For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
After all these years of being a Christian, God’s grace still amazes me.
His grace that is eternal, extravagant, illogical, outrageous, immeasurable, and indescribable. His grace means that we can experience not only salvation, but security, strength, sustenance, and satisfaction in life.
And what’s amazing is that grace is a gift. But more than a gift, it is a free gift!
And more than a free gift, it is a gift that is given to those of us who are totally and completely unworthy of this amazing gift.
Grace is the unmerited, unmitigated, kindness and favor of God that is given to those who do not deserve it. That’s why God’s grace is so amazing!
So let me ask you: Have you accepted God’s grace?
His grace is the only thing that will set you free from your sin, from your shame, from your brokenness, and from your bitterness. His grace will make you a brand new person!
Grace is God’s lifeline to the lost. It is infinite. And it is immeasurable.
GRACE IS THE UNMERITED, UNMITIGATED, KINDNESS AND FAVOR OF GOD THAT IS GIVEN TO THOSE WHO DO NOT DESERVE IT.
