Sinners In Need Of Grace

Mar 28, 2024 | Hope

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,
whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. 
This was to show God’s righteousness, 
because in his divine forbearance, he had passed over former sins.”
Romans 3:23-25

 

As we move into Good Friday and Easter Weekend, we will look at a Bible Verse about the need we have for a Savior.

Over the weekend let us have quiet times of reflection in God’s Word. Let us also worship Him in song with thanksgiving for the mercy He has given us sinners.

As Christians we know fully that except for the grace of God, none of us would have the gift of salvation.

Not one.

We marvel at His mercy and His grace, aware we are undeserving.

We are “justified” by God’s grace.

As the Holy Spirit works in the believer’s heart, giving him faith, we take hold of Christ in our hearts and cling to Him in life. He becomes our first love.

If a person has faith in Jesus Christ alone, He has complete salvation.

Christ is sufficient for our salvation.

As Paul wrote in Romans, we are justified by faith alone. In Christ alone we are saved.

It is not our faith or our good deeds or works that save us, but Christ alone.

Christ is our righteousness.

He grows us in our faith as we commune with Him.

Any other name can’t buy or claim our salvation than that of Jesus.

God made Christ the propitiation for our sins.

This means basically Christ died on the cross for the wrath of God we deserve for our sins.

If that doesn’t make you profoundly grateful, nothing much will.

Christ took that cup of wrath upon the cross, and died for me and for you, sinners who fall short of the glory of God.

None of us apart from Christ is righteous, without sin, alive and free to live forevermore.

“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain,
to receive power and wealth 
and wisdom and strength
and honour and glory and praise!”
Revelation 5:12

That is where we’ll leave it for today, for the weekend,
