So what is grace? One definition is “A disposition to be generous or helpful: good will.” Another is “undeserved kindness“. Now if you have read the two sections on sin and judgement you know we are in pretty bad shape, and rightfully so. I think the Bible defines God’s grace far better than I ever could, so let’s see what the Bible says: For God so loved the world that he gave His only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God sent the Son into the world not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him. He who believes in him is not condemned; he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. (John 3:16-19). “But God shows his love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.”
Think about it this way, many people would die for a family member or for good person, but how many would be willing to suffer and die for someone who has commited crimes against their own family and hates them? I venture to say no one, if you are being truthful. But God was willing. That is God’s grace!
By now you should realize that you are guilty and going to hell, so why do you need Jesus, because He is the one who stepped in and paid your fine, so God can legally dismiss your case and find you innocent and worthy to stand before God.
God offers this as a free gift to anyone, all you need to do is accept the gift! To see how to accept this gift go to the next section “The Gift”.
