Have you ever done something bad, but someone else let you off the hook? That is grace in action. The bible says that everyone has sinned:
“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” – Romans 3:23
We have all made mistakes in our lives, but God loved us so much, Jesus came so that we can be saved from it.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” – John 3:16
There is nothing we can do to earn God’s grace, no matter how much of a goody goody we are, we will never be good enough for God’s grace. The only thing we need to do to receive God’s grace is to accept it. The bible says that God’s grace is freely given as a gift to you:
“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” – Ephesians 2:8-9
Just like you don’t have to work for your birthday presents, you don’t need to work for the gift from God. All He wants in return is for you to cherish that gift, thank Him and love Him.
GRACE = God’s Riches At Christ’s Expense
God enabled us to receive His inheritance at the expense of His Son’s life.
