God’s grace was provided to us when he sent down his son. God’s grace was consummated when Jesus prayed at Gethsemane. God’s Grace was affirmed when Jesus stood before Pontius Pilot. God’s Grace was procured when Jesus carried that cross up to Calvary. God’s Grace was acquired when they nailed our Lord to the cross. God’s Grace was ascertained as Jesus asked for our foreignness as he died upon the cross. God’s Grace was proven as they laid his only begotten son in that borrowed tomb. But listen up folks! The story does not conclude there. The report does not terminate at this junction. There is more to this Grace thing that allows us a warranted guarantee. God’s Grace, which is extensive. God’s Grace that is consistent. God’s Grace that is constant. God’s Grace, which is continuous. God’s Grace, that is unmerited.

God’s Grace is sufficient enough to wipe away your transgressions and sins. God’s Grace is enough to remove that lust for that alcohol or drug high.

God’s Grace is sufficient!

He utilizes our failures to prepare us for our success. God’s
