The grace of God

What is the grace of God?

The grace of god is a gift that we do not deserve, there is nothing we have done nor that we can do to earn this favor.

Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. 
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, 
For my power is made perfect in weakness.” 
Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my 
Weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 
2 Corinthians 12:8-9
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.
We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, 
Who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14
But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ 
Apportioned it.  Ephesians 4:7
Do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings. 
It is good for our hearts to be strengthened by grace, 
Not by eating ceremonial foods, which is of no benefit to 
Those who do so. Hebrews 13:9
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and
This is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God
Not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Here is a little inspirational poem about grace

I walked all day and all night,
My soul was restless
I was worried with worldly concerns
Troubled with the incertitude of the future

What was my soul to do?
My troubles were more than I can bear
I woke up to a reality that was hopeless
Sorrowing over my plight..

I remembered the promises of the Lord
I knew he was the same and tomorrow
I decided to lift up my hands in praise..
Every time the enemy whispered in my ear…I praised my creator
And blessed his name…I gave thanks for his promises… I humbled myself and accepted his grace
His power is made perfect in my weakness…and his name will be praised through eternity..

Who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God, 
The Father, through the sanctifying work of the Spirit, 
To be obedient to Jesus Christ and sprinkled with his blood:  
Grace and peace be yours in abundance.  Peter 1:2
Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, 
So that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our 
Time of need.  Hebrews 4:16
But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says:
“God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.  
James 4:6
For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation 
To all people.  Titus 2:11
For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not 
Under the law, but under grace. Roman 6:14

The grace of God comes from his love and this grace is one of his most wonderful gifts!  Praise the name of the lord for he is pure love!

  1. First, I would like to say how much I like the photo. Did you take it?
    Then, I would just say thanks for compiling these verses on Grace. It certainly is a beautiful thing. The Gospel would not be the Gospel without it. Without Grace and without Truth, both of which were complete in Christ Jesus, it is hard to say where the world would be today, assuming it would be at all.

    1. I agree with your thought, without Jesus coming on earth the grace of God will not have been complete. Because of him we got reunited with God and this gave us the Holy Spirit on earth. Most people do not understand what the Holy Spirit is, but the concept is not hard. It is the peace that we got because we were reunited with God, it is the grace of God, because of Jesus we were able to get this grace and peace.
      Thanks for the like. JesusTheTurthAndTheWay
