"The Benefits of God's Grace"

“The Benefits of God’s Grace”

“Now I commit you to God and to the Word of His Grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.”      Acts 20:32

GRACE:  Receiving blessings we DON’T deserve.

Mankind does NOT deserve God’s gift of SALVATION, on their OWN merits, because mankind is born with a SINFUL NATURE, and is UNRIGHTEOUS before the ALMIGHTY, RIGHTEOUS GOD of the Universe.  The ONLY WAY, that mankind can receive God’s AMAZING GRACE, is through His REDEEMING WORK, which was carried out, through the LORD JESUS CHRIST, God’s Only Son, who gave His life to SAVE the souls of mankind from an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE.

Through the REDEEMING WORK of the Lord Jesus Christ, mankind can RECEIVE what they don’t DESERVE, by ACCEPTING what Jesus has done for them.  And by TURNING AWAY FROM their sinful lifestyle, and TURNING TO God, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. And CONFESSING their sins to Him, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS. BELIEVEING, with ALL their HEART, that Jesus died for them, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for them, before God.  Then they can become a RECIPIENT of GOD’S AMAZING GRACE. 

The Apostle Paul brings out some of the BENEFITS of GOD’S GRACE.   First, we can be BUILT UP in our FAITH, ENCOURAGED, and given an INHERITANCE along with others who have been SAVED and SANCTIFIED (set apart).  That INHERITANCE is an ETERNITY in HEAVEN with ALL its BLESSINGS, and being able to ESCAPE an ETERNITY in HELL. 

Receiving God’s GRACE, will DELIVER you from the DOMAIN of DARKNESS and into the GLORIOUS LIGHT of His Son, through which we have REDEMPTION, the FORGIVENESS of sins, through Him. (Col. 1:12-14) Those who have RECEIVED GOD’S GRACE, will be enlightened and able to KNOW the HOPE of HIS CALLING, the GLORIOUS RICHES of His INHERITANCE and the IMMEASURABLE GREATNESS of HIS POWER to those who BELIEVE, according to His VAST STRENGTH.  (Ephes. 1:18-19) These are the BENEFITS of GOD’S GRACE.

If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, why not do so NOW?  And become a RECIPIENT of His AMAZING GRACE, and spend your ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS, instead of an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS. Do it NOW by FOLLOWING the contents in this message.  Because, Jesus is waiting and coming SOON!!!
