God's GraceI have listened to more than a few biblical teachers preach, and all of them use all the correct words like salvation, repentance, forgiveness, sanctification, and the like. I would like to remind everyone of the beginning of ALL of the words you hear preached every Sunday and other days as well and in every Bible study and any time two or more are gathered in Christ’s name; where it all started for humanity. The word is GRACE.

It is only by God’s unfathomable Grace that we are saved. It is only by Grace that our sins are forgiven. It is the only way that we can find everlasting life. It is the only way that we have God’s Word and that we know what we have to do to be saved.  It is only by sending His only Son to the cross, to die by the spilling of the Son’s blood, it is only by this final sacrifice to absolve the sins of mankind, it is by His Grace and His Grace ALONE that all of the events were put into place allowing our sanctification to Him so that our sins are forgiven and our relationship with Him can continue righteously. (Ephesians 2:8-9)  Additionally, I say to all of you, believers and non-believers alike, it is only by incredible Grace that we were given the choice to either accept Christ and believe in God’s Word, or to reject Him, completely.  Imagine having a child who completely rejected you.  How much Grace do you think you would show that child?  God’s Grace extends endlessly, even to those who have rejected Him.  There is ALWAYS an opportunity to go back and accept Him.

  1. Very well said Joe! We are not saved by anything we do so that none may boast, but only by the Grace we are freely given.

I look forward to reading your comments.
