Salvation is God’s work, not ours

If salvation was based on our own efforts, there would be no hope for any one. Who or what can save a person from the consequence of sin? “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23).

God is Holy

Who can stand before God? No one is worthy enough to stand before God. He is Holy. The understanding of the Holiness of God totally demolishes any form of self-worth or human efforts as a means through which a person is saved. Grace stands in direct opposition to self – worth and human efforts of every form. How unworthy is the human race? Absolutely unworthy to stand before a God who is absolutely righteous and just.

The tremendous power of Grace

While sin produces death, grace brings life to condemned sinners, who only deserve God’s justice. The purposes of God stand, despite human sin. God chose to impute His righteousness to guilty sinners. He chose a peculiar people (John 13:18;15:19, Romans 11:7 ) to show love favour, love, mercy and compassion. His forgiveness is completely free. There is nothing anyone can do to increase or diminish God’s love.

Anyone who has faith the Lord Jesus Christ today has done so by grace. Salvation is a work of grace, which can never be earned (Rom.11:6). Grace is the eternal and unconditional free favour of God. It is revealed in spiritual and eternal blessings to the guilty and unworthy. There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ (Rom.8:1). Christ makes you blameless before God. Walk in your freedom today, Christ has set you free! (Rom.8:1).
