God’s Amazing Grace!

Jesus did not come to simply make bad people good; Jesus comes to make dead people ALIVE!!!

The ultimate blessing of God’s amazing offer of making us part of His forever family by grace through faith is that we are spiritually and eternally transferred out of the kingdom of death and into Christ’s kingdom of eternal life. Jesus explained His astonishing kindness, “He who hears My Word and believes Him who sent Me, has ETERNAL LIFE, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.” (John 5:24) Amazing! So life does not begin at 40 but real life begins when you embrace God’s offer of grace.

Humanity’s greatest problem consists of the spiritual fact that, “you were DEAD in your trespasses and sins.” (Ephesians 2:1) If you encountered a dead seagull on the beach, more education, better food, encouraging words or a new environment would not help the expired creature. The dead bird does not need a new leaf but a new life!

Jesus did not come to simply make bad people good; Jesus comes to make dead people ALIVE. Jairus ran to Jesus and solicited the Savior’s help for his dying daughter. Apparently, Jesus arrived too late because the mourners were grieving her loss. The death-conquering Savior took the child’s hand and proclaimed, “’Talitha kum’ which means ‘child arise’ and immediately the girl got up.” (Mark 5:41-42) Jesus raised up the Widow of Nain’s dead son. Jesus raised up Lazarus, who was stone-cold dead for four day. Yet these Biblical miracles are no greater than an eight year old child trusting Christ and moving from spiritually dead to eternally ALIVE!

So receive, stand on and share God’s good news of Amazing Grace: “We were DEAD in our sins but God made us ALIVE in Christ, by His grace, and raised us up with Him!” (Ephesians 2:5-6)
