Gifted with Grace






You might be a Christian, if you ... are a grace-receiver.

What is grace, anyway? It's a gift from God we do not earn and do not deserve.


For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Nothing you can do makes you worthy of God's favor; it's a gift. 

You just have to accept it

He won't force you to take His gift. You are free to choose.

But why wouldn't you want everything God has for you?

I'm so glad you are here! Follow me each day as I attempt to define what a Christian is ... and isn't.

I'm always interested in your thoughts. Let me know if there is a word Christians use that you don't understand. I'd be interested to write about it.



This post was written for Day Seven of my A-Z Blogging Challenge series, "You Might Be a Christian ... from A-Z." Go here each day to see all of my posts each day as they go live.

Incredibly simple and abundantly clear! People constantly cry out for justice; thank God He does not give it to us!! Justice demands we pay for our wrongs, our sins. Then in comes Mercy handing out Grace to cover those sins and set us free! While He doesn't force anyone to take it, He can bring everything to bare to create the circumstance that would most likely open our eyes, our minds, our hearts to open our hands and receive this marvelous gift!
