TO EACH ONE OF US GRACE WAS GIVEN ACCORDING TO THE MEASURE OF CHRIST’S GIFT.
(EPHESIANS 4:7 *NKJV)

Dear Friend,
We have all heard the Hymn “Amazing Grace,”but did you ever wonder what the word “grace” meant in the Bible? Well “grace” in the New Testament is the Greek word [charis] which means underserved acceptance or favor, as well as, love received from another.

Now let us look at the Grace of God and what it means to each one of us. It is written; FOR BY GRACE YOU HAVE BEEN SAVED THROUGH FAITH, AND THAT NOT OF YOURSELVES; IT IS A GIFT OF GOD. (EPHESIANS 2:8)

Also the same Grace protects us, comforts us, and guides us as well, so; LET US THEREFORE COME BOLDLY TO THE THRONE OF GRACE, THAT WE MAY OBTAIN MERCY AND FIND GRACE TO HELP IN TIME OF NEED. (HEBREWS 4:16)

Further, God’s Great Love comes to us through His; Grace; AND WE HAVE KNOWN AND BELIEVED THE LOVE THAT GOD HAS FOR US. GOD IS LOVE, AND HE WHO ABIDES IN LOVE ABIDES IN GOD, AND GOD IN HIM. For after all; WE LOVE HIM BECAUSE HE FIRST LOVED US. (1 JOHN 4:16 & 19)

So Friend, my prayer for you is to; GROW IN THE GRACE AND KNOWLEDGE OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST. TO HIM BE THE GLORY BOTH NOW AND FOREVER. AMEN
(2 PETER 3:18)

With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
