Indescribable love and grace:
The Gospel is not about us giving anything to God.The Gospel is about God loving us so much that He gave Himself to you in Jesus, His Son.
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.”
We were dead in sin but God decided to give Himself to us!Jesus died with us taking all our sin so that we were made alive with Him in His glory and righteousness and eternal life.Jesus has given us everything He has, FREELY by GRACE through faith.
Ephesians 2 “4 But God, being rich in mercy, for his great love with which he loved us, 5 even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— 6 and raised us up with him, and made us to sit with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7 that in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus; 8 for by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, that no one would boast.”
It is completely free and 100% grace without our works.God who needs nothing from us, gave Himself to us freely.
Ephesians 1 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with EVERY spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ”
God gave us EVERYTHING He has in Jesus Christ, freely by grace.Can you imagine that dear believer?God gave you Every spiritual blessing in Christ freely by grace?This entire lifetime is not enough to understand His love.It cannot be contained in a book or even the entire universe.Only the Holy Spirit can reveal this grace in our hearts.
Ephesians 1:17 “that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him,”
Ephesians 3:19 “and to know Christ’s love which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”
1 Corinthians 2:9-10 “Things which an eye didn’t see, and an ear didn’t hear, which didn’t enter into the heart of man, these God has prepared for those who love him.” But to us, God revealed them through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. “
Lord Jesus, help us know your love and grace even more.Your love is better than life.
