The phrase "by the grace of God" puzzles many people. The easiest way to describe it, is the Bible definition. It is the gift from God, not earned by us.
As you read the Word, you find that this gift is given during the acceptance of Jesus as Savior. It is undeserved, and cannot be attained by works. Another thing many people don't recognize as being grace, is, all the blessings that goes with it.
The most important thing, is with salvation you become a child of God. Eternal life with God is another. We don't realize how much it really means, because we receive it all by faith, and we don't realize how long forever is.
We also have direct access to our Father in Heaven, Jesus the son, and the Holy Spirit. To start listing all of the benefits would take a very long time. You will however find them all in the Bible.
All blessings we receive, even the ones we take for granted, like our five senses, are a gift from God. Everything we think say and do is because of His unmerited grace and favor toward us. If you look in your concordance at the back of your Bible under grace, you will find many verses that explaine exactly what grace is. God bless you and your family. Praise the Lord!
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.
Thank You Lord
