           God's Grace - Unmerited Favor 

 

Mankind was created in God's image to be God's children.   God is entirely righteous and entirely love.  He loved His children, but when they sinned His righteousness demanded spiritual, then physical death.  His plan to redeem His children entailed sending His Law, then sending His Grace - His Son Jesus Christ.

God's Law included blessings for keeping the Law and curses for failing to keep the law.  The purpose for the Law was to prove to mankind that they could never obey the Law and needed Grace.  John 1:17 says "The Law was given by Moses, but Grace and Truth came through Jesus Christ."   Grace came.  It was Jesus, warm and personal.

Jesus was and is God's unmerited favor to mankind.  At the cross God's wrath and judgment for all sin (past, present, and future) was poured out onto Jesus.  He became sin that mankind would become righteous again.  All the curses of the law that we deserved were put onto Jesus.  All the blessings that Jesus deserved for keeping and fulfilling the Law were transferred to mankind.

You must be Born Again to be made righteous, in right standing with God, and to receive God's Grace and blessing.  The pages of this website, listed on the left border, describe how a person lives in the Grace of God each day.

  Definitions:

  1. Favor:  Excessive kindness or unfair partiality; preferential treatment
  2. Blessing:  a favor or gift bestowed by God, thereby bringing happiness.
  3. Grace:  The freely given, Unmerited Favor and love of God

A person that is born again should live in a state of Grace.  He should be continuously receiving God's unmerited favor and blessings in every area of his life.  Worry and fear interrupt the flow of God's Grace in one or more aspects of the person's life while Grace is freely flowing in those areas where he is at rest.
