We hear the word grace but most times, we undermine the word. We treat is with so less of value.
No other words can best describe Grace, than the word “Unmerited“. Yes, that’s what grace is.
An unmerited love of God. This love can be seen in the book of John 3:16 ‘For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.
This same Scriptures, went ahead to tell us that ‘while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us'(Romans 5:8). Maybe you should repeat that verse and meditate on it. It means He died for you even when you do not know Him. He loves you, even in your unaware state. In life, we give award to people to in recognition of their good deeds. Its called a merit awards for their accomplishments in their various fields. However, Grace is not so. It is not a Merit Award. It is given to all of us irrespective of our tribe, race, color, behaviors etc. It is a free Gift to humanity.
Here is a List of what the bible says about Grace
1. Ephesians 2:8 For by Grace are ye saved through faith;not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.
what this simply means is that your salvation comes from God. It is God who has the power to save a man from the crushes of sin and death. If grace didn’t come to rescue you, you are no better than the person who hasn’t seen the light. So it was in God’s plan that at a particular time in your life, you will be saved. Not because of your works ,lest any man should boast. But it is God’s show of love to us.
2. Titus 2:11 For the Grace of God that brings salvation hath appeared unto all men.
This confirms what the scriptures says in Ephesians. That it is God’s grace that saves. And this grace has appeared unto all of us, not just a selected few.
3.Hebrews 4:16 let us boldly come to the throne of Grace that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Thus, there is a grace available for you in times of need. All you need is to meditate on God’s word, approach the throne and receive such grace. There is no one man, who has an exclusive right to the grace of God. But only few ask and few ask Boldly. Therefore ask, so that you can obtain mercy and find Grace for down times.
4. 1 Corinthians 15:10 But by the Grace of God I am what I am. if you study this verse deeply, there are so many points attached to it. The Apostle was saying that He is what he is today because of God’s grace. Although he labored and worked hard than the rest, it was still the grace working through him and in him.
I do not know what you’ve accomplished so far in your life, but I want you to take a step backward and pause and acknowledge God’s grace upon your life. You couldn’t have come this far if not by divine grace. It was this grace that kept you, it was this grace that led you and this same grace will take you home.
You are what You are because of the Grace of God.
Outside of God’s grace, humanity is lost
My Prayer for You
May the God of all flesh open the eyes of your understanding to make you see and acknowledge His Grace upon your life in every way, everything you do and every moment of your life.
