Grace Given to You

God's grace is given to you in salvation. It is not your works, but the work of God in Christ. Grace is not something that you deserve, but God freely gives you (Ephesians 2:8-9). Grace takes away all your sins at the cross of Jesus (1 John 1:7). Grace gives you the righteousness of God in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:21). Grace gives you faith to trust in Christ (Philippians 1:29).

Grace is given to you in Christ. He is the fullness of grace (John 1:16). Believing on the Lord Jesus is receiving the grace of God. Preceding grace awakens us to our need to believe in Christ (John 16:7-11). Grace enables you to believe on Christ (Acts 15:9-11). Salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. 

Grace is given to you as unmerited favor from God in Christ. Grace is the gift of salvation that you receive through the gospel of Christ. Grace can never be bought, earned, nor achieved through personal effort. Grace is always bestowed by the God of all grace. Grace gives you eternal life in Christ (Romans 6:23).

Grace is given through the Holy Spirit changing your heart. The Spirit of grace operates directly on your heart, to change you from the inside out. God's grace changes your mind to understand the things of God (Romans 12:2). Grace changes your will to desire God's good will (Philippians 2:13). Grace changes your emotions to have a tender heart toward God (Ezekiel 36:26).
