Grace is only for the undeserving

Grace is only for the undeserving

MANY DO NOT REALIZE THAT GRACE IS ONLY FOR THE UNDESERVING.
(Rom 4:4-5) “Now to him who works, the wages are NOT COUNTED AS GRACE but as debt. However, to the man who does not work but trusts GOD who JUSTIFIES the WICKED, his faith is credited as righteousness.”

BEAR IN MIND THAT SALVATION IS A GIFT FOR YOU TO RECEIVE BY FAITH AND NOT A REWARD FOR YOU TO EARN BY GOOD WORKS.
(Eph 2:8) “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.”

REMEMBER, WE ARE JUSTIFIED FREELY BY HIS GRACE THROUGH THE REDEMPTION THAT CAME BY CHRIST JESUS ALONE.
(Rom. 3:23-24) “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus”.

FORGIVENESS OF SIN IS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE RICHES OF GOD’S GRACE THAT HE LAVISHED ON US IN CHRIST JESUS.
(Ephesians 1:7) “In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.”

ETERNAL LIFE IS A GIFT OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS.
(Rom. 6:23) “The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!

The Lamb was slain from the foundation of the world

The Lamb was slain from the foundation of the world

MANY DO NOT REALIZE THAT GOD CREATED THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH FOR THE PURPOSE OF REDEMPTION. HE WAS NOT CAUGHT UNAWARE OF THE FALL OF MAN, IN FACT, HE CREATED EVERYTHING FOR PURPOSE OF REDEEMING BILLIONS OF HUMAN BEINGS THROUGH HIS GRACE GIVEN US IN CHRIST JESUS.
(2 Timothy 1:9) “Who has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time”

THE HOPE OF ETERNAL LIFE WAS PROMISED BY GOD BEFORE THE BEGINNING OF TIME.
(Titus 1:2) “A faith and knowledge resting on the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time”

CHRIST THE LAMB OF GOD WAS SLAIN FROM THE CREATION OF THE WORLD.
(Revelation 13:8) “All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the book of life belonging to the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world.”

IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!

Our righteousness under grace is a person

Our righteousness under grace is a person

MANY DO NOT REALIZE THAT IN CHRIST, OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS IS A PERSON AND HIS NAME IS JESUS CHRIST. NOT ONLY SO, HE IS ALSO OUR HOLINESS AND REDEMPTION. GLORY TO GOD!
(1Cor 1:30) “It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption.”

BEAR IN MIND THAT THE LAW WAS GIVEN, BUT GRACE AND TRUTH CAME IN PERSON.
(John 1:17) “For the law was given through Moses; Grace and Truth came through Jesus Christ.”

WHEN CHRIST CAME, HE MEDIATED A NEW COVENANT OF GRACE WITH THE FATHER. AND UNDER THIS COVENANT, HE DIED AS A RANSOM THAT SETS US FREE FROM ALL THE SINS WE HAVE COMMITTED.
(Hebrews 9:15) “For this reason Christ is the mediator of a New Covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance—now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant.”

REMEMBER, UNDER GRACE (NEW COVENANT), SIN CANNOT HAVE DOMINION OVER US!
(Romans 6:14-15) “For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace. WHAT THEN? SHALL WE SIN BECAUSE WE ARE NOT UNDER LAW BUT UNDER GRACE? CERTAINLY NOT!”

IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!

 

Christ obtained eternal redemption for us

Christ obtained eternal redemption for us

CHRIST REDEEMED US FROM THE CURSE OF THE LAW (Gal 3:13) AND MEDIATED A NEW COVENANT OF GRACE WITH THE FATHER AND PLACED US UNDER IT. (Hebrews 8:6) But now He (Christ) has obtained a more excellent ministry, by so much He is also the Mediator of a better covenant, which was built upon better promises.

UNDER GRACE (NEW COVENANT), SIN CAN NOT EXERCISE DOMINION OVER US (Rom 6:14-15) BECAUSE THE BLOOD OF JESUS OFFERED IN HEAVEN’S TABERNACLE ONCE FOR ALL HAD OBTAINED ETERNAL REDEMPTION FOR US. (Hebrews 9:11-12) When Christ came as high priest of the good things that are already here, he went through the greater and more perfect tabernacle that is not man-made, that is to say, not a part of this creation. He did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves; but he entered the Most Holy Place once for all by his own blood, having obtained eternal redemption.

THE CLEANSING POWER OF THE BLOOD IS ETERNAL!

IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!

Crucified, died and raised with Christ

Crucified, died and raised with Christ

GOD IN HIS WISDOM PROVIDED A “DEATH” FOR US ON THE CROSS SO THAT THE BODY OF SIN MIGHT BE DONE AWAY WITH. FOR THIS REASON, IN CHRIST, WE ARE NO LONGER SLAVES TO SIN. FOR WHEN WE WERE CRUCIFIED AND DIED WITH CHRIST, WE HAVE BEEN SET FREE FROM SIN. FOR ANYONE WHO HAS DIED HAS BEEN FREED FROM SIN!
(Rom 6:6-7) “For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin—because anyone who has died has been freed from sin.” (note: the word “Sin” in this verse is a noun and not verb)

ANOTHER IMPORTANT THING WE NEED TO REALIZE IS THE FACT THAT WHEN WE WERE CRUCIFIED AND DIED WITH CHRIST, WE WERE ALSO RAISED WITH HIM AND NOW POSITIONAL SEATED WITH HIM IN THE HEAVENLY REALM.
(Ephesians 2:6-7) And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.

IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!
