The Unmerited Favor of God

By   •   August 11   •   Topics:

“Grace,” according to the dictionary, is the unmerited favor of God toward mankind. The word “grace” is used over 170 times in the New Testament alone. Grace is not bought. It is a free gift of almighty God to needy mankind. When I picture Jesus Christ dying on the cross, I see the free gift of God’s grace in Christ reconciling the world unto Himself. I sing with the songwriter, “Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now am found, was blind, but now I see.” Your human mind, with its philosophy of an equal return for favors done, can hardly comprehend the full meaning of this grace of God. But when you catch, by the inspiration of God, its full meaning, you will leave the limits of human reasoning and revel in the spiritual riches of divine truth and privilege.

Yes, the grace of God is a reality. Thousands have tried, tested, and proved that it is more than a cold creed, a docile doctrine, or a tedious theory. The grace of God has been tested in the crucible of human experience, and has been found to be more than an equal for the problems and sins of humanity.

Learn more about the grace God offers through His divine love.

Prayer for the day

Lord, this day help me to come to a more full and abundant awareness of Your bountiful grace. Stimulate me to serve You.

    Without God‘s amazing grace, we would be absolutely hopeless. Far too often we take God’s grace for granted. Forgive me, Lord, when I do that.

    Lord Jesus, I praise you and thank you for your grace and favor. My fiancee is in Dubai recovering from a serious injury he obtained on his way home from where he was stationed. We are praying for a miracle from our gracious Savior that he will be home soon!

    This message is so inspirational to me. I’m preaching at my church on Wednesday night, I will be preaching on Grace God’s unmerited favor toward us. Without God’s grace there would be no salvation and no redemption. I thank Jesus everyday for being the atonement in my life. Amen.
