GOD'S GRACE leaves us at a loss for words (Which Indeed it should). Some believe GRACE offers a minimal standard which gives Salvation but allows them to continue their own agendas in this world. Yes, "A ticket to Heaven"; "Unmerited Favor"; "Endless Love". And the Cross? JESUS died for our sins, was there anything else? What do you think the Scriptures are talking about when they say; "...on earth peace to men on whom HIS favor rests..." (Luke 2:14), or "...righteousness that comes from GOD and is by Faith." (Philippians 3:9)? GOD did not extend HIS Grace to merely forgive our sins. Grace has given us the access into HIS presence EVERY DAY! Salvation is not giving up some "forbidden pleasure" that GOD denied me, so I could prove my sincerity! The power of the Cross gives us an eternal friendship with GOD. GRACE lets Love overwhelm us and once we taste it, we will never be satisfied with anything else. Grace is the empowering Presence of God enabling you to be who He created you to be, and to do what He has called you to do. Sin is no longer a temptation or a forbidden fruit that we desire because we won't settle for anything less than a life of GRACE our RELATIONSHIP with GOD! Is that, WHAT HAPPENED ON THE CROSS ANYWAY?
