The Grace of God – Romans 5:1-2

Post  Waqar Daniel on Wed 18 Jul 2007, 8:53 pm

Grace is far more than a mealtime prayer or a popular name for girls. The word communicates the idea of blessing. As children of God, we’re the recipients of His abundant grace. Let’s examine how we experience this amazing benefit of His love.
We see God’s favor in our salvation. Ephesians 2:8 tells us, “For by grace you have been saved.” The blessing is undeserved and unearned. Nothing about your or me prompts God to save us. He acts purely out of His goodness. He sacrificed Jesus so we could be reconciled to Him and adopted into His family.

Grace is also the sphere in which we live the Christian life. Colossians 1:12-13 points out that salvation transferred us from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of light. Here, we live out our new identity as God’s child and glorify Him.

The beauty of grace becomes clear when we consider our former condition, hostile to the Lord and alienated from Him. Ephesians 2:1 says we were spiritually dead and lived according to our selfish interests. Now, through faith in Jesus, God has justified us and given us new life. According to Romans 8:1, He’s declared we have right standing before Him. All of our sins were placed upon Jesus, and His righteousness has been credited to our account permanently.

Picture yourself living in the favor of God. Accept this truth, and then give the Lord thanks.

Thanks, God's Grace is always misunderstood by people and they on sinning by saying that they are under Grace of God and not under Law.
