Grace, Love and Peace to each and every one of you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
2 Timothy 2:15 KJV
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not
to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
4 But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love that He had for us,5 made us alive with the Messiah even though we were dead in trespasses. You are saved by grace!
The Word of God explains that we are saved.
How are we saved – Verse 4 & 5 gives us three reasons why we are saved.
1. Because of God’s rich mercy
2. Because of God’s great love
3. Because of God’s grace
Bible gives us a clear picture about God’s Love
1 John 4:16-19 – God is love
And we have known and believed the love that God has to us. God is love; and he that dwells in love dwells in God, and God in him. Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear: because fear has torment. He that fears is not made perfect in love. We love him, because he first loved us.
1 John 4:9 – 11 – God’s love is sacrificial
9 This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. 10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 11 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
Romans 8:37-39 – God’s love is inseparable
37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Isaiah 54:10 – God’s love is unshakable
Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion on you.
Psalm 136:26 – God’s love endures forever
26 Give thanks to the God of heaven. His love endures forever.
