Saved by Grace.

 “God’s readiness to give and forgive is now public. Salvation’s available for everyone! We’re being shown how to turn our backs on a godless, indulgent life, and how to take on a God-filled, God-honoring life. This new life is starting right now, and is whetting our appetites for the glorious day when our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, appears. He offered himself as a sacrifice to free us from a dark, rebellious life into this good, pure life, making us a people he can be proud of, energetic in goodness.”

What a powerful grace, it gives us the power to live a grace controlled life and say no to ungodliness and worldly passions and live upright and godly lives. Those who make light and degrade God’s grace are at the point of blasphemy and need to know that grace is not a pass card to sinning because God will forgive me, that is not the message of grace. Grace provides the power to live righteously, it is not permission to sin.

When we miserably fail we do not become unsaved and saved again when we ask for forgiveness. Max Lucado puts it this way…”On-and-off salvation never appears in the bible. Salvation is not a repeated phenomenon. Scripture contains no example of a person who is saved, then lost, then resaved, then lost again.”

He goes on to say this about sinning believers…”Eventually his own will hear his voice, and something within them will awaken. And when it does, they will begin to sing again.”

Such is the power of grace. Rest assured in His grace let its power vitalizes your relationship with God and with people…It is by grace that salvation comes…it is by grace that salvation stays and is maintained. Sinning, is not the grace message that the misunderstood grace haters accuse it as…grace provides the ability to live righteously!
