What is grace?

Código VBTS-E0002-E

VIEW:418 DATA:2020-03-20

Grace came through Jesus Christ 1 , grace comes from the Greek "χάρις - charis", which involves, acceptance, benefit, thanksgiving, pleasure. So the term grace is linked to something of acceptance, or something of benefit. So we can determine a strand that the benefit came through Jesus Christ. Now we know that the truth came through Jesus Christ 1 , now the truth is the real meaning of things and an understanding of what is right or wrong.

So we have that truth and grace comes through Christ 1 . Grace is not synonymous with gratuitous, but justification is given freely, by its grace 3 , what grace? God's pleasure over Christ Jesus. So grace is the joy, the contentment, that God has over Jesus Christ.

Let's look at two factors, first the law was given by Moses 1 , is the law Moses? No, the law is not Moses, God gave the law to Moses, but we speak the law of Moses 4 . So we have that grace and truth came through Christ Jesus 1 . Again we must understand that the gift is by grace 5 , grace is not a gift.

For example we can find "he will enter the Kingdom of Heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in Heaven ." 6 , that is, only those who do the will of the Father who will enter Heaven. In other words, grace is not given to those who do not do the Father's will.

So we have another term " to manifest your righteousness, because God, in his tolerance, left previously sins unpunished " 3 , in this phrase we find the term "sin", "impunity", "previously". Now before what? Pray before the knowledge of the work of Christ. It also refers to sin, and what is sin? Now "sin is the transgression of the Law" 7 . Now such an effect of grace is only effective for one who decides not to practice sins again. For " letting sins previously committed go unpunished " 3. Notably the law remains as long as forgiveness involves previously committed sins. Now it is clear, therefore, that the sin committed by not accepting the will of God makes man not to go to the Kingdom of Heaven, "he will enter the Kingdom of Heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in Heaven ." 6 , now the Father's will is not for man to sin.

What we have is that God has grace in Christ, and gives Christ freely to choose who should be saved.
