That Which is Freely Given to Us By God (1)
- The Bible often uses the words "gift", "give”, "grace* and "free* to remind us that there are many things which are freely given to us by God. Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. Romans 3:24
- The Love of God is an action. The product of this activity of God is what the Bible calls "grace". The grace of God is free — we cannot merit these gifts of grace — we can only receive them in gratitude and repentance and by faith.
- Some of these free gifts of grace relate to our salvation and some to the daily life. The former are the basis of assurance and the latter need to be received and implemented daily.
