Title: G – Grace: a Gift from God.
Tags: gospel, personal,
Blog Entry: I’ve been mulling over words for my ‘G’ blog, and these three words, Grace, God, and Gift kept coming back to mind, even during several sleepless nights. What can I write about something that is very dear to me, but may not be the same for others here on The Hill. I am not a gospel preacher, I don’t call myself a Christian (that word has been spoiled by and for too many people), but I am an avid follower of Jesus, God’s Son. I know that God loves me even more than I will ever understand, and that love was shown by God's grace... the undeserved gift of His Son who willing gave his life as a payment for our sins (we are ALL guilty). If you have read the “About Me” on my page, you will have already learned that about me. The following quote is from the modern translation of the Holy Bible, called ‘The Voice”. If you are not familiar with that, come to my page and follow the link to more more about it.   8-9  For it’s by God’s grace that y ou have been saved. You receive it through faith. It was not  our plan or  our effort. It is God’s gift ,  pure and simple.  You didn’t earn it,  not one of us did , so don’t go around bragging  that you must have done something amazing .  Ephesians 2:8, 9 (from “The Voice”)
