Don’t Frustrate the Grace of God

We can’t earn it and we certainly can’t purchase it.  We can’t work to get it, can’t work to keep it,

“Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified (Gal. 2:16).”

Who could keep the letter of the law?  None of us.  We can barely keep traffic laws, parking laws and the like.  No matter how we try, we’d never be able to keep the law for any extended period of time.  And we must be careful not to think that we’d be able to do so.   But thank God for His grace.  “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God:  Not of works, lest any man should boast (Eph. 2:8-9).”

“I do not frustrate the grace of God:  for if righteousness come by the law, Christ is dead in vain (Gal. 2:21).”  We dare not suggest that Christ’s death, burial and resurrection were not sufficient to pay the price and penalty for our sin.  He did it all and left nothing more for us to do.  All we need do is accept the free gift.  Make Him Savior and Lord.  God, thank you for your unmerited favor; truly, we do not deserve it.  Thank you, Jesus, that you paid it all and that you took our crimson stain of sin and washed it whiter than snow.  Help us to serve you out of our love for you–not believing that our works could save us.  Help us not to frustrate you.  Thanks for visiting, following, subscribing.  Take care & be blessed.  Please also visit… www.xtreme-fire.com
