Living in God’s Amazing Grace

August 2, 2020

Robert Louis Stephenson said - "There's nothing but God's grace.  We walk on it.  We breathe it.  We live it, and we die by it.  It makes the nails and axles of the universe." 

 

Everything is by God's grace.  We wouldn't even have our own lives if it wasn't for God's grace.

 

So, we might say - "This sounds like a good deal.  I want to be saved, forgiven, sustained, healed, liberated, given talents, used, kept saved, transformed and matured.  We want to receive God’s grace in our lives to the fullest extent possible.

 

Then the question is - how do we get it?   How do we receive the grace of God?"

The Bible says it in three simple words:  by trusting Christ. 

 

John in his gospel says it this way - "The law was given through Moses but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ."  (John 1:17)
