The Bible says that “…where sin abounded, grace abounded much more… (Romans 5:20).” This has been the Gospel message from the start. The abundance of grace available through the work of Jesus Christ far surpasses the quantity of sin. Grace empowers us to be better than who we once were. It’s important to know and realize, in every level of our walk with God, no matter what we face, He has granted us “…grace upon grace (John 1:16)”
Here are 5 things the Bible says about grace:
For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me.
1 Corinthians 15:10
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
2 Corinthians 12:9
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.
