Friends and neighbors have you ever stop to think about the Amazing Grace of God? The word grace is found 170 times in the Holy Bible and one of the meanings of the word grace according to Webster Dictionary is: “Appropriately, the free unmerited love and favor of God, the spring and source of all the benefits men receive from him.” In Ephesians 2:5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) and Ephesians 2:8-10 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
The grace of God that brings salvation appears to everyone. Titus 2:11-13 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
The grace of God is accessible to everyone. Romans 5:2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
