How Grace works

  What is God's grace ?  When do we receive it ?  How do we receive it ?

    Grace defined:
    Grace is the blessing of God that is engaged through His word. In other words, grace is the fruit of the land and God's word is the gate and walkway of that land.


The Land of Grace
 Past, Present and Future

Grace Given - Eph. 1:6-11

We have engaged the grace of peace and eternal life in Christ by receiving the gospel

(For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God Eph.2:8)



To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; Eph 1:6-7


We are engaging the grace that abounds in a faithful walk  as we abide in His word

(Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; 2 Peter 1:2)r 1:2)



Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:  Eph 1:8-9

In heaven, we will receive the grace of our promised inheritance in Christ. The extent to which we participate in  that inheritance depends on our faithfulness during our walk on earth.





That in the dispensation of the fulness of timeshe might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:In whom also we have obtained an inheritance,being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: Eph 1:10-11
