The Power of God's Grace and His Mercy.
Text Rm (5:20 b-21) "But where sin abounded, grace abounded on, So that, as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord '
More where sin abounded, grace of God. Sin entered the world through one man and portoda humanity spread from generation to generation. (Rom 5: 12) "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men because all sinned" After Adam sinned, he and his descendants only could generate sinners, so that all men are under a death sentence, the penalty of sin. (Rom 5: 18-19) "18 - For as by one man's offense judgment came upon all men to condemnation, even so through one act of righteousness was to grace upon all men unto justification of life . 19 - For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of one (Jesus Christ) many be made righteous "This righteousness came by the grace of God to mankind. In recent days, we have heard much about salvation, about the term: (Born again) Nevertheless, the experience of the new birth and the doctrines of salvation depend on certain basic concepts that are often misunderstood. In this post I want to talk about the agent of salvation, ie: one who provided the grace for all humanity.
Prepared Salvation of Man
Who prepared salvation for man? The salvation of man was prepared by God the Father (Luke 2: 25-32) "25 - There was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon, and this man was righteous and devout, awaiting the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him. 26 - And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before seeing the Lord's Christ. 27 - And the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law, 28 - He then took him in his arms, and blessed God, and said: 29 - Now, Lord dismisses your servant in peace, according to thy word; 30 - For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, 31 - Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people; 32 - Light to lighten the Gentiles, And the glory of thy people Israel "Simeon declared that he could die in peace, because you look at my saw and beheld the salvation he was pleased, because now, grace had been revealed and manifested to all mankind. God sending his only Son into the world, He proved that He loves you!!
SAVING GRACE OF GOD IS DERIVED
What is the grace of God? Grace is simply the unmerited favor. None of us are worthy of nothing. So salvation it is the goodness of God. Through grace, God revealed to the world a great favor to people who are not worthy. People who live in sin are worthy of that? They are deserving of judgment, condemnation and punishment, eternal punishment. They do not deserve forgiveness for their disobedience to God. And then we see the BIG FAVOR OF GOD! God to REVEAL JESUS THE WORLD, For everyone who lived in SIN, not given what it was all we deserved condemnation, suffering, punishment and death. Unlike this, God gave us life and life with much abundance ... God, He gave His own Son to die in my place and ... Instead of all mankind ... Jesus came to save us from eternal damnation ... Jesus came to us free from the yoke of sin and death. This means: SAVING GRACE ... Hallelujah!! You who are living away from the ways of the Lord. Perhaps you're thinking that you do not exist for most solution! Maybe this time you are thinking of taking his own life, thinking that this will be the best way to solve your problem. Still, you've arrived at the bottom, I want to declare the power of the anointing of the Lord Jesus that you are a very special person to the Lord Jesus ... God sent Jesus to rescue you from sin in this life you are living. God through grace, He will not give us what we deserve is punishment, punishment and eternal judgment ... More was through the great LOVE of God to mankind, that he sent his only Son to die in our place, because no we had conditions of paying the debt. Even the world living in sin, even men leading a life of wickedness, reject the holiness of God, yet God has purposed in his heart to rescue humanity which He created. Look my dear, you're still living in this situation, God loves you, and he is offering you his grace and mercy. God wants to set you free and make you a new creature, redeemed and washed in the blood of the lamb. Accepted the Lord Jesus as their savior, Jesus ceases to be part of your life ... And you'll see that this desire to die this death wish, this desire of wanting to take his own life ... No more dominated in his being ... This is what the enemy wants you to think ... The devil wants you to think that God does not love you is a loser who does not exist anymore for you solution, then he puts in his mind that the only way to resolve and solve your problems is that you think there is more reason to live with it and seek the death would be the best solution for your life. Do not think so! The only way you can solve your problem is you receive the grace of Jesus in your life ... Satan wants to destroy all their dreams, plans, design and especially with your life. More is not necessary for you to continue in this same situation ... Today, you can take a big step to change the whole story of his life ... With just a gesture ... Raise your hand and declare this hour: I WANT TO GIVE MY LIFE IN THE HANDS LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST!! So you admit that you accepted Jesus as your one and only savior, at the same time the GRACE OF THE LORD will invade the inside and you will feel a peace in your heart, your strength will be reinvigorated , and you'll have a new life expectancy. By GRACE God, the Lord will forgive all your SINS AND heals you ... And all convictions that existed on your life, no longer exist ... Because BLOOD OF JESUS HAS ALL POWER TO PURIFY INIQUITY. (Rom. 8: 1) "now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus" Enough to live on the sentencing, the hour of triumph in his life ... Believe you will win in Jesus name ... After Jesus died on CROSS OF CALVARY and in my place, and suffered the punishment for the sins of mankind, all those who arrive at the feet of the Lord Jesus, and surrenders her life to the Lord, God will look as if you had never sinned, know why What? Why BLOOD OF JESUS I washed, purified you and redeemed you from all your sins, and all your iniquities ... This is the true grace which the Lord God has to offer. Forgiveness for their sins ... The act of forgiveness is the ultimate expression of God's grace.
