What is Grace? Grace is undeserved love and Mercy. Grace is a gift from God that you don’t have to work for. In fact you could never work hard enough to obtain it. Grace is a Gift Received At Christ’s Expense. “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.” ( Ephesians 2:8,9). A gift is free, you don’t have to work for a gift. “And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.”(Romans 11:6). Did you know that in Psalms 136 that it says 26 times that the mercy of the Lord endures forever? People in heaven are there right now by God’s grace, love, and mercy, and not by any good works that they have done. When Jesus died on the cross he gave us the free gift of eternal life, by simply believing and receiving him as your Saviour by asking him to come into your heart, and he proved it by raising from the dead. True Christian faith teaches God reaching out to man, not man reaching out to God, by his own good works. Every false religion teaches a works doctrine, but true Christianity teaches a grace doctrine meaning that reaching God and Heaven is a free gift from God and Jesus Christ, and all you have to do is reach out by faith and receive it. “Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.” (John 6:28,29). When you truly understand this truth you will be truly set free. “and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32). Salvation = Grace + Faith + Nothing.
Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
