Grace of God
A FREE GIFT
receiving what you don’t deserve
Romans 5:8 The Passion Translation (TPT)
8 But Christ proved God’s passionate love for us by dying in our place while we were still lost and ungodly!
Ephesians 2:8-9 The Passion Translation (TPT)
8 For it was only through this wonderful grace that we believed in him. Nothing we did could ever earn this salvation, for it was the gracious gift from God that brought us to Christ! 9 So no one will ever be able to boast, for salvation is never a reward for good works or human striving.
John 1:16 The Passion Translation (TPT)
16 And now out of his fullness we are fulfilled!
And from him we receive grace heaped upon more grace!
Romans 5:20 The Passion Translation (TPT)
20 So then, the law was introduced into God’s plan to bring the reality of human sinfulness out of hiding. And yet, wherever sin increased, there was more than enough of God’s grace to triumph all the more!
Hebrews 4:16 The Passion Translation (TPT)
16 So now we come freely and boldly to where love is enthroned, to receive mercy’s kiss and discover the grace we urgently need to strengthen us in our time of weakness.
2 Timothy 2:1 The Passion Translation (TPT)
2 Timothy, my dear son, live your life empowered by God’s free-flowing grace, which is your true strength, found in the anointing of Jesus and your union with him!
Romans 6:1-4 The Passion Translation (TPT)
6 So what do we do, then? Do we persist in sin so that God’s kindness and grace will increase?
2 What a terrible thought! We have died to sin once and for all, as a dead man passes away from this life. So how could we live under sin’s rule a moment longer?
3 Or have you forgotten that all of us who were immersed into union with Jesus, the Anointed One, were immersed into union with his death?
4 Sharing in his death by our baptism means that we were co-buried and entombed with him, so that when the Father’s glory raised Christ from the dead, we were also raised with him. We have been co-resurrected with him so that we could be empowered to walk in the freshness of new life.
