Amazing Grace!

Amazing Grace!

God’s grace comes to us not only in the free gift of salvation, but also in the development of the Christian life. We need to put forth our very best efforts to grow and serve God but we can only do that through the grace of God that provides the spiritual resources to live a godly life. But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.” (1 Corinthians 15:10 KJV) Without the grace of God we would not be saved and we would not be able to serve Him and bear fruit. The Bible says: “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.” (John 15:5 KJV) God provided salvation through Jesus and offers grace to all sinners. The Bible says: Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 5:20-21 KJV) The supply of grace is far greater than all human ability to sin. In God’s plan, grace will rule the world. God’s grace to Paul is the same grace God gives us. Paul said: “And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry; Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 1:12-14 KJV) Yes, the grace that saved Paul can save us all. No person is too evil to be saved through God’s grace. Oh how we should be so grateful for God’s grace that is too wonderful for words. Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.” (2 Corinthians 9:15 KJV) God’s grace is given to us to serve others and to build up the church. The Bible says: As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.” (1 Peter 4:10 KJV) His grace is indescribable in words but may others see His indescribable grace in the way we live. God has given us the greatest treasure even though we didn’t deserve it. It is an amazing grace!
