By Grace Alone We are Saved By Joseph Chambers

The Grace of God revealed in Jesus Christ is indeed the theme of all of God’s infallible Word. We are saved by grace and there is no secondary method of salvation. We are either saved by grace or eternally lost and condemned to the Lake of Fire. But Grace has taken on an evolution in today’s church. The truth is that grace is not a covering for our sins, it is a cleansing from our sins. Christ did not come to patch up the filthy sinners but to convert them into sons and daughters in his holy family. Much of the church world has been reduced from “Saints saved by grace” to “Sinners saved by grace.” This very thought is anti-Biblical and contrary to every truth about our salvation. It defies every word of God’s Holy Book.

This idea of “Sinners saved by Grace” is nothing but the accommodation of sin. Our sinner-friendly church world has changed the “strait gate that leads to eternal life” to a “broad gate that leads to a religious life.” It may populate our churches, but it will also populate the Lake of Fire. The Book of Romans is heralded as the great Book of “Salvation by Grace” and so it is. The Romans Road to Salvation is the message we all should proclaim. This book teaches that sinners are transformed by the Grace of God. “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?” (Romans 6:1-3).

The “Born Again” believer has no appetite for sin. If you still have an appetite for adultery, fornication, lying, jealousy, bitterness, or any sin identified in Scripture, be honest with yourself and cry out to God for His transforming power in your life. The supernatural power of Christ’s blood will be manifest by the Spirit at your full surrender to Him. He will make you an absolutely transformed individual. Sin will be repulsive to you and, if you fall into error, your heart will rush to the cross for cleansing. Apostle John said it plainly, “My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world” (I John 2:1-2)

This ministry is sustained by our friends and partners.

A young believer is not evident by their perfection but by their hatred of the old life and their tender heart to repent immediately. Such a young saint will grow and glow in this sincere grace of Jesus Christ and will soon be a towering pillar in the House of God. They will learn quickly that to whom you yield yourself servant to obey His/his servant you are. “Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness” (Romans 6:16-18)

This Biblical standard of “New Life” in Christ is the desperate need of today’s society. Jesus Christ by His Holy Spirit, wants to raise you up unto holiness and power and to show you as His example in the world. He will make an epistle out of you known and read of all men. (II Corinthians 3:2). He will light up your countenance and beautify you with His salvation (Psalms 149:4). Again, Romans says it powerfully, “But if the Spirit (Holy Spirit) of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you” (Romans 8:11)The Holy Ghost is the Spirit of Holiness. He takes all of Jesus and make application of Him in your life.

Holy Ghost activity in a supernatural dimension will follow a life totally transformed by the “Grace” of Jesus Christ. I’m sure there will always be weak, floundering believers that hold on by grace but never mature to the example of sainthood. Apostle Paul spoke of these immature believers that will lose all rewards before the Lord. “If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire” (I Corinthians 3:14-15) This certainly is not His plan. You can be more than an overcomer; you can go on unto the stature of the fullness of Jesus Christ (Ephesians 4:13) and be His light in the world. Grace is the mighty outworking of His sacrifice that will transform your life. He wants to make you His light in your world for His glory. Grace is truly supernatural.
