Welcome to our service today. It is great to have you here and we would love to invite you to stay after the service and join us for tea and coffee.
What is grace? We often refer to the acronym God’s Riches At Christ’s Expense. Grace is God’s voluntary and loving favour given to those He saves. We can’t earn salvation and we don’t deserve it. No religious, intellectual or moral effort can gain it, because it comes only from God’s mercy and love. Without God’s grace, no person can be saved. To receive it, we must acknowledge that we cannot save ourselves, that only God can save us and that the only way to receive this loving favour is through faith in Christ.
We also need to have grace as believers for one another. Grace to accept that none of us are perfect. Grace to accept that we will all make mistakes that we need to learn from. Grace to admit when we are wrong. Grace to continue to ask God for help to be the people He is calling us to be. Grace is such a precious gift – given by the One who loves us so much He gave His one and only Son.
With love & blessings,
