For many people, the Grace of God is a mystery, and they want to know what it is and how to get a little of that Grace into their lives, here is an article about the Grace of God and how to get that grace.

Explanation of The Grace

When a Christian says that you are saved by the Grace of God, many people have no clue what that means, they just think it is something that is nice to say about God, however for the Christian it has a broader and more complete meaning. The Grace of God is the most precious gifts that you can expect from God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. This Grace is God's ultimate plan for humanity to keep them from being swept away from him through sin, to keep us from destroying ourselves and allows us to be closer to him the way he has always planned for us to be.

The Bible tells you that “For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under the law but under grace.” Romans 6:14, this means while the Bible gives you a large number of laws for you to learn how to live right, however none of these laws, none of these rules, can actually keep sin out of your life, only by the Grace of God are you able to get out from the prison of sin, only through Grace you can live a life that does not include the dominion of sin over your life.

The Grace of God is the complete and total continuous plan for humanity, it came with the death of Christ but it continues throughout our lives with the Holy Spirit, who stays with us in our daily life, it allows us to continue in the name of his son, it allows us to live a Godly life and it allows us to continually live with this Grace as a guidance for our lives.

“And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace.” John 1:16, this means that God so loved us, that he gave us all of his grace and that he continues to keep giving us that same grace over and over again. As we spend our live trusting and believing in the Son of God and we continue to live with the Holy Spirit and we continue to call out to God the Father for our needs, we will continue to receive all that he has for us and we will live in the Grace of God now and we will continue to keep living there in that Grace.

The Grace of God has justified us which means it has made us innocent before God, how did this happen, Jesus, God the Son has died on the cross and took our sin, paid the ransom created by sin with his own life. This act of Grace was just one of the times that God showed his children Grace. The grace of God started from the beginning of time and will continue for us forever until we receive our inheritance of eternal life and a place beside our God.

How you are probably wondering, do you qualify to receive this wonderful Grace, with its justification, it is through Faith and through confessing that you are a sinner, that you want to be free from that sin, and that you know that that freedom comes from the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who gave his life to take that sin away, and by the Grace of God you will be saved.
