Ten Reasons We Need Grace

Description

Without grace, we would still be dead, sinners and all the other things the Bible said about us. In Christ, we are totally alive and heirs of the King.

Sometimes the truth is hard to take. The truths that are the most difficult to take are found in the bible.

Who likes being called a sinner, or hearing that his heart is wicked, deceitful and beyond cure?

You certainly would not include these in the category of “nice things to say about others.”

The bible not only says these things, it does so with astonishing directness. It also tells us that we were..

  • lost,
  • enemies of God,
  • unrighteous,
  • wicked,
  • slaves to sin,
  • deceived and
  • disobedient.

However, the most stunning truth of all is the fact that we were dead spiritually (Ephesians 2:1). Think about that. There was no spiritual life in us at all.

Hard stuff to take indeed.

Jesus had to act on our behalf to change all this. Out of His one act of righteousness flowed His gift of grace to us, a gift that brought to us justification and life.

Without grace, we would still be dead, sinners and all the other things the Bible said about us. In Christ, we are totally alive and heirs of the King.

I do have a question for you. How would you describe spiritual death?
