Grace is unmerited favour. It is a gift given to us that we’ve not worked for. In the Bible, we have various instances where the patriarchs of faith found favour and grace in the sight of God. Grace is always unmerited. It is an act of kindness and goodness shown to us by God.
Noah was the first person in the Bible recorded to have found favour in the sight of God. Though Noah was obedient to God’s command and was righteous, the grace God bestowed on him and his family was still unmerited. He didn’t work for it. God just singled him out for His glory and praise.
“Genesis 6:8 (KJV) But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.”
Despite the number of people living in the days of Noah, despite the number of people that could have been more intelligent and creative than Noah, God singled him out for favour. God will single you out for favour. Amen. God created an avenue for salvation for the life of Noah and his seven family members. Oh. What great grace!
Another individual who found grace in the sight of God was King David. He committed adultery and murder, yet he found grace in God’s sight. God called him a person after his own heart and established the messianic rule in his name. If you read the book of Psalms, you will discover hundreds of promises and covenants that God made concerning the house of David. These covenants will span through eternity. God didn’t make these promises because David was the most righteous man on earth, or the purest. No. He made them because David found great grace in the sight of God.
“Psalms 89:3-4 (KJV) I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant,
Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne to all generations. Selah.”
This Psalm 89:3-4 speaks so much of the profoundness of God’s promise to David. God intentionally swore to him to sustain his lineage forever. And that is manifested through Jesus Christ. What a great fulfilment.
The character of God is grace. There is not an iota of falsehood in this. God is eternally good and gracious.
“Exodus 34:6 (KJV) And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth”
His nature is gracious and he bestows unlimited grace on those who receive his Son Jesus. The promise of God to David is just the tip of an iceberg compared to what God has in stock for you. The Bible speaking of Jesus says,
“John 1:16 (KJV) And of his fullness have all we received, and grace for grace.”
Out of the fullness of Jesus, we have access to unlimited grace, unending grace, overflowing grace. The fullness of God’s grace cannot be exhausted in you as a believer. You have Christ in you, therefore, you have an uninterrupted access to never-ending, unmerited favour. Know this. Believe it!
If you are reading this post and you are interested in receiving God’s grace. I have good news for you today. The salvation that Jesus secured through his blood is also a product of grace. It is totally unmerited and free. You can enjoy it this moment. What you need to do is accept the finished works of Christ and welcome him into your heart.
“Revelation 3:20 (KJV) Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.”
Jesus is waiting at the door of your heart. He’s waiting to come in to dwell in you. We want you to say this prayer with faith and we believe grace will begin to shape your story in eternity.
Prayer of Salvation: Father, I am sorry for sinning against you. I am tired of sin and I want Jesus to come into my heart. I believe that Jesus died for me and you rose Him up from the grave. Starting from this moment, I want to enjoy limitless grace through the finished works of Christ. Amen.
Glory to God. Welcome to the family of God. Join a Bible believing church and continue growing in grace. God bless you.
