Let me start with the definition of the word GRACE – “is getting what we don’t deserve.” Talking about grace, we should also mention MERCY – “is not getting what we do deserve.” If not for the GRACE and MERCY of God, we all deserved condemnation, but for the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ on the cross. Watch this, you and I have been sentenced to life eternal with Jesus Christ. You have been acquitted and no longer guilty of sin and condemnation.
The Bible says, “ Christ arrives right on time to make this happen. He didn’t, and doesn’t, wait for us to get ready. He presented Himself for this sacrificial death when we were far too weak and rebellious to do anything to get ourselves ready. And even if we hadn’t been so weak, we wouldn’t have known what to do anyway. We can understand someone dying for a person worth dying for, and we can understand how someone good and noble could inspire us to selfless sacrifice. But God put His love on the line for us by offering His Son in sacrificial death while we were of no use whatever to Him.” Read Romans 5:8 (MSG).
Listen to what the Bible says, “For while the Law was given through Moses, GRACE (unearned, undeserved favor and spiritual blessing) and truth came through Jesus Christ.” Read John 1:17 (AMPC). Ladies and gentlemen, GRACE is a person, and that person is Jesus. Watch this, if there was no Jesus, there won’t have been GRACE, Selah. GRACE and MERCY are INFINITE, there is no end in sight to God’s lavish GRACE and MERCY.
“For out of His fullness [the superabundance of His grace and truth] we have all received grace upon grace [spiritual blessing upon spiritual blessing, favor upon favor, and gift heaped upon gift].” Read John 1:16 (AMP). God’s grace served us salvation through the sacrifice of His Son Jesus on the cross. Oh, what GRACE and MERCY!!!
GRACE is too good to be true, and His MERCY is infinite. It is the absolute and only means to salvation.
