Saved By Grace

Many times in my life I've heard people say that we are saved by grace. I believe that this is so because the Bible tells us that we are. I also believe that grace needs something to activate it; we start our car because the battery activates the engine.

God's grace is an unmerited favor to man. Let's ask some questions about grace:

Did man want grace? I think he did.
Did man deserve grace? No.
Did God give man grace anyway? Yes.

Now let us notice by what means God's saving grace came: "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16).

If that isn't clear, notice another scripture from John. "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father) full of grace and truth" (John 1:14).

Before Jesus came there was not the saving grace and truth that Jesus brought to earth. For God so loved us that he sent Jesus to plead for us-- that through his death and the shedding of his blood, we might be saved.
