Happy New Month folks – May this month of February be filled with an abundance of God’s grace & love
Today marks our first Thursday Forum Question Series
Before we delve into the discussion, let’s define Grace.
Paul Zahl’s definition – “Grace is unconditional love toward a person who does not deserve it.”
Wikipedia reports “Grace in Christianity is the free and unmerited favor of God as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the bestowing of blessings.”
Ifesdomain’s definitions: Grace is unmerited favor. God’s grace is unearned love. It’s free, genuine and unattainable from any living/non-living being.
I noted non-living because we live in a society where non living things such as money can buy opportunities and favors from man. However, money can’t grant or buy eternal grace. It can’t buy eternity with God. Proverbs 11:4 says “Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death.” (KJV)
what does GRACE really mean?
I think it’s more than just being alive (don’t get me wrong, it’s of the Lord’s mercies, we are alive). I think it’s just so great and different for every individual.
Can we quantify God’s grace? on our lives?
As Christians, can we ever run out of God’s grace?
This question frightens me because as much I would like to say no, I truly believe the answer is YES!. Case example: King Saul.
