What Is Grace?
Rom. 3:23 People are made right with God by his grace, which is a free gift. They are made right with God by being made free from sin through Jesus Christ. God gave Jesus as a way to forgive sin through faith. And all of this is because of the blood of Jesus’ death.
Eph. 2:5 We were spiritually dead because of the things we did wrong against God. But God gave us new life with Christ.
God’s Riches at Christ’s Expense
Insurance companies talk about new for old insurance cover. I have to tell you that God thought of that concept a very long time ago. God offers us a new life for a soiled life. It does not depend, on the quality of the used life. This is an unconditional offer, the worse the life the better is this offer, anyone can apply.
There are no special conditions; God will accept any offer made in good faith. I suppose there is one condition. It’s strictly a no refund deal. All correspondence will be entered into, but he will not give us back our old soiled life.
Grace is the free gift of new life, because of the blood, of Jesus death. It is free for us, but was expensive for Jesus. It costs us what we don’t need – our sin and death. It cost Jesus everything he had.
What Is Grace?
“And all of this is because of the blood of Jesus’ death.”
It’s so good – so simple – and so true.
As we receive the body and the blood of Jesus by faith, we receive this new life.
Jesus – in the breaking of the bread and the drinking of the wine we remember your death until you come again. Amen.
