"The Awesomeness of Mercy and Grace"

“The Awesomeness of Mercy and Grace”

But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love that He had for us, made us alive with the Messiah even though we were dead in trespasses.  You are saved by grace!             Ephesians 2:4-5

“BUT GOD,” two words that are INSPIRING.  They indicate a very STUPENDOUS transition that is taking place, a change of sorts, which changes DESPAIR to HOPE, and DEATH to LIFE.  I am NOT speaking of this TEMPORARY LIFE, but of ETERNAL LIFE.  These two words determines mankind’s destiny. We all are born with a SINFUL NATURE, one that is prone to be at enmity with God.  And as we grew up, we lived by the inclinations of our flesh, which by nature made us children under wrath.  “BUT GOD” had other plans.

Because of God’s RICH MERCY, which is the act of NOT giving us what we deserve, and His GREAT LOVE that He has for mankind, the Crown of His Creation, He sent His One and Only Son to die in our place, and for those who ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, He has made us ALIVE with Jesus Christ, through His RESURRECTION, even though we were yet DEAD in our sins. 

Because of God’s AMAZING GRACE, getting what we don’t deserve, the REDEMPTION of our wretched souls. Those who will ACCEPT God’s gift of SALVATION, will be made ALIVE with Jesus Christ, even though we were yet DEAD in our sins.  He has provided for the TRUE BELIEVER, ETERNAL LIFE in Heaven, with ALL its BLESSINGS and the ability to ESCAPE an ETERNITY in Hell, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE.

So, if you have NOT given your HEART and SOUL to God, why not do it NOW?  You MUST be WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  BELIEVE with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and become a recipient of His MERCY and GRACE.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
