Scripture Reading: II Corinthians 8:9

An old favorite hymn begins, "Marvelous grace of our  loving Lord." True, pure grace is from Him alone. How  shallow are those who claim to live by their own self-  sufficiency. Natural man can in no sense generate the  spiritual strength required to survive human existence  victoriously. Our victory was purchased, and "we are more  than conquerors through Him that loved us" (Romans 8:37).  "For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though  He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that ye  through His poverty might be rich."

The work of God's grace is unfathomable to our limited  capacity to understand. He was under no obligation to pay the  penalty for our guilt; it was a voluntary act of His grace.  "Christ Jesus, who being in the form of God, thought it not  robbery to be equal with God: but made Himself of no  reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was  made in the likeness of men: and being found in fashion as a  man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death,  even the death of the cross" (Philippians 2:5b-8).

Man finds it difficult to comprehend that he can do  literally and absolutely nothing to earn or deserve salvation.  He ponders Job's question: "How should man be just with  God?" (Job 9:2) Our apostle explains, "Not by works of  righteousness which we have done, but according to His  mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration and  renewing of the Holy Ghost; which He shed on us abundantly  through Jesus Christ our Saviour; that being justified by His  grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of  eternal life" (Titus 3=5-7). Such is the grace of our Lord Jesus  Christ!

How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
