When you understand God’s Grace you will receive freely what God has for you in the year 2016. You do not have to work for it. He is exceedingly rich in mercy and kindness towards us. He loves us. This love: unsought and undesired has been given freely to undeserving sinners. Nobody deserves God’s love, but He gives it freely. The mercy and kindness He displays to undeserving sinners can never be earned. Nobody deserves it. Mercy is not receiving what you deserve. Grace is receiving what you don’t deserve. God gives both freely.
If you believe in Jesus Christ today it is not something you attained by yourself. While you were dead in trespasses and sins, His Grace met you and caused you to believe. This removes all forms of boasting from the mouths of believers. Anyone in Christ has found themselves there by the grace of God. The condition of every human before Christ is: “dead in trespasses and sins” (Eph.2;1). Salvation is all about who God is, it is nothing about who we are.
Ephesians 2:4 – 10 But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), 6 and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7 that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast. 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
Receive freely from the hand of the Lord today. He is rich in kindness, mercy, grace and compassion. Let no one deny you of what God has given you freely. Claim what is yours. Jesus Christ purchased it for you on the Cross of Calvary. He loves you and He died for you. He wants you to live in the abundance of what He has already purchased for you.
