It Is Written Ephesians 2:8 for by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God.
Yes it is true. For many people it is hard to believe. They are so used to religion telling them all of the ongoing things they must do, they have trouble thinking that a gift gives them what they have been trying to do on their own. With religion they had no assurance of salvation. What they had was condemnation. Grace is salvation and no condemnation.
A couple of things about grace. When you accept Jesus and what He did for you, it must be with your whole heart. Grace includes many things. By Jesus stripes you were healed, by his blood your sins were washed away. All sins you have committed or will commit have been cleansed. His resurrection brought eternal life.
Next Romans 6:14, person shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.
You will not want to sin, because you will want to please God. Being under grace, you will be a blessing to other people. You also become righteous through Jesus, because He is righteous. Just to clarify what righteous means , it means right standing with God.
Another part of walking in the grace of God, is that you have all sufficiency in all thing, so you'll have more than enough to do good works for everyone you meet.
God intended for all believers, in Jesus name, and by His grace, to teach the word, heal the sick, cast out demons, and work miracles. This is what Jesus told the apostles before He went back to heaven after His resurrection.
There is so much to grace, then I suggest you look in your concordance, and find all the verses on grace, take them one by one, and really think about them. This just touched the surface.
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
