Wouldn`t that be appealing during this time of `credit crunch`?Even better- credit with a zero interest rate.Free. Gods grace – His lovingkindness and goodness is unlimited,unending,unfailing and unmerited-FREE.The PIN number is…or access is by FAITH.We can receive the benefits of Gods grace not by our good works but by trusting in Jesus Christ.He paid the price by giving His life.We neither have the strength nor ability to please God to His standards.Despite our failure and sin against Him God shows His love for us when He gave His Son to take the punishment we deserved.By turning to God and trusting in Jesus Christ we can know and access the benefits of Gods love-
Justified-Forgiven and stand before God just as if we never sinned.
Peace-No longer an enemy of God.
Saved-We shall be saved from the punishment He is to pour out for sin and wrong doing.
Reconciled-the broken relationship between God and us restored.No longer enemies but friends and even more adopted into His family.
Hope-Gods love and life put inside us.
Provision-God is able to do beyond what we could ask or imagine for us.Ephes.3:20`And God is able to make ALL grace ABOUND toward you,that you ALWAYS having ALL sufficiency in ALL things,may have an ABUNDANCE for EVERY good work.2Cor.9:8
Great Grace! Paul says one of the reasons he prays for us is that we try to grasp the depth,length and height of Gods love towards us.Ephes.3:14-21
