Today I want to talk about Grace. Grace is a terribly misunderstood word and defining it sufficiently is notoriously difficult. Some of the most detailed theology textbooks do not offer any concise definition of the term. One of the best-known definitions of grace is; only three words: God's unmerited favor.

A. W. Tozer expanded on that idea by saying, "Grace is the good pleasure of God that inclines him to bestow benefits on the undeserving." Berkhof is more to the point when he says' grace is, "The unmerited operation of God in the heart of man, effected through the agency of the Holy Spirit."

The key word in what these great minds have said is this, "unmerited" - grace, my friends, is completely undeserved and therefore it leads to the conclusion that grace is a free gift given to us by God through Christ.

John Hicks, an evangelist I heard recently speak about grace said, "It is by grace we have been saved, through faith" (Ephesians 2.8). We can be redeemed and made righteous through faith in Jesus.

In Galatians chapter 3, we come to the heart of the matter that Paul has been referring to up to this point in His letter to the Galatians: The conflict between two alternate roads to righteousness...Trusting and Trying. How does one please God? What makes a person truly a Christian? Trying to act in a way that seems pure and Godly or trusting in a Savior who paid the price for sin? The question is really a trick one. No matter how hard we try, we cannot be good enough. It is only by trusting in Jesus that we find salvation. That is Grace.

Let me encourage you today, if you have been "trying," then stop. Simply let go and trust in him. You will be amazed at what he can do for you. It's not in following the rules that make us right with him, but when we make the decision to trust in him we find that we are happy to do anything he asks.
