WHAT IS GRACE?

Grace is the story of God’s good news…

REALIZE THAT GOD LOVES YOU.

John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

The Bible teaches that regardless of your background, age, race or any other factor, God loves you.  He desires a genuine, personal relationship with you.

REALIZE THAT ALL MEN ARE SINNERS.

The Bible says in Romans 3:23, For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;  No one is sinless.  We have all broken God’s commandments.  This is called sin or iniquity, and it separates us from having a relationship with God.

REALIZE THAT OUR SIN MUST BE PAID FOR.

Romans 6:23 contrasts eternal life with eternal death.  It says, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

GOOD NEWS: JESUS CHRIST PAID FOR YOUR SIN.

Romans 5:8 tells us that “…God commendeth (proved or demonstrated) his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”  God’s justice demands that sin be paid for, but in His mercy, the Lord Jesus Christ took our penalty for us.

YOU CAN PRAY & RECEIVE CHRIST AS YOUR PERSONAL SAVIOUR.

Eternal life is not earned or achieved by our own merit.  All that was necessary to gain access to Heaven was completed in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  The gift of eternal life was purchased and is now offered to all freely.  All of man’s attempts to gain eternal life fall short.

Romans 10:9-10 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

Many say that they “believe in God,” but there is a difference between head knowledge and heart knowledge.  The Bible word “believe” means “to trust in” or “depend upon.”

Call upon the Lord in faith, trusting in His promise.  He will save you from an eternity separated from Himself, if you sincerely ask Him.

Romans 10:13 “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

This is God’s promise… “SHALL BE SAVED”  Its not a may be or a might be.  God’s promises always come to pass!

Don’t wait!  Accept God’s gift right NOW!  No one is assured of tomorrow.  Don’t put it off.
