By the GRACE of GOD

 

Isaiah 54:10

King James Version

10 For the mountains shall depart, 

and the hills be removed; 

but my kindness shall not depart from thee, 

neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, 

saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee.


What do we really mean when we say "by the grace of God"?

Do we really know the significance of it?

From an earlier post, we learned that JESUS is the GRACE of GOD.

If we use the phrase, "by the grace of God" to mean JESUS, then we can use it.

Any other meaning cannot be valid, for JESUS is the WAY.

John 14:6

King James Version

6 Jesus saith unto him, 

I am the way, 

the truth, 

and the life: 

no man cometh unto the Father, 

but by me.


Also, we cannot take the name of the Lord in vain.

Exodus 20:7

King James Version

7 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; 

for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.


If we attribute GRACE from GOD -- THROUGH Jesus -- then we will be happy to read the following verses, which explains what we mean when we say "by the grace of God".

Jeremiah 31:3

King James Version

3 The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, 

saying, 

Yea, 

I have loved thee with an everlasting love: 

therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.


John 3:16

King James Version

16 For God so loved the world, 

that he gave his only begotten Son, 

that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, 

but have everlasting life.


Matthew 28:18

King James Version

18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, 

saying, 

All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

O Lord,

9 Know therefore that the Lord thy God, 

he is God,

King James Version

10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: 

and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; 

but I laboured more abundantly than they all: 

yet not I, 

but the grace of God which was with me.

8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; 

and that not of yourselves: 

it is the gift of God:

9 Not of works, 

lest any man should boast.


Romans 11:6

King James Version

6 And if by grace, 

then is it no more of works: 

otherwise grace is no more grace

But if it be of works, 

then it is no more grace: 

otherwise work is no more work.

King James Version

7 How excellent is thy lovingkindness, 

O God! 

therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.

O Lord my God: 

O save me according to thy mercy:

for I am with thee

be not dismayed; 

for I am thy God

I will strengthen thee; 

yea, I will help thee; 

yea, 

I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.


James 4:6

Wherefore he saith, 

God resisteth the proud, 

but giveth grace unto the humble.

King James Version

that we may obtain mercy, 

and find grace to help in time of need.


2 Corinthians 12:9

My grace is sufficient for thee: 

for my strength is made perfect in weakness. 

Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, 

that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

great is thy faithfulness.

for ye are not under the law,

because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.


Romans 8:37-39

King James Version

37 Nay, 

in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

38 For I am persuaded, 

that neither death, 

nor life, 

nor angels, 

nor principalities, 

nor powers, 

nor things present, 

nor things to come,

39 Nor height, 

nor depth, 

nor any other creature, 

shall be able to separate us from the love of God, 

which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