THE BENEFITS OF THE GRACE OF GOD AND HIS MERCY
1 - In God's mercy He does not deserve that. Praise God for his great mercy ... Look, if God were to give us what we deserved, we would probably mean that every convicted, punished and suffer judgment. So the Lord's mercy, He gives what we deserve. And what a person deserves when they are living in sin? Deserves punishment, punishment and judgment, ie: The eternal damnation. So it was thanks to Mercy of God that He will not give us what we deserve. DES the moment we accept the GRACE revealed to us through the CROSS JESUS. The world is completely immersed in sin, He who lives on the regime of this world, is destined to suffer and suffer for ever and ever. For all those who live on the regime of slavery in this world, must seek and cry out for God's mercy. Look what the apostle Peter wrote. (Pe 1:3-5) "3 - Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 - to an inheritance incorruptible, undefiled, unfading, reserved in heaven for you, 5 - suns that kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time "Oh Glory! It was through the MERCY OF GOD that He regenerated us that He RECONCILED for yourself. Today you can be SURE, today you can have HOPE that better days will come upon your life, GRACE AND GOD'S MERCY. Through the mercy of God, He gives us today an inheritance incorruptible! That is: What ever be over with time. A HERITAGE without blemish, that will never be tainted by evil. And HERITAGE unfading, not wither nor their LOSE VALUE with TIME. The world was destined to die in sin. Certainly would all be condemned and suffer the punishment of eternal judgment. Thank God that through his MISERICÓRIA, He will not give us what we deserve.
2 - In the grace of God, He gives us what we deserve. If not for the intermediate GRACE OF GOD, we would never be saved!! In grace means that God does not excuse the sinner. It does not mean that God covers or hides the sin of man. More on GRACE that God REVEALED THE DUMB (JESUS) He PERDOAos sins of man and all his transcreções PAID, all his wickedness, all his iniquities. Ie: when a person accepts the GRACE that God revealed to the world, she passes the stage of sin and death, to the stage of eternal life with our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. For all those who are living in SIN, your fate will be the punishment of eternal judgment, because the wages of pedado is DEATH. (Rom. 6. 23) "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord" Querofalar you that living in this pecada so that you are separated from God, even you, who was once a servant or handmaid of the Lord Jesus and today is completely destroyed with your life, with your life in complete ruin, demoralized by the company, being a servant of the devil. As you are living in this situation, the fate that is in store for you is DEATH, not saying this physical death, but rather, the SPIRITUAL DEATH! ETERNAL DEATH ... Separated forever in a place of suffering ETERNAL that will never end. Stop right now and think about the wonderful things the Lord has in store for those who remain faithful, for all those who want to receive a new chance to change the destiny of your life. We're not deserve any of this!! More grace was the mercy of God revealed to us in Christ Jesus our Lord that we now have the opportunity to receive salvation in our lives. The Bible speaks of the gift of God. The gift is not our merit, plus the gift is something we receive from the Lord a tool that He gives us to pursue the work he has to perform through each of us for his glory. I want to tell you that life is not conquering sanctification eternal life to anyone! Eternal life is still a godsend. God can not help but apply his righteousness and judgment against sin. The sacrifice of Christ on Calvary, however, fully satisfied the divine justice. The price for breaking the law was paid this way. GRACE, porting, does not pass over sin but removes it completely. My friend and my friend, that you're living a dissolute life, that you're living a life of sin, know that even now God has used kindness to you because he's not giving you what you deserve this. Why, when we are in sin, we deserve judgment and condemnation. More thank God that through His mercy He gives what we all deserve. The grace comes from God, because He is the source. The grace of the Lord in her fault, and because of his support extends to every person. In Christ we have the full revelation of God's saving grace and that only he can receive the SAVING GRACE. (Titus 3:3-7) "3 - For us too, once we were foolish, disobedient, astray, slaves to all kinds of passions and pleasures, living in malice, envy, hateful, and hating one another. 