By Grace we have been Saved

By Grace we have been saved:

How many how read in the Bible, “By Grace we have been saved….”? I’m sure all of us have at one time or another…so why is it so hard to believe? I had gotten a book from the library a couple days ago called, “Grace” by Max Lucado. I loved it so much that I read it in 2 days!!! While reading it, I was utterly astounded about how much God gives us Grace  in abundance!!!

 So, what does Grace mean? Maybe there was a time that you can think of that you showed grace to someone...or vice versa, they showed Grace to you!

When us kids were little, and we'd get in trouble from arguing or some other things, we'd have a "Job Jar". You would stick your hand in the job jar and pick out a piece of paper. Sometimes the paper would say, "Clean the Stove top", and sometimes it would say some other things. There was 2 slips of paper in there that said, "Grace", which meant that you didn't have to do a job jar chore, because mom and dad decided to give you grace. I looked up in the Webster's 1828 Dictionary what "Grace" means...here is what I found...

  •  The application of Christ's righteousness to the sinner.
          Where sin abounded, grace did much more abound. Rom.5.
  • Favor; mercy; pardon. Privilege.

  1. Psalm 45:2
    You are fairer than the sons of men; Grace is poured upon Your lips; Therefore God has blessed You forever.
  2. Psalm 84:11
    For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD gives grace and glory; No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.

    Ephesians 2:8-9
    For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.

I just wanted to say that I have read and went through a lot of your blogs and I am proud to see someone able to spread the Lords words! and see you continuing it! many do noting and that does not help us to bare fruit nor does it help to be a blessing to God! So thank you so much for posting blogs and taking a stand for Jesus!!!!
