๐Ÿ‘‘ The Grace Of God

In the Bible, the grace of God is His loving favor toward fallen man. St. Paul has more to say about grace than any other Bible writer, opening every one of his epistles with the declaration: โ€œGrace be unto you and peace.โ€

Little wonder, for he himself was Godโ€™s greatest demonstration of salvation by grace. In I Tim. 1:13,14, he says:

โ€œ[I] was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious; but I obtained mercyโ€ฆ and THE GRACE OF OUR LORD WAS EXCEEDING ABUNDANTโ€ฆ.โ€

After years of service and suffering for Christ, he declared:

โ€œBut none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify THE GOSPEL [GOOD NEWS] OF THE GRACE OF GODโ€(Acts 20:24).

Salvation is wholly by Godโ€™s grace, not partly by manโ€™s works, for in Rom. 11:6 we read: โ€œโ€ฆif [it be] by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace.โ€

And in Rom. 4:4,5: โ€œโ€ฆto him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on Him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.โ€ Thus salvation is โ€œnot of worksโ€ but โ€œunto good worksโ€ (Eph. 2:8-10). Good works is the fruit, not the root.

โ€œAll have sinned,โ€ says Rom. 3:23 but, thank God, all may be โ€œjustified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesusโ€ (Rom. 3:24).

Thus it is Godโ€™s purpose โ€œthat in the ages to come He might show THE EXCEEDING RICHES OF HIS GRACE in His kindness toward us through Christ Jesusโ€ (Eph. 2:7). source
