How God Gives Grace

How do we receive the grace of God? Understand that grace never comes into your life without peace. Grace and peace always come together. To experience the grace of God is to find peace with God. "May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace" (Philemon 3, NLT).

God gives grace through our Lord Jesus Christ. It is given by God our Father in Christ. It's given through the ultimate relationship in life. Believing on the Lord Jesus Christ is the way to the Father's grace. Jesus said, "No one can come to the Father except through me" (John 14:6, NLT). He gives grace that brings peace.

God gives grace as unmerited favor. We receive the unmerited favor of God in Christ. Jesus is the only person who ever lived to please God in all things. Jesus Christ is God's gift of grace to us. By faith in Christ alone, we receive favor with God that brings peace. That peace is a fruit of the Spirit of Christ working in our lives.

God gives grace so amazing, because it's not about what we do. It's about what God has done for us and through us in Christ alone. Grace is God's great gift for us in Christ to receive by faith alone. When God gives grace, peace brings assurance.
