For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men (11).Who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
Let me reiterate salvation is God's plan for delivering His people from the dangerous snares of sin that He spared no expense in delivering all who believe and accept the atoning works of His Son Jesus Christ. It was God's love, grace and mercy that He through His Son redeemed man. Justice demanded that man remain guilty of his sins and eternally separated from his creator, but mercy took its place. God had pronounced the whole world guilty of sin and man was doomed as he would face God's devastating wrath, but Christ said prepare me a body and I will go down and redeem man. What love!
God's grace is His free gift to all who believe through faith that yes Jesus Christ is His Son who came to earth to die for the world's sins.
If the question was raised, How do we receive God's grace? God's grace can and is received by (a) humbling one's self before God, (b) praying and fasting, (c) diligently seeking God, (c) worshiping God in truth, honesty and sincerity, (d) being continuously filled with the Holy Spirit who will overflow believers with His love and then yield to the His guidance. (e) Lastly, participating in the Lord's Supper in remembrance of Christ's death, burial and resurrection.
God's saving grace is a powerful act of love.
