The power of grace is its ability to overcome sin. No sin in your life is bigger than God’s mercy and grace. No sin is bigger than Jesus Christ’s sacrifice for sin. Look at these amazing verses:
“Your sins are forgiven” (Matthew 9:2).
“…whoever believes in [Jesus] will receive remission of sins” (Acts 10:43).
“…through this Man is preached to you the forgiveness of sins” (Acts 13:38).
“In [Jesus] we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace” (Ephesians 1:7).
“…God in Christ forgave you” (Ephesians 4:32). “…we have redemption through [Jesus’] blood, the forgiveness of sins” (Colossians 1:14). “…your sins are forgiven you for His name’s sake” (1 John 2:12). Are you getting the message? Your sins are forgiven!
Martin Luther wrote, “Either sin is with you, lying on your shoulders, or it is lying on Christ, the Lamb of God. Now if it is lying on your back, you are lost; but if it is resting on Christ, you are free, and you will be saved. Now choose what you want.”
Fred Price said, “You’re not a sinner saved by grace. You’re either a sinner or you’re saved by grace. You can’t be both.”
Am I a sinner? My actions, thoughts, and motives are often contrary to God’s laws. Yet in God’s eyes, I am a new creation, perfect in Christ Jesus. How can this be? The answer is grace.
