Amazing Grace

08 Sep

“In the presence of this gracious gift of faith [Eph. 2:8-9], God justifies us “by his grace” (Rom. 3:24; Tit. 3:7) and forgives our trespasses “according to the riches of his grace” (Eph. 1:7) and saves us “through the grace of the Lord Jesus” (Acts 15:11) and “makes all grace abound” to us for “every good work” (2 Cor. 9:8) and makes his grace sufficient for all our affliction (2 Cor. 12:9) and enables us “by the grace of God” to work harder than we imagined we could (1 Cor. 15:10) and grants “grace to help in time of need” (Heb. 4:16) and gives us “eternal comfort and good hope through grace” (2 Thess. 2:16), so that in the end “the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Thess. 1:12).”

It was and is all grace — never ever let that slip off your heart and mind.
