By God's Grace

God’s grace is His unmerited favor. We do not deserve the eternal life we are given—which includes forgiveness, adoption, fellowship, reward, and security—at the moment of salvation. God saves us by grace when we place our faith in Jesus Christ. We see God’s grace throughout the Bible.

God’s grace appears in Genesis 3 when the Lord promised a Redeemer and clothed Adam and Eve with coats of animal skins. Genesis 6 says that Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord and was spared in the world-wide Flood. Abraham received God’s grace when God moved him from Ur to Canaan. Jacob, the deceiver, was given grace when he wrestled with the Angel of the Lord and submitted to Him. Moses and the children of Israel followed God’s grace in the Exodus. Rahab and her family stood on grace when the walls of Jericho fell. Ruth found grace as a repentant Moabite.

God saves and blesses by grace, but we also serve God by grace. The Apostle Paul said, “But by the grace of God I am what I am…but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me” (I Cor. 15:10). Everything we do for God is by His grace. Let us never look at our lives and think that in some way we deserve God’s blessing. Anything good about us and every blessing we have is by grace.
