The Grace of God

Galatians 2:21: “I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteouness come by the law then Christ is dead in vain.”

Do not set aside the grace of God by trying to embellish its effectiveness with your own good works.  We must understand that if our keeping of the Law could gain us salvation, then Jesus didn’t need to die. His suffering, His pain, His humiliation in the eyes of man was nothing more than another crucified Jew who had been found guilty of trying to overthrow Rome’s power.  If we could work out our own salvation, then Jesus was just one of thousands of Jews who were crucified by Rome; He was nothing special, nothing to  regret, no one to worry about.

That is the lie Satan wants us to believe. Jesus. Just another Jew who happened to die on a cross.  Happened all the time. No big deal.

But He was  a very big deal. He was the Son of God. He became sin for us, Who knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him (II Cor. 5:21). That’s a  very big deal, indeed. .

  1. Yes. The gift of salvation is one treasure worth finding. A sacrificial gift offered to all. The most precious gift indeed. “For what good is it to win the world, but lose your soul?” Yet how many are aiming high in this world, while not given any thought to their final destination. Perhaps they don’t realize the soul does live on after this journey here on earth.

    Amazing article. Thank you for sharing your biblical wisdom.

      1. It is, indeed. I’m going to an ocean beach with a girlfriend this morning, and to the lake with my daughter and her friend in the afternoon. The house will have to clean itself 😉 .
