ReCharge Message: God's Amazing Grace

For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.

~Titus 2: 11-14

 Verses like this one not only describe how something works--in this case it talks about grace.  But verses like this one explain to us how it applies to us right here and right now.  But it requires a little work. We have to take it apart first and look at it in order to understand everything God intended for us to understand about these verses.  When we do that we understand the nature of grace. We understand grace by salvation.  We understand grace through sanctification.  We understand grace in glorification.  We understand grace as redemption. 

Grace is without limits.  It is a gift from God.  God offers grace to all mankind we need only accept it.  Grace teaches us and leads us to live godly lives.  Grace offers us hope of victory over evil.  Grace teaches us to turn away from sin.  Grace transforms us.  Grace changes us.  Grace can work miracles in the lives of those who are lost.  And even when we are weak, we are strong through Grace.   

As it says in John Chapter 1 verse 16: “And from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.”
