Grace!

I’ve noticed that the Father
Won’t force Himself in to,
A heart that keeps refusing
His gift, the love that’s true.

His grace is always reaching
And extends to stubborn souls,
He longs to show His mercy
And make the broken whole.

He waits with gentle kindness
His compassion knows no bounds,
His tender invitation
Is for the lost to still be found!

You are a forgiving God, gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love. Nehemiah 9:17

Jesus Paid It All!

For those who have a problem understanding and accepting God’s grace: We can’t do anything to save ourselves. God doesn’t require our blood – He requires/required Jesus’ blood. We can try and we can “work”, but salvation comes through Christ and Him alone. Any strength we have and any power enabling us to turn from sin and accept the gift of salvation comes in and through Jesus Christ. That is God’s grace and He never stops extending it to all who are lost. No, He doesn’t require our blood. All He asks for is our heart!

It is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:8-10
