows favor toward the unfavorable, acceptance to the unacceptable, kindness to the undeserving and blessings to the unworthy.
And here are a few Bible Verses for you to look up on your own!
“This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus” (Romans 3:22-24).
“In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace” (Ephesians 1:7).
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2:8-10).
“For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ” (John 1:17).
“For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ!” (Romans 5:17).
You are Chosen, Loved, and Cherished by God!
WITH LOVE, Mindy
