It seems like only yesterday that I was praying to God, asking for answers and forgiveness of a terrible mistake. Many find themselves praying to God due to abusage of their freedom of choice. Fortunately, the goal is not to condemn ourselves because when Jesus died on the cross he saved us through GRACE.
DOES GRACE WINS? YES, GRACE WINS EVERY TIME. We have to stop lying to ourselves about our failures, sins, and bad choices because God loves us in spite of our imperfections. Therefore, it’s important we live a life full of unmerited favor, forgiveness, and unconditional love. Our way to show gratitude to God is to let GRACE permeate every ounce of our existence.
The word “grace” in the New Testament comes from the Greek word charis, which means “favor, blessing, or kindness.” Its God choosing to bless us rather than curse us as our sin deserves. It is His benevolence to the undeserving.
GRACE PROTECTS US
I once heard that grace is God’s protection of his children, his umbrella. The function of an umbrella is protection from rain or sun. God’s grace provides protection from guilt, condemnation, trials and tribulations.
GRACE IS A GIFT
Grace is given to us by God for no reason. All of us are recipients of the grace of God regardless of how “good” or “bad” we are. Grace began in the Garden of Eden when God killed an animal to cover the sin of Adam and Eve (Genesis 3:21). As long as we are here on earth God will continue to gift us with grace.
SCRIPTURES THAT PROVES GRACE WINS
2 Corinthians 12:8-9 Three times I pleaded with the Lord about this, that it should leave me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
Hebrews 4:16 Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
I AM LIVING PROOF GRACE WINS EVERY TIME.
