By The Grace of God
All that I am as a child of God, as a servant of Christ, as an heir of Heavenly glory, I am by the grace of God!
Am I cleansed from the guilt of my sins? It was Your grace, O God of love, which opened the fountain that washed it all away!
Am I justified? It was Your grace that provided the spotless robe of righteousness, in which I stand accepted before You.
Am I sanctified? It is not by works of righteousness which I have done, but by Your grace I am saved from the love and power of my sins.
Am I bearing any fruit to Your glory? It is by Your grace in Christ Jesus--for apart from Him, I could do nothing.
Am I different from what I once was, or from the ungodly who have their portion in this world? It is Your grace alone which has made me to differ. I have nothing which I have not received from You.
"By the grace of God I am what I am!" A pardoned sinner, a justified believer, an adopted child, an heir of glory!
