“Experiencing the Grace of God”

There is nothing quite like experiencing the Grace of God.

Please read the following verses, seeing how the apostle Paul thinks about the grace he experiences.
.
1 Timothy 1:12-17
12 I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me faithful, appointing me to his service.
13 Even though I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man, I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and unbelief.
14 The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.

15 Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners — of whom I am the worst.
16 But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life.
17 Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

When people finally realize that we are sinners on the road to hell, that our relationship with the Lord God is broken and there is nothing we can do to fix it, we pause and wonder, what can we do?

The Lord God knew we would need His help to get to heaven, so in His grace, He dies for all sin.

Then He declares us righteous and we can live in heaven with Him one day.

Praise and thanks be to the Lord our God. Has done what we could no do for ourselves,
He has saved the believers.

May all the glory, majesty, honor and credit go to the Lord our God, our blessed Redeemer.
