SOME WHO ARE IGNORANT OF THE “GOSPEL OF GOD’S GRACE” (Gal 1:11-12/Acts 20:24) DEROGATIVELY CALL IT “CHEAP GRACE” OR “EASY BELIEVISM”. WELL, IT MAY BE EASY OR CHEAP TO YOU, BUT IT CAUSED GOD HIS SON.
THE APOSTLE PAUL WAS RIGHT WHEN HE FEARED THAT PEOPLE’S MINDS ARE BEING CORRUPTED BY THE ENEMY BECAUSE OF THE SIMPLICITY THAT IS IN CHRIST. (2Cor 11:3) “But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.”
HERE ARE SOME GOSPEL TRUTHS THAT WILL HELP YOU UNDERSTAND GOD’S GRACE.
(Rom 11:6) And if by grace, then it is no longer of works; otherwise grace is no longer grace. But if it is of works, it is no longer grace; otherwise work is no longer work.
(Rom 4:4) Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt.
(Rom 4:5) But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness,
(Eph 2:8-9) “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.”
GRACE IS UNMERITED FAVOR FROM GOD; YOU CAN NOT WORK FOR IT, MERIT IT OR DESERVE IT.
IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!
