This Christian tract may be freely copied and distributed to bless others.Grace is a free gift from God. It can not be earned or purchased with your works or wealth. Jesus Christ paid the penalty for you by his death, that sin requires. Grace doesn't come from your works, or from you. It is received by faith in what Jesus Christ already did and paid for you. "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." Ephesians 2:8-9. Do not try to earn Salvation by your works which only shows pride. It is impossible to repay what Christ has done. Be a good receiver of this free gift, always glorifying God, and giving God thanks. Many people find it hard to receive grace from God through Jesus Christ, because they do not properly know how to love or how to receive love. The enemy fights you at an early age to distort the meaning of love, so you do not receive God's Ultimate Expression Of Love, and instead receive rejection, guilt, shame, and condemnation that your sins require, when you have rejected Christ's Great Sacrifice. You will either live under grace or under law. You get to choose either God's Grace, or the penalty of the law. The law condemns you to damnation, but God's Grace through Jesus frees you and will give you eternal life. See Deuteronomy 30:19-20. Ask God for a revelation of His Love. Once you receive His Love, share it with others. "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" Romans 3:23. God so loved you, that He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to shed His Blood for your sins. Jesus desires you to "...repent ye, and believe the gospel." Mark 1:15. Repent, turn away from your sins. Believe on Jesus Christ. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16. Believe in Jesus, confessing Him as your Lord. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." Romans 10:9. Identify with Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection through Baptism. Glorify God by walking in love faithfully following after Jesus.
