By Grace Ye Are Saved

"And you hath He quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. But God, who is rich in Mercy, for His Great Love wherewith He Loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (By Grace Ye Are Saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in Heavenly Places in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come He might shew the exceeding riches of His Grace in His Kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. for by Grace are ye Saved through Faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the Gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are His Workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto Good Works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:1-10 KJV

We look around at the chaos of evil which surrounds us and are set upon with loathing for the sins of others; so quickly prone to forget, that there, but for the Grace of God go I. If God’s Word had not wrought a miraculous Work of Grace in my heart, I would still be “dead in trespasses and sins for faith cometh by hearing…the Word of God.” If someone had not preached the Gospel to this wretch, I would still be foolishly chasing the illusions of lust! We pray for God to heal our land, forgetting the solution lies within our very souls! “The Gospel of Christ…is the Power of God unto Salvation to every one that believeth; for therein is the Righteousness of God revealed from Faith to Faith: as it is written, ‘The just shall live by Faith.” Our Hope and standing before God is the Word of God which brought terror at first and then the Blessed Assurance whereby we stand eternally forgiven by the “Just and Justifier of them who believe by Grace through Faith in the Word of God.” we must pause and ask ourselves, “Why do I believe? How do I believe? When did I believe?” When we answer those questions we will know the answer to the death and decay of sin which holds the world in its grasp! The Word of God!

Saved by the Blood of the Crucified One!
Now ransomed from sin and a new work begun,
Sing praise to the Father and praise to the Son,
Saved by the Blood of the Crucified One!
Saved by the Blood of the Crucified One!
The angels rejoicing because it is done;
A child of the Father, joint-heir with the Son,
Saved by the Blood of the Crucified One!
Saved by the Blood of the Crucified One!
The Father He spake, and His Will it was done;
Great Price of my pardon, His own precious Son;
Saved by the Blood of the Crucified One!
Saved by the Blood of the Crucified One!
All hail to the Father, all hail to the Son,
All hail to the Spirit, the great Three in One!
Saved by the Blood of the Crucified One!
Glory, I’m saved! Glory, I’m saved!
My sins are all pardoned, my guilt is all gone!
Glory, I’m saved! Glory, I’m saved!
I’m saved by the Blood of the Crucified One! –S. J. Henderson, 1902

God saw down through Eternity and foreknew your repentance and accepted you in Christ and predestined you to be His Child, forever by Grace through Faith. “For whosoever shall call upon the Name of the Lord shall be Saved. So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. Rescue the perishing!

“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, ‘All power is given unto Me in Heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have Commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” Matthew 28:18-20 KJV
