Summary: Talking about the grace God gives each one of us. "The Grace Factor"
THE GRACE FACTOR
As we start this sermon of this morning. I want us to understand that in order for us to make it in this world we must have God’s grace. The grace of God is what woke each and everyone of us up this morning. For this very reason we are forever indebted to the Lord. I don’t know about you but if it had not been for the grace of God. I would not be able to make it through life’s ups and downs.
The world in which we live in is full of heart aces and pains. But by the grace of our blessed Savior we have victory. There is nothing to hard for my God to handle. I don’t care my sister and brothers what it is. God grace is there to carry us through. His grace is everlasting!
So therefore, allow me to talk about “The Grace Factor”.
Ephesians Ch2Vv8 says “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God”. This lets us know that no one can be save unless it is by the grace of God. The very act of Gods grace is what enables mankind the chance to be saved form the pits of hell. But we also know we must have faith in the Lord in order that his grace my even began to work in our lives. “For His word says, that we are saved by Grace through faith!” We must understand that the grace of God is a gift and can not be earned like a paycheck on a job. God gives us His grace because He loves us no matter who we are. But it is up to us whether or not if we will accept His love or not. God will never force Himself on no one but He stands there always ready to pick up the pieces. Look at someone and tell them that’s “The Grace Factor!”
This is why I believe the song writer wrote these words “ Amazing Grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me” This writer was recognizing that his life was in pieces and it was only by the grace of God that the pieces could be picked up. To me that’s why it was sweet sounding because it is good to be able to heard the voice of the Lord saying “Low I’m with you always even until the end of time!” Oh, I am talking about “The Grace Factor!”
It is good to know that we serve a God that has grace that it is good for all situations. I would have you to know this morning that God’s grace reaches from here to everlasting. There is no ending for God’s grace.
Just on this past Sunday my cousin have a wreck on his motorcycle. It threw him forty feet from the accident. In this wreck 3 people die. One in which was a five year old child but my cousin lived. Yes, he has a lot of broken bones but he is still alive. Some people try to say because he was a heavy set man. That help save him. But just on this past Friday afternoon me and him knew that it was because of “The Grace Factor!” That he is still here today! It was God’s grace that kept him and it is the same grace that will kept us.
No matter what you are up against, God’s grace will see you through. I am glad that God gave us “The Grace Factor!” The grace of God will supply all your needs. In order for you to really understand “The Grace Factor!” this morning you have got to try God’s grace. We need to learn that we must lean and depend on God for everything. We must test out the grace of God. If we don’t never test the grace of God. If don’t never put it to work in our lives we will never know if it works. God wants each and everyone of us to try his “Amazing Grace”.
I truly believe this morning that no matter if you are a Christian or a sinner. You only make it through each day by the grace of God. But the only difference is, as a sinner a person is never willing to acknowledge or admit that it was God’s grace that has brought them. We as Christian on the other hand know that it was only by the grace of God that, not only brought us but also saved us. So therefore we have a job to do! That is to tell the dieing world about God and His great grace giving to us through His Son Jesus Christ.
