“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of your- selves; it is the gift of God.”


What makes Christianity different from all the other religions of the world? Years ago that very question was discussed at a conference. Some of the participants argued that Christianity is unique in teaching that God became man. But someone objected, saying that other religions teach similar doctrines. What about the resurrection? No, it was argued, other faiths believe that the dead rise again. The discussion grew heated.

S.Lewis, a strong defender of Christianity, came in late, sat down, and asked, “What’s the rumpus about?” When he learned that it was a debate about the uniqueness of Christianity, he immediately commented, “Oh, that’s easy. It’s grace.”

How right he was, the very heart of the gospel is the supreme truth that God accepts us with no conditions whatsoever when we put our trust in the atoning sacrifice of His incarnate Son. Although we are helplessly sinful, God in grace forgives us completely.

It’s by His infinite grace that we are saved, not by moral character, works of righteousness, com- mandment keeping, or churchgoing. When we do nothing else but accept God’s total pardon, we receive the guarantee of eternal life (Titus 3:4-7).

One of the most amazing things about God’s grace is that it’s always available. If you realize that you are wretch that needs to be saved or lost and need to be found, or blind and you want to see clearly then God’s grace is available to you. No matter who you are, where you’re from or what you’ve done, God’s grace is still amazing. –

Grace is everything for nothing to those who don’t deserve anything. A moment of grace can change a lifetime. In fact, a moment of grace can change an eternity.
