For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that we should live soberly, righteously and godly in the present age. (Titus 2:11)
God’s grace does not come without requirements. It requires a change in lifestyle. Furthermore, that grace has been made evident to all. There will never be a person who will stand before the judgment seat of Christ and be able to say, “It is not my fault, you never told me.” I do not know how, where or when, but I do know that God’s grace is made available to every man, woman and child. The question is, “What are you going to do with that grace?” The book of Romans puts it this way, “Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it?” The grace of God grants us the ability to be conformed to the image of His Son, and empowers us with the ability to maintain it. What has God graced you to do? Whatever it is, it is to be done by faith. These must go hand in hand. There is no grace without faith and faith is valueless without God’s grace.
