"God's Grace and Mankind's Faith"

“God’s Grace and Mankind’s Faith”


Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him for righteousness.       Gen. 15:6

Therefore, it was credited to him for righteousness.  Now it was credited to him was not written for Abraham alone, but also for us.  It will be credited to us who believe in Him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead.  He was delivered up for our trespasses and raised for our justification.       Romans 4:22-25


God’s GRACE is giving to mankind BLESSINGS that they don’t deserve, such as, SALVATION and ETERNAL LIFE in Heaven.   In Genesis 15:6, we are told how God bestowed His GRACE on Abraham.  It says:  “Abraham BELIEVED God and it was CREDITED to him for RIGHTEOUSNESS.”  Abraham did NOT receive God’s AMAZING GRACE because he kept the LAW.  But ABRAHAM received it because of his FAITH.  And Abraham then had a RIGHT RELATIONSHIP with God, which provided RIGHTEOUSNESS for Abraham.


This same GRACE is offered to mankind, IF they will, like Abraham, BELIEVE and have the FAITH that GOD WILL DO what He promises He will do.  If we have that kind of FAITH, RIGHTEOUSNESS will be CREDITED to us, also. 


God’s GRACE was provided for ALL of mankind, if they will BELIEVE in Him, the One who RAISED Jesus from the dead, and ACCEPT the fact that Jesus was DELIVERED UP for our sins and RAISED for our JUSTIFICATION.  This is what GOD’S GRACE and MANKIND’S FAITH is all about.  Do you possess GOD’S AMAZING GRACE, and do you have the SAME kind of FAITH that Abraham had?


In order to receive RIGHTEOUSNESS and JUSTIFICATION, from God, you MUST BE WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  Then CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  And ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, by FAITH, and receive RIGHTEOUSNESS and JUSTIFICATION from Him, which will provide you with an ETERNAL HOME in Heaven, with ALL its BLESSINGS.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
