Without Exception!

By J.C. O’ Hair

“The Scripture hath concluded All under sin.” Galatians 3:2

“The wages of sin is death.” Romans 6:23

Is there any way to escape this sentence of death? Read, and believe, the last statement of Rom. 6:23: “The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

The salvation of your soul would be worth a lifetime of striving, and working, to obtain: but it cannot be obtained in that way. That would nullify the grace of God, and the work of Jesus Christ.

God gave His only begotten Son that we might have everlasting life. John 3:16. And God’s Son “gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil world.” Gal. 1:4. “We (believers) have redemption through (Christ’s) blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.” Ephesians 1:7.

Salvation by grace excludes human work and merit, and depends entirely upon the free gift of God’s love and mercy, which is received through faith in the work of of our Jesus Christ. Romans 4:24-25.

The fact of salvation by grace excludes the law, ceremonies and good works as factors in salvation during this dispensation. Galatians 2:21

“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

We are living in the “dispensation of the grace of God.” Ephesians 3:2 and Colossians 1:25. “We are not under the law, but under grace. “Romans 6:14.

God has displayed His grace in every dispensation but the dispensation in which we live is unique in that no work or ceremony is required or accepted for salvation. It is all of grace, God’s grace. Salvation is bestowed freely by grace, without works, on all those who receive and trust in the crucified, risen, glorified Christ as Savior and Lord. Romans 4:5 and Titus 3:5.

“Believe on (have FAITH in-rely upon) THE LORD JESUS CHRIST and thou shalt be saved .” Acts 16:31.
