We believe that we are all saved the same way, by the undeserved grace of the Lord Jesus.” (Acts of the Apostles 15:11 NLT)
The definition of grace in a Biblical way is; “the free and unmerited favor of God, as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the bestowal of blessings.” Aren’t you thankful for God’s grace?
As I was riding to work this morning I took a moment of time and looked at how gracious God is to me and I was overjoyed with tears because I knew I didn’t deserve anything God has given me!
Just the other day I was complaining about my job in an ungrateful way. What’s the old saying? “Overworked and underpaid.” It was this complaint about my job; it was that complaint about my job but at the end of the day If it wasn’t for this job that God placed me in I would be complaining about a way greater need; food!
Sometimes we need to slow down and just realize how good God is to us sinners! How gracious He is too put up with all our stuff. How gracious He is to love us regardless if we show Him love back! God’ grace is undeserved so thank Him for it.
G.R.A.C.E. = God’s Riches At Christ Expense!
And since it is through God’s kindness, then it is not by their good works. For in that case, God’s grace would not be what it really is—free and undeserved. (Romans 11:6 NLT)
