Titus 2:11. For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all people.

All religions except Christianity believe they approach God by their own merits. It is what they do and what they don’t do that brings them before their god. Christians know we, in our own strength cannot work our way into salvation. It is only possible through God’s grace in the death and ressurection of God’s Son, Jesus Christ. Grace also shows itself another way. When a child does something wrong the loving parents discipline the child. It is the same with God. When go our own way through comission or omission God disciplins us, allowing us to walk out our bad decisions because He loves us. In His loving grace He won’t let us stray to far as long as we choose to respond to His correction. Our question is when we reap the results of wrong choices do we get mad, frustrated or complain? Let us instead acknowledge the grace of God which lets us see the error of our choices as He lovingly bring us back into Him through His loving grace?
