The Free Gift of Grace
Grace is Jesus Christ. He is the undeserved favor given freely by God the Father. Christians readily understand getting saved by the gift of grace. But they often want to stay saved by works. That is counter intuitive and it is not the gospel. You don’t have to work to receive Him. You don’t have to work to keep Him. If you received a gift from your dad on your birthday, you got that gift freely. Dad paid for it. He gave it to you. He’s not trying to get it back from you if you don’t behave. So it is with the free gift of grace. You get to keep it and to live in it every day.
