HOW TO BE SAVED BY GRACE

It is very healthy for someone to realize he or she is not worthy of God's grace. People are not worthy of God's forgiveness and pardon for sin. The Bible teaches in Romans 5, verse 20, that God's grace forgives any treacherous degree of sin:

Where sin increases, grace abounds all the more.

People sometimes retort, "Yes, but you can lose the grace of God if you ever get it!" or ask, "You mean, God offers me forgiveness for every bad thought or thing I have ever done, no matter how I have lived in the past and no matter how many mistakes I will make in the future?" Such a person often concludes, "I'm not buying it!" Karma, gauged by the ego, seems to make much better sense. After all, impersonal "energy" spirits from the "god of this world" and the "prince of the power of the air" offer excitement and results. But this web site is about an offer from the moral, Law-Giving God, the only God who offers freedom from sin by grace through a Savior who died in our place.

Taking credit for our good deeds may feel more comfortable than giving God all the credit for His mercy toward people, and being one's own savior in autonomy may seem like a safer place…but only to a person who does not know about God's loving grace.

You can't earn it. If you can't earn it by good works, you can't lose it by bad works. It is a gift from God through Jesus who came as God in the flesh to die in our place and pay the penalty for the sins of mankind. He hates sin worse than any mere human, yet He humbled Himself to the point of death on a cross to suffer on behalf of adulterers, homosexuals, fornicators, liars, thieves, idolaters, sorcerers, deceivers and every wretched sinner in need of a Savior. That's because He's pure. By the strength that rose Jesus from the dead (with His tomb guarded by Roman soldiers), He is ruler over every quantum power and every dimension, so nothing can separate us from the love of God when Jesus Christ is our Lord. Even demons tremble at the power of Jesus toward those who believe.

Such grace alone comes as a gift from God through faith alone in Christ alone. Prisoners are set free within by such grace, but a captive has to want such forgiveness of sin on God's condition and not his own. A person can sometimes believe in the kindness of such a miraculous offer without submitting to Jesus as Lord. But God's grace is only granted to those who want a relationship with a pure, moral God, while guaranteeing hell for "those who love lying." Which kind of person are you?

For anyone who would like a relationship with Jesus of Nazareth, the risen Savior very much alive today—the One who was tempted in all things yet without sin, the God who is the Good Shepherd who knows His own by name, the only Incarnate God of Love whose blood cleanses from all sin, Who came for sinners and defeated death, the Lord who will never abandon His own—this gift comes as a result of wanting such a Savior by God's grace. No yoga prayer stance will acquire this gift of grace from God, and no amount of human consciousness can attain the moral excellence or "perfect spirituality," as neo-pagans call it, that Jesus Christ of Nazareth offers you through His victory over death and sin. No amount of therapy can empathize with sorrow like Jesus, the Man of Sorrows, who wants to live inside your heart by the Holy Spirit. The pure God of the Bible is the only God who can truly make a person better.

Would you accept God's grace and forgiveness of sin through Jesus and let Him make you new? Would you be willing to get to know a holy God, unlike yourself, through the only Bible written over a span of 1500 years by over 40 different authors, from kings to fishermen, fulfilling over 300 prophecies from the Old Testament to the New through Jesus? Would you like to know a God who hates sin with no deceit found in Him? Such a God wants to be your Friend if you would just bow the knee and surrender to His grace toward those who believe that Jesus paid it ALL. Such grace is free, but it costs people their DESIRE for debased living. Saving grace is always accompanied by a love for Jesus of Nazareth and sincere contrition of the heart, to repent of sin on behalf of all Jesus has done to pay for your freedom from sin and death in full.
