If it wasn't for GRACE

Grace, sweet grace, God's grace is that which He gives us DESPITE what we actually deserve!

The Apostle Paul said that we are saved by grace through faith in Ephesians. Paul also said of himself and consequently all believers that he is what he is by the grace of God. Paul also taught the Corinthians a principle in order to bring the proper perspective to those who were in the error of boasting and despising others, that principle lies in the answer to this question 'what do you have that you have not received'?
How amazing then is grace?
So amazing that the greater majority of God haters woke up today!
So amazing that there are people who while in their sins are consistently exposed to a gospel they reject!
So amazing that Christ did not come upon this earth to cast every single human being into the only place they could rightly claim as theirs, HELL!

Such grace has been extended to and showered upon us who have experienced it through the love of God. Oh how He loves us! Do you wonder how much? Then consider and weigh the worth of Christ; it is beyond our understanding!

Dear believer don't despair at the feelings of God towards you, if you are His then His love isn't contingent upon your performance for it was NEVER contingent upon your faith either!!
In fact what Paul was saying, what the scriptures teach is:
If it wasn't for grace, then man left to himself would NEVER seek God, would NEVER repent of his darling sins! If it wasn't for grace, man would NEVER see any worth or beauty in Christ! If it wasn't for grace, man could not see, could not understand, could not taste of the glories, beauties, and delights found in God!
Dear believer you must also come to grips with yet another reality these passages make clear:
That, if it wasn't for grace the HOLIEST of men would revert to utter hedonistic anarchy! If it wasn't for grace the most fruitful and powerful preachers would be instantly stripped of any ability to hold a single persons attention!
Eternal security? Will God ever take His love from me? Can I lose this grace given salvation?
PLEASE LISTEN UP AND HIGHLIGHT THIS REALITY:
1. IF THERE WAS A POSSIBILITY OF GOD TAKING BACK THIS GIFT, THEN IT WOULD HAVE NEVER BEEN GIVEN TO YOU!
2. IF YOU COULD CAUSE GOD TO REMOVE HIS LOVE BY SOME HEINOUS SIN, THEN EVERY BELIEVER WOULD HAVE CAUSED GOD TO DO THAT WITHIN DAYS, IF NOT HOURS, IF NOT MINUTES AFTER THEIR CONVERSION!

Oh how He loves us!
