πŸ‘‘ What Grace Is

Never let the devil deceive you into supposing that God planned sin as β€œa gracious means to a glorious end,” for then salvation from sin would be simple justice, not grace. No, you cannot legitimately charge God with your sin. It is to the guilty, the undeserving, far and wide, that God offers β€œthe forgiveness of sins according to the riches of His grace” (Eph. 1:7).

There are two significant phrases in Eph. 2 which shed clear light upon the character, the nature, of grace. They are found in Verses 2 and 3, which speak of the unsaved as β€œchildren [Gr.,Β huiois, full-grown sons] of disobedience” and β€œchildren [Gr.,Β tekna, born ones] of wrath.”

Meditate for a moment on these phrases:Β β€œChildren of disobedience” andΒ β€œchildren of wrath.”It is against this dark, black background of deserved wrath, that we read further:

β€œBUT GOD, who is RICH IN MERCY, for His GREAT LOVE wherewith He loved us,

β€œEven when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us [given us life] together with Christ (BY GRACE ARE YE SAVED),

β€œAnd hath raised us up together and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

β€œThat in the ages to come He might show THE EXCEEDING RICHES OF HIS GRACE IN HIS KINDNESS TOWARD US THROUGH CHRIST JESUS” (Eph. 2:4-7).

Somehow it takes a load off one’s heart and mind to come to the end of his rope, as it were, and admit that he is a sinner, deserving God’s wrath. How sweet to the ears of such is the wonderful message of redemption by grace, through the finished work of Christ at Calvary. We were all the β€œchildren [full-grown sons] of disobedience”: and therefore β€œby nature the children [born ones] of wrath”: β€œBut God!” When hope seemed gone, He intervened and now offers salvation to all by grace, through faith.

β€œBelieve on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved” (ActsΒ 16:31). source

Verse for 12/14/2017

And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. — Luke 1:26-28