4 - When, however, if the kindness of God our Savior and his love toward man, 5 - not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us through the washing and renewing of regenerated Holy Spirit, 6 - saber he poured us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Lord, 7 - so that, justified by GRACE, we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life "The Apostle Paul in this epistle Titus he wrote in verse three: When we were once foolish ... What comes to be a foolish person? A foolish person is a person without education, without consistency, without jurisdiction, ignorant, stupid, and incapable etc ... All those who are living in sin are related and co-related in these conditions and need to open their eyes to enxergarem that our wisdom it is misleading to our hearts. Paul is also saying that even a person living in disobedience and being a slave of all sorts and worldly passions, there a means by which this person to enjoy a life completely transformed, redeemed and washed in the blood of the Lamb of God who takes away the whole man's sin. It was through Grace that we have all become HEIRS according to the hope of ETERNAL LIFE. By Grace you can believe that brighter days are ahead for all those who have been saved and invested by GRACE THE LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.
WE ARE TWO TYPES OF BENEFIT BY GRACE, GRACE SAVING GRACE AND COMMON
1 - Common Grace. Common grace it is manifested both for people who Serve God, and for people who do not serve God, those who live in sin. God through his kindness in dealing with people, through common grace, it helps save people from evil deeds and animates them to do what is good. Common grace helps and empowers people to live a decent way. Common grace is provided by God as a blessing to be poured over the natural world. The rains, the fruitful seasons, and food are some forms of this common grace that God pours over the world for the benefit of all mankind. Common grace it is not enough to save someone. More it is enough to give a dignified and prosperous for all of us. Common grace opens our understanding to understand and realize that God is providence all things. Common grace makes man can answer yes to God. But the saving grace is that leads people to Christ. (John 6:44) "No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day" So you can see that for a person to be saved and come to Jesus, she must receive FREE SAVING! need to accept Jesus as seuSALVADOR STAFF.
2 - The Saving Grace. It renews the heart of man, it restores the sinner to a holy life, it frees the sinner from the bondage of sin and death. The saving grace it is clearly manifested in the person of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The saving grace she came into the world through Jesus Christ. (John 1:17) "For the law given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ" Even if you are living a life of abundance, while not missing anything for you. Maybe you can weigh this: Why do I need Jesus? I have everything I want, I have everything I need! Not this I missing anything! Why then do I need Jesus? Yes! Okay ... Do you know why you have everything? Grace common grace of God, because it is through common grace that God blesses your life, not only for its ... More common grace of God blesses both the wicked and the righteous. More ... You can have common grace, the more you should know if you do not have to SAVING GRACE, nothing will advance you have all the riches of this world, if the principal is lacking in your life that is SAVING GRACE. So accept Jesus, because he has a lot more than riches to offer.
Christ's atoning WORK IN GRANTS TO SALVATION
To understand the nature of salvation, one must understand the atonement. The word atonement gives the idea of reconciling enemies. Refers to a change of the state of social life to the state of true friendship. In salvation, this word refers to the action by which the sinner is reconciled to God. Another meaning of atonement is cancel or cover. As a result of the sacrifice of Christ, when He suffered and died for us, people's sins are covered by His blood and the punishment of his sin is canceled. To understand the importance of atonement in the plan of salvation, think about this.
