Have you unwrapped God’s free gift of grace?
For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; (Titus 2:11-13 KJV)
God’s grace has been made clearly known to all men. It is mankind that refuses to acknowledge the presence of God or His free grace. It has always been God’s desire that all mankind would place their faith in Him receiving His underserved favor or grace of God. Grace is something that can only come from God through His Son Jesus Christ and one must have His grace in order to have hope now and for all eternity. Without God there is no real life or hope; now or for all eternity.
God has not restricted salvation through grace to His inner circle or hand-picked groups of people. God does not divide or alienate anyone according to the world’s divisive standards but welcomes anyone who has a heartfelt desire to serve Him. God has offered His free grace to any who will accept His gift. Many leave this free present untouched and unwrapped because they have no desire to personally know and serve Him.
Many are not willing to live according to His righteousness and be subject to His authority so they suppress the Truth of His Word making it out to be a fable or fairy tale and realistic for today. Many people today want to do their own thing, in their own way, and according to their own time table and not be restricted by any power source looming over them.
The eternal realm will be where God divides those who believe and serve Him coming face to face with them for all eternity away from those who never acknowledged God choosing to live for self upon this earth will be cast in Hell for all eternity.
God’s way seems constricting and oppressive. Real freedom can only be found in a personal relationship with Him through faith receiving His free gift of grace with open arms and living in obedience to His Word.
