If It Weren’t For Grace …

We can argue and twist words all we want but Scripture is clear that if not for God’s Grace and Mercy you would not have…

salvation.

believed.

had ears to hear the gospel, truly hear and understand with faith granted by God.

believed the words that you heard from Scripture.

even been exposed to the Scripture.

lived in a country that has free access to preaching and God’s Word.

lived in a free society that would allow you to hear God’s Word without being disowned or killed by family members.

We can go on.

If it weren’t for God’s Grace and Mercy…

You wouldn’t be breathing right now having this discussion.

You wouldn’t have the intelligence to read and write.

You wouldn’t have been born with ears that can hear, eyes that can see, mouth that can speak, hands that can type, or a brain that can think.

You wouldn’t have been afforded the opportunity to study and educate yourself.

You wouldn’t have survived growing up to this point.

You wouldn’t have had parents that choose to raise you as opposed to sell you for a slave.

You wouldn’t have been killed by many childhood diseases.

You wouldn’t have starved to death like many children.

You wouldn’t have had parents that allowed you to be born instead of aborting you.

You can think that you participated and that it was God plus something you did to deserve Salvation but if it weren’t totally for God’s Grace and Mercy you would not have done anything.

Reminds me of the song “Were It Not For Grace”

I measured out my days
Life carried me alone
In my soul I yearn to follow God
But knew I’d never be so strong
I looked hard at this world
To learn how heaven could be gained
Just to end where I began
Where human effort is all in vain

Were it not for grace
I can tell you where I’d be
Wandering down some pointless road
To no where
With my salvation up to me
I know how that would go
The battles I would face
Forever running
But losing the race
Were it not for grace

Give credit where credit is due.

To God and God alone!
