Grace Beyond Our Expectation

What is grace and how is it defined?

dictionary.com defines it as -courteous will, a divinely given talent or blessing

In the Bible, scriptures says: 

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.” Ephesians 2: 8-9

Grace beyond expectation is that no matter what we do, God loves us and grants His grace through our Lord Jesus Christ.  This God’s way of giving us a chance with anything we go through, even though we don’t deserve it. There is nothing that we can do to attain it. His grace is given freely by the blood of Jesus Christ.

Grace is knowing you are excepted as you are.

You are loved, you are forgiven and you are saved. 

No one can separate you from the love of God. When Paul says in Ephesians ‘not by works so that no man can boast’ he’s really saying you are saved by the blood of the Savior Jesus. Whatever you have done, grace is given. You don’t have to do anything. It is freely given to you. Grace is a gift and gives you courage to do God’s work in the world. With God’s grace you don’t look at work as a way into heaven. You look at it as a free gift for us to bless others and be merciful to those who don’t understand it. God will show you in His time what He needs you to do. You will know it in your heart. He will place it there.

Place your trust in the Lord and all through your life, He will always be the One who shows you how much He loves you.

In what way has has God shown grace to you?

Have you shown grace to someone who does not deserve it?
