Grace indeed, is the greatest word in the greatest book, the Bible. If not for God’s grace, we would know nothing of His love for us personally, nor would we ever have even heard about the blood of Jesus. Without God’s grace, there would be no Jesus, no New Testament and no hope of salvation. Our world would be a horrific place in which to live without the grace of God.
Here are five facts God declares about His grace:
The Holy Spirit is called the Spirit of Grace , Hebrews 10:29. Therefore it is gracious that He even would want to live with us.
The apostle Paul instructs us to be strong in God’s grace, 2nd Timothy 2:1. Therefore we an emulate his grace.
Paul believed that Christians stand in the grace of God, Romans 5:2. Therefore we survive in His presence by grace.
The grace of God causes salvation to appear to all of us, Titus 2:11. Therefore we have access to a powerful and positive hope.
By grace you have been saved through faith and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God.
Ephesians 2:8-9. Therefore we can not claim or dare to even think, that we saved ourself, by ourself.
…as God has dealt to each person a measure of faith.
Romans 12:5. Even our faith is given to us by grace!
