This is God’s Word to every believer!

In Paul’s greeting to every church He says, “Grace and peace be unto you 
from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” This is God’s Word to 
every believer! Grace to you! Other than the Name of Christ Himself this 
is my favorite word…. grace! Salvation in every aspect, from election to 
glorification and everything in between is by the grace of God. “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.” If salvation 
really is all of grace, and not of works, I have peace. Grace is the 
cause of peace, the ground of peace, and the maintenance of peace. We 
enjoy this peace only as we believe grace. Peter said, “We believe that 
through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as 
they!” By His grace we have been saved, are being saved, and will be 
saved! That is why we have peace. The ground of our peace is the same 
ground as God’s – the grace of Christ.
