If you think about your life today, you will discover that everything about your life has been by God’s grace. The life He gave you, the air you breath, the food you eat are not by your work and God does not give you all these things because you merit them nor because you prayed very well. Your academic, social, physical, professional financial achievements are actually because of God’s grace upon your life. God gives His grace to all humanity because He love them equally. He does not take pleasure in seeing anyone perish nor suffer.
KJV:For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
KJV:Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world.
However out of all the graces that God can give a man, there is a grace that is perculliar. This grace is amazing and definite and that why the Bible did not say “a grace” but ” the grace.” It is grace higher than any other grace that man can ever receive or enjoy from God. If a man enjoy all other grace from God and miss this particular grace, he has lost it all. You can succeed financially, academically, physically but without this grace, all those success will become bad success at the end.
What then is this grace that the Bible is taking about here ? It is the grace that bringeth salvation. The one and only grace that can set a man free from sin. The only grace that has power to transform a sinners to saint. The only grace that when it appears to you, your life will never remain the same.
It is the grace that teaches us how to deny ungodliness and worldliness. It teaches us how to live righteous life, how to live holy life in this corrupt world. Because you have tried to live holy on your own and faild does not mean that holiness is impossible. It is only impossible when we try to do it on our own. This is because of the total deprevity of all men from the fall of Adam and Eve.
So therefore God has made it in a way that there is no other way out of sinful nature apart from the provisions of this grace. How shall we be saved if we neglected the so grateful salvation through our Lord? Definitely there is no other way given among men if not through Jesus who is the way, the truth and the life.
This grace appears to you. That means you do not labour to get it. You cannot buy it with money. It just appears to you and that is what makes it to be grace.
Now what is the meaning of Grace? Grace is unmerited favor. Something you receive freely not because you are qualified for it but because of the love of God upon your life. And the Bible said that this amazing Grace has appeared to all men. This grace that transforms life is no longer in a hidden place but it has appeared to young and old. To the rich and the poor. To the strong and the weak. To all men the Bible said.
Thank God for His grace which has finally appeared to this generation. Many sought for this grace but were not given the opportunity. Now the good news, the good tiding the Holy spirit is announcing is that the grace has appeared. Not to professors but to all men.
What is that grace?
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
The grace is that God gave His only begotten son Jesus and that even when we were still sinners Christ laid down His life to die for us. He died that we may live. By His blood we are reconciled back to God because without blood, there is no remission of sin.
It is through this grace that we receive total forgiveness and cleansing from all our sin. With mouth confession is made unto salvation and with heart we believe. So therefore you that that is reading this article, just confess your sins to Him and believe that He died on the cross of Calvary because of you. Repent and tell Him to come into your heart and you shall be saved.
