"The Purpose of Grace"

“The Purpose of Grace”

God’s law was given so that all people could see how sinful they were.  But as people sinned more and more, God’s wonderful grace became more abundant.  So just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God’s wonderful grace rules instead, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.    Romans 5:20-21

Just what is GRACE:  GRACE is receiving what we don’t deserve.   Ever since Adam and Eve, mankind has had an appetite for sin, and that appetite has GROWN. Throughout the ages, mankind’s appetite for sin has not only become more and more abundant, but it seems to get more and more DEPRAVED, WICKED and PERVERTED.  It seems like MANKIND has the desire in them to BREAK the LAW, at any cost.  God gave Moses the TEN COMMANDMENTS for MANKIND to LIVE by, but I think that mankind is out to see how MANY of those laws they can BREAK.  They were given to MOSES to show the people just HOW SINFUL they were. 

Today, I would venture to say, a lot of people don’t even KNOW what the TEN COMMANDMENTS are, or what its PURPOSE is for.  But regardless the BEST PART is that, no matter HOW MUCH, a person SINS, GOD’S GRACE BOUNDS MUCH MORE!  Sin RULES over people and it brings a SPIRITUAL DEATH, meaning, if they continue to SIN, it will bring them an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE, after they are there.  They will be SEPARATED from GOD and ALL that is GOOD. This is the RESULT of LIVING a SINFUL LIFESTYLE.  Is this your DESTINY?

But God’s WONDERFUL, AMAZING GRACE, which RULES in the HEARTS of the TRUE BELIEVERS, brings SPIRITUAL LIFE, which is what we really DON’T DESERVE, but because of GOD’S GRACE, we can have an ETERNAL LIFE in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS, because of our RIGHT RELATIONSHIP, with God, made possible through His ONLY SON, the LORD JESUS CHRIST, who gave HIS LIFE, for mankind, those who will ACCEPT GOD’S GRACE and SALVATION.  The PURPOSE of GRACE is to REIGN in the HEARTS of MANKIND and to BRING them ETERNAL LIFE in HEAVEN.  Is this your DESTINY?

If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then your DESTINY is an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE after you are there.  However, you can ESCAPE that DESTINY, by coming to God, and WILLINGLY TURNING AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURNING TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  Then CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  And BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  You MUST ACCEPT His Gift of SALVATION, and RECEIVE the PURPOSE of His AMAZING GRACE, an ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!
