Grace, a gift from GOD

            Hi, Everyone! Hope you are all doing well! Please pray for me as in a couple of days I am going to be taking a college entrance exam at my local community college! Please keep me in your prayers! Thanks!

           Today's post is on grace. Today , I have been thinking a lot about this subject. What is grace? What does the Bible say about it? Here we go! Let's look at a few Bible verses on this subject.

           Grace is a gift . Ephesians 2:8,9 " 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."

           We are sinners in need of a SAVIOR! He gives us grace.  He shows mercy upon us if we will confess our sins and ask for forgiveness.

          But , grace does not give us an excuse to sin. Romans 6:1,2 says : " What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin , that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we , who are dead to sin, live any longer there in?"

               To be continued.......................................
