What is Grace?

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. Read Mark 2:1-12, Did the man DESERVE God’s power to be healed because of his faith, or did God heal him because of his faith in God’s gracious power?

When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.”

Does our faith EVOKE God’s blessings, or make demands on Him?

The Holy Spirit is called the Spirit of Grace, Hebrews 10:29.

The apostle Paul instructs us to be strong in God’s grace, 2nd Tim. 2:1.

Paul believed that Christians stand in the grace of God, Romans 5:2.

The grace of God causes salvation to appear to all of us, Titus 2:11.

By grace you have been saved through faith and that not of yourselves, it is

the gift of God. Ephesians 2:8-9

…as God has dealt to each person a measure of  faith. Romans 12:3

What does God’s grace teach us?  See Titus 2:11-14.  Can we see God’s grace?  See Acts 11:23.  When we do see God’s grace, do we call it grace, or ignore the giver of all good and perfect gifts, James 1:17.  If we use the word “grace’, as the Bible uses it, we will grow strong in His grace and stand in it firmly. This is good news, it is God’s Riches At Christ’s Expense!  Do you have those Riches?