A father and his son had a violent argument. As a result, the child left home, vowing never to return to his father when he lived there. The mother suffered terribly because both loved very much. After many months, the child received an urgent message, saying that he should return home soon, because his mother was seriously ill and could die. The son entered the hospital room and saw his mother lying pale and dying in bed. Father and son watched in silence the loved one, knowing he was close to death. Using the last strength she had, her mother raised her hand and took her husband. With her other hand she took the child. Joining the two in a final act of love, the hands of the father and son in his chest. That's how she died. When Jesus Christ died on the cross he joined the sinful man to a holy God. Atonement means a grand gesture of love to join something that was previously separated. It was through the atonement that Jesus united humanity that was living in sin and therefore was separated from the communion of our God. Sin separates man from God. God loves the sinner, hates the sin most. There is to have unity of God's holiness, with the sinful life and devastates humanity. Most everyone who wants to be accepted and to receive full communion with God, just accept the Lord Jesus. Through Jesus we are united again to the love of our Father through Jesus' death on the price of our sin was paid. In Christ all the requirements of justice were completed. It was through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross that man was freed from the power of the guilt of sin, and restored to fellowship with God. The scriptures clearly show that the reference was necessary.
1 - The holiness of God can not tolerate sin. (Ex. 34: 6-7) "6 - And The Lord passed by before him, cried out, 'Lord, Lord God, merciful and longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, 7 -, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, yet that does not clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and upon the children's children unto the third and fourth generation "We see then, that sin must be covered or canceled. (Romans 3: 25-26) "25 - Whom God hath set in his blood as propitiation, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because God in his forbearance he had passed over the sins previously committed; 26 - in view of the manifestation of His righteousness at the present time, that He might be just and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus "can mean Propitiation: Place of propitiation, ie, as in the mercy seat (Hebrews 9:5)" And upon her the cherubim of glory, with his shadow, covering the mercy seat "Christ is portrayed as the mercy seat (the lid of the ark of the covenant) in which they were satisfied the righteous requirements of God for sins previously committed. The death of Christ also fully paid the sins committed before their coming. For he might be just and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. Because of the death of Christ, God can declare righteous those who trust in Jesus. So you already know that the only way to reach God is through Jesus' atoning sacrifice. When you accept Jesus, then you are declared righteous before God. Jesus came to this world with the certainty that he would sacrifice made on the cross of Calvary mermaid not in vain. Jesus need not have gone through what he went through. Most do not know why he quit? In that hour Jesus looked at all the need of humanity and the Lord Jesus on that cross through the blood of Jesus that was shed for us all, opened to all mankind a LIVING HOPE. Through the atonement of Christ, OUR DEBT HAS BEEN PAID. Today you and I and all who will receive this wonderful heritage that Jesus gave us, just accept the Lord Jesus and remain steadfast to the end, he will give you the crown of ETERNAL LIFE. The sacrifice of Jesus includes everything he did to provide our salvation. The sacrifice of Jesus covers the sins of man and fills the need created by our guilt. (Eph 5:2) "Christ loved us and gave himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet savor" Jesus paid the debt we could never pay. He erased our past, what we could not do. He is our sacrifice, because his death is an act of perfect self-surrender. This unique sacrifice of Christ was sufficient to avert the wrath of God and to take all barriers between God and man. (Heb 9:28) "So Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time without sin, to those who are waiting for salvation" We will await with great faith and expectation that glorious days. Do not get you out, you do not need to lose this opportunity. The hardest thing has been done, the Lord had been indulging in our place to die the death of the cross. Now just only a gesture, just only you make a decision. Raise your hand and accept Jesus into your life, let the Lord direct his steps. If you do not know what else to do ... Just put your life in the hands of the Lord, trust also in Him, and he will do everything.
GOD HAS PREPARED FOR SALVATION RESCUE HUMANITY LIVING IN SIN
The salvation of man meets the need. As a Christian, we have a responsibility to share the good news with everyone. But to show how salvation meets the needs we need to know what they are.
