heaven-light-from-hd-410150Only as we recognize that grace is essentially for the graceless do we gather its essential sweetness. In the Old Testament, its synonyms in the Hebrew signify favor and loving kindness. Thus the word binds together both Testaments, signifying that God, because He is Love, is seeking sinners to bless and change them, and to fill their lives with fruitfulness, innocence and joy.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son…(He) did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. John 3:16-17

That’s grace.

This Man receives sinners. Luke 15:2

That’s grace.

Every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men. Matthew 12:31

That’s grace.

The one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out. John 6:37.

That’s grace.

Love is grace. Mercy is grace. Forgiveness is grace. All gifts are grace. Joy is grace. Indeed you cannot think of any good thing that is not related to grace in one way or another. There could have been no grace whatsoever for us but for the fact that God the Son volunteered to take our place and redeem us.

Grace… came through Jesus Christ. John 1:17

That's Grace- by Dr. Desmond Ford I hope I made sense when I made comments about Grace. In Romans 5: 17. For if by one man's offense death reigned through the one who sinned, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the one Jesus Christ. Dr. Des Ford has in one of his video series" Tears and smiles. He talks of a great prophet Moses, only one man's work which can point to Christ. A gain in Hebrew 11, if one was to read the whole chapter to read and understand about grace towards men and women of old, even before our savior's death. . Men saw christ fugitively from a far. In verse Hebrews 11:13 But without faith it is impossible to please him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him Hebrew11:6 . These men came to God as they were, so can we, having been died with Christ through faith, we shall then be lifted up with these great men of old. IF we cannot BE LIKE THESE MEN AND WOMEN. WE CAN Just tell THE LOVE OF JESUS, THAT HE DIED FOR OUR SINS. AND THAT HIS GRACE IS ENOUGH FOR ALL MEN I LOVE YOU DR. FORD. YOU MAKE Me A BETTER PERSON AMEN ?

That's Grace - By Dr. Desmond Ford Grace from Our heavenly father and His Son, our savior Jesus Christ. Indeed from John 3:16. Our Father loved us enough to Grant us a free gift by sending his only begotten son to Atone for Our sins. As stated from Ephesians 1:4 just as he chose us in Him from from the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love. Even from then to the very time when, the Son of God came down to us , even so to die for our sins. And by that Grace, how much more can we ask of him. Just to believe in one who died for our sins' at Calvary. Therefore if we come to him in humility, his grace will be sufficient for us. I can mansion a few names of men and women who found Gods grace. Samson in prison, after his strength was shaved with his hair, by the philistines. King David, having killed his soldier for his wife, 2 Samuel 11"16. When Uriah was sent to his death at war yet David is called a man with a heart of God , Does God condone sin? No! David asked for forgiveness 2 Samuel 22:16..... The thief on the Cross found grace in christ by turning his eyes upon christ., and said Lord remember me when you come into your kingdom. Luke 23:42 and Jesus said to him , as suredly, as l say to you, today you will be with me in paradise" These men found Grace through faith, so can we. All we need is to turn our eyes upon Christ. And again Ephesian 2:5.even when we were dead in trespasses' we were made alive together with Christ, therefore, ( by grace we were saved) Therefore let us glorify our selves in Christ. Thank you Dr.. Ford, Aman with a heart of God, and guided by the spirit of God Amen ? Pauline
