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.
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)
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
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
