God’s Grace Is Unmerited

By Princess Arira

What is the grace of God? Simply put, the grace of God is God’s blessing, healing and delivering you because of Jesus. The grace of God is God’s unearned, unmerited and undeserved Gods favour towards you because of the finished works of Christ in the cross. Because God’s grace is based on Jesus finished works and not yours, the only way you fall from this grace is by believing you can earn, merit and deserve it through your obedience and good works.
 For example, you fall from grace when you say I have prayed enough so God has to answer my prayers, you also fall from grace when you think that because you are serving in church or you have kicked a bad habit and God is pleased with you and has to bless you.
When you think that it is by your effort and obedience you receive God’s blessings, then you become like the Pharisee. They believed that their law-keeping justifies them and ensure that God will bless them. But the truth is that when you believe like them you have been estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by the law, you have fallen from grace. This means that you are cut off from Christ who is your salvation, redeemer, healer and provider, Christ has become of no effort to you.
My friend,  truly you would want Christ to be of effect to you, people to whom Christ is of effect receive from Him the miracle they need. When He is of effect to them, He’s their healer and they get healed. He’s their wisdom and they are wise before man, He’s their good success and they experience good success in all they do.
Beloved, for Christ to always be of effect to you and to never nullify the grace of God operating in your life just remember and believe that it is because of Christ and His finished work – His blood, His stripes, His death, His obedience – that you are justified healed and blessed.
Bible references: Gal 5:4 and Eph 2:8.
