THE GIFT BY GRACE – By Robert E. Hanna


THE GIFT BY GRACE
Robert E. Hanna


Scripture Reading: Romans 5:15

"The wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord ... Thanks be unto God for His unspeakable [inexpressible, priceless] gift" (Romans 6:23; II Corinthians 9:15). From the beginning, man has sought to earn his release from the bondage of the inherent state of sin into which he is born because of the fall of Adam when he disobeyed God in the garden of Eden. Hence the cry of King David: "Behold, I was shapen in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me" (Psalm 51:5). "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one" (Romans 3:10).

What to do! If we are unacceptable in God's sight even without ever having turned from or against Him - even before we have seen the light of day on our entrance into the world - how can we escape condemnation? Job queried, "How should man be just with God? If he will contend [dispute] with Him, he cannot answer Him one [question] in a thousand. He is wise in heart, and mighty in strength who hath [ever] hardened himself against Him and hath prospered?" Even today men continue to puzzle in like manner.

Even if one arrives at the point of recognizing the need to please God through obedience to His demands, one finds himself confused as to the nature of those demands; but there is great good news! Today, we have at our disposal the completed Word of God-the Holy Bible-in which we discover that "God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3: 16); and the gift is BY GRACE!
