If Grace is the Explanation
The grace of God is the preeminent theme of the New Testament. Scripture shows that grace is responsible for everything good that affects Born Again Christians. Salvation, spiritual gifts, human talent, wisdom, and modern achievements all come through the endowment of God’s grace. The Bible speaks of prevenient grace, which applies to sinners, and special grace that applies to Christians. It speaks of “great grace” and how God “abounds in grace.” In Titus 2:11, the Apostle Paul said the “grace of God has appeared to all men,” and the Lord has “lavished us with grace.” Yes, the grace of God is the preeminent theme of the New Testament, so much so, that it is indispensable to the new life Christians have through Christ Jesus!
It’s interesting that several years ago, while praying, I heard the Holy Spirit’s thundering whisper to my soul. He said:
“If grace is the explanation;
Then seek for grace with an exclamation!”
