The Gift of Grace

The Gift of Grace

Grace is the unearned, unmerited and undeserved favour of God upon our lives. It is God still loving us in spite of our sins, weaknesses, faults and shortcomings.
This is God’s love for us demonstrated “But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners” (Romans 5:8 NLT)
It is the gospel (good news) of grace that brings people to God.
Acts 15:11
Titus 2:11

We are therefore new covenant believers living under grace when we believe that Christ died on our behalf taking away all our sins. (Matthew 26:28)
Following is a short summary of what the new covenant of grace is all about with scripture reference from the NLT Bible. (New Living Translation)

1. We are completely forgiven of all our sins (past, present and future) by the shed blood of Jesus Christ.
1.1. Romans 3:23-24
1.2. Ephesians 1:7
1.3. Colossians 2:13
1.4. Isaiah 44:22

2. Jesus Christ was punished for our sins. Therefore we will never be punished nor condemned or experience God’s anger
2.1. Romans 3:24-25
2.2. Romans 8:1
2.3. Romans 5:9-10
2.4. Isaiah 54:9-10

3. Now we are made righteous (to be in right standing) in God’s sight when we believe in Christ our faith is now in Christ.
3.1. Romans 4:24-25
3.2. Romans 3:30
3.3. Galatians 2:16
3.4. Romans 9:30-32
3.5. Romans 10:1-4

4. Christ has secured our eternal salvation by his one perfect sacrifice.
4.1. Hebrews 9:12, Hebrews 9:28
4.2. Hebrews 10:10, Hebrews 10:12, Hebrews 10:14
4.3. Hebrews 10:17-18

5. Under the new covenant of grace the Lord will no more remember your sin.
5.1. Hebrews 8:12-13
5.2. Romans 4:6-8
5.3. Isaiah 43:25

6. We cannot be saved or justified or forgiven by what we do, it’s only by Grace when we place our faith in Jesus Christ.
6.1. Galatians 2:16
6.2. Ephesians 2:8
6.3. Acts 13:38-39
6.4. Romans 3:27

It is therefore quite simple to be saved and receive the eternal blessings of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ: Romans 10:8-11 (NLT)
It is by grace and grace alone that we receive all blessings in every area of our lives.
1. Titus 3:5-7
2. Romans 4:13
3. Acts 20:32

I pray that there would be a spiritual renewal of your thoughts and attitudes as you receive this message of God’s grace through Christ.

With Love & Blessings
