Grace for Us:
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.Eph 2:8-9 (KJV)
The above scripture has much to say.Though many read it some cannot comprehend the meaning.
Grace, is Gods unwarranted love for Us.As John 3:16 says,For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son.
You notice where salvation is mentioned, it is always a gift.
It is a gift of God,(it means what it implies,that salvation is given to anyone who asks,believes and repents.)
Not of works.There is nothing We can do to earn salvation.We can’t buy it,it is not earned by merits,or by being good,belonging to a church,giving to the poor or any other deed.It is only given to the person when He asks the Lord.
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. Romans 10:9 (KJV)
This is pretty cut and dried.Man is saved when he believes and confesses Jesus.Don’t add anything to it,just take it for what it says.
Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
Romans 3:24 (KJV)
There is enough grace to go around.God the Father gives it to those that will ask.When You the gift of salvation, He will not take it from You.Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
James 1:17 (KJV)
Before One can receive the gift of salvation,He must realize that he is lost,and without a savior.
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Romans 3:23 (KJV)
But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. 23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.Romans 6:22-23 (KJV)
And finally: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. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. 13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved
Romans 10:9-13 (KJV)
If You are not saved by the grace of god,then call upon the name of the Lord Jesus to save You.
Just a note:Adding anything to the saving grace of the Father,nullifies the gift.Have You tried to add something to the Grace God gave You ?Please accept the gift of God freely,without trying to repay.