Each person and two Sinful Ways
1 - born in sin. The sin of the first man Adam fell on all, because it represented the human race (Romans 5:12) "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death passed upon all men because all sinned "See a need because we all need to receive salvation in our lives. We inherited Adam's sin, and with it, all are sentenced to death sentence. More was by the mercy of God and His immense grace which today we all find in Jesus Christ, not a death sentence, a sentence of more LIFE. Sin left by the inheritance of Adam's void in our lives, when we accept the Lord Jesus as our savior. So the punishment was in store for me and you, was canceled and paid on the cross by Jesus. As we are all born in sin, separated from God, and we can not by ourselves to change this state, God, save us, we need to send someone who had not sinned. That's why He sent Jesus, His only Son, to be both God and man at the same time, never committed sin. Then Jesus comes to earth to die on the cross for our sin nature to die with Him Through His death we have our debt paid to God. And not only that. Also thanks to God the Father, Jesus was not in death, but rose again to give a new life to all those who believe in him. Jesus, in his death and resurrection, paid our debt. For the quitasse It was necessary to spill his blood and die on the cross. The Bible then says that his blood cleanses us from all our sins: (1 John 1: 7-9) "7 - But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. 8 - If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9 - If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness "See that here there is a condition!! (If we confess our sins), (John 3:16-18) "16 - God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 - So, God sent his Son into the world to condemn the world but that the world might be saved through him. 18 - He who believes in the Son is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already because he has not believed in the only Son of God "Look, it's no use ... To get our debt paid caught, one must believe and accept Jesus' sacrifice . For Christ paying our debt cost his suffering, his death and his blood. But for us, this payment and for FREE!! Simply believe, as the very word of God says in (Eph 2:8-9) "8-For by grace you are saved through faith, that not of yourselves, it is a gift given by God.9 - Salvation is not the result of the efforts of you, so no one can boast of having her "When Jesus died on the cross, his act of dying did LOVE the nature of sin that was in us. It was in this way that Jesus paid our debt. When He rose from the dead, He gave us new life. A life with which we can now relate to God the Father
2 - You chose to live in sin by doing what is evil. In addition to inherit the sin of Adam, men are also responsible for their own actions, because, quite choose to live in sin. Many chose to do that which is evil ... Much prefer to live without rules, meeting with all the sinful desires of the flesh. That is: The will of man is enslaved to sin. Paul says: (Romans 8:7-8) "7 - So the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. 8 - So, those who are in the flesh can not please God "So the two needs that we need to understand to help other people is that The Man is born in sin, because we inherited a sinful nature from Adam. So when the man chose to live in sin, to make this choice, he chose to do what was and what is evil. In both forms the only remedy for man to be cured is: GET BLOOD PURIFIER OF JESUS IN YOUR LIFE. (1 Jo1: 7) "If we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin" The blood of Christ has power to purify . Never men will find the purification of sin apart from the blood. There is no other way to be washed from sin, except the blood of Jesus. The Bible tells us that there is no other way to cleanse sin. The prophet Jeremiah said: (Jer. 2:22) "Though we bathe with saltpetre, potash amontoássemos still continue to taint our wickedness before God" There is no doubt! Only the blood of Jesus from the power washing and cleansing with all stains of sin. The key to our hope is in Jesus' hands. Among his life to the Lord. No matter what kind of life you are leading. No matter what kind of sin you have ever committed. Whatever, there is a God who has the power to forgive all your sins. For this condition exists: (2 Chronicles 7:14-16) "14 - If my people, which are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven , will forgive their sin and heal their land. 15 - my eyes will be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place. 16 - Because I chosen and sanctified this house, that my name may be there forever, there are mine eyes and mine heart every day, "If you want to receive the forgiveness of Jesus and have peace in your heart, humbles himself before the Lord raises a cry ... Pray to the Lord confessing their sins and iniquities. Convert from their wicked ways, then will the Lord hear thee, he will forgive their sin and will healed their land, and his ears are open to hear their cry. God will be with their eyes fixed on the alert and your life to bless you, and make a permanent home in your heart. Not leaves after ... Change the destiny of your life right now ... JESUS IS WAITING FOR YOU OPEN ARMS.
Not all is lost, there is still a solution. And you will find the grace and mercy of God for your life. But where sin abounded, grace abounded on, So that, as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Jesus loves you even if you are living in sin he loves. Most know that he died on the cross to redeem you from the power of death. No matter the size, the degree or intensity of their sins. For God there is no sin or little sin great. To God all things are sin. More we try to understand the dimensions of our sinful acts, we compare this little sin or big sin in degree and intensity. Whatever their sins. THE BLOOD OF JESUS HAS POWER TO FORGIVE YOU FOR ALL YOUR SINS.
May God bless you in the Name of Jesus Christ.
This is the wish of your friend in Christ Pastor Valni Borges
