By Grace You Are Saved!

Ephesians 2:8   For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God:

What is Grace? Grace is that which affords joy, pleasure, delight, sweetness, charm, loveliness:  it is good will, loving-kindness, God’s favor.

It is the merciful kindness by which God, exerting his holy influence upon souls, turns them to Christ, keeps, strengthens, increases them in Christian faith, knowledge, affection, and kindles them to the exercise of the Christian virtues.

There is nothing in this meaning that says it is unmerited favor- or undeserved favor- quite the contrary. Grace is a gift- you cannot earn grace- it is a free will love offering from almighty God himself- through his son Jesus Christ!!

No where can I find in the scriptures where it says that God thinks we don’t deserve this grace- Does anyone think that when you give a gift to someone that they do not deserve it. A gift is simply that  a gift: something voluntarily transferred by one person to another without compensation. If we know how to give good gifts to our children how much more will God give good gifts to those that ask.

Let God’s grace work in your life today! If you have any questions on this subject please email me at fgicrsm@sbcglobal.net

  1. That is awesome to know that God doesn’t think of us as undeserving. I have never given a gift to someone in love, but told them they did not deserve it as I gave it to them; I do not believe that this is how God gives gifts either. That is a wonderful revelation of our Savior’s love and favor toward us, thank you for posting this.
