The Gospel is through His grace – Part 1 –

Galatians 1:3-5…Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ,

The words grace and peace are more than a greeting, although they were commonly used in greeting people in those times. Paul reminded Disciples that God’s grace through Jesus was the source of their salvation. Paul contended that salvation came solely through grace by faith in Jesus. Grace is “God’s unmerited favor”— favor He freely gives undeserving people. It includes kindness, goodwill, and generosity.  We do not deserve His gift of salvation, and we cannot earn it, He gives it to those who believe in Jesus.

Peace is more than the absence of conflict or difficulty. Peace includes the thoughts of health, wholeness, security, contentment, satisfaction, spiritual health and well-being—everything that makes for a person’s good under God’s rule.

The sources of grace and peace are God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Henry Luke
