Grace is unmerited favor from God. It means, we do not deserve to receive, but because of God’s unfailing love, we are abound with grace from Him. Everyone needs a Savior and saving grace comes only from Jesus Christ who is the only Savior. Why some people cannot accept Jesus? Why do they have to go to other gods who cannot do what Jesus has done to us and will be doing favor, once you accept Him. We are all sinners as God said, no one is free of sins and all fall short of His glory. We all missed the mark-the standards of being a godly persons, because of our sinful nature. God understands it, but it doesn’t mean that we should keep on sinning. We must strive hard to overcome it. We can only overcome it through the grace of God which we can received through the power of the Holy Spirit who will guide us upon accepting Jesus as our Lord and Savior.
As Paul said :
“But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me. We can use grace on a daily basis power to forgive sins and to overcome sins.(1Corinthians 15:10).
Grace is a power through the Holy Spirit when Jesus is in your life. Once you accepted Jesus as your Savior, the fullness of God’s grace is at work. Aside from the favor, it enables us power. It’s only through God’s grace that we can be transformed. Only God can changed people.
Ephesians 3:20 :Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us’
Grace can only be done through faith in Jesus Christ.
2 Peter3:18 18 But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Grace does not stop in salvation, but to continue to learn and know about God and the words of God. so that we can live in a supernatural way.
2 You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus, 2 and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also.
Therefore, we must share to others the grace that is given to us by being with Christ Jesus.
His forgiveness is in fullness. We must learn to forgive because God has forgiven us. At dahil tayo ay pinatawad na ng Dios, hindi ba marapat lang na patawarin din natin ang mga taong nagkasala sa atin?
With the grace of God that empowers us, we can now learn to say No to worldly desires, ungodly passions, learn to be humble and to forgive. Grace do not just saves us from sins, but empower us to forgive, too.
