What Is Grace?

If people only knew the reality of the situation. Nowadays, people are doubting the fact that God has come into this world. Those people who do have "faith" just believe that Jesus died for our sins. However, did you ever consider why Jesus died for our sins? Why are we chosen and saved by grace? Why does God love us so much? Without knowing the answer to this, we will come to be unappreciative of Their love afterall. First, we need to know what is our relationship to God.
Matt. 6:9 "This, then, is how you should pray:" 'Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,"
Matt. 23:9 "And do not call anyone on earth 'father,' for you have one Father, and he is in heaven."
Father God, as He came into the flesh 2000 years ago, taught us that God is Our Father thus showing that we are God's children.

Matt. 12:46 "While Jesus was still talking to the crowd, his mother and brothers stood outside, wanting to speak to him. 47 Someone told him, "Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to speak to you." 48 He replied to him, "Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?" 49 Pointing to his disciples, he said, "Here are my mother and my brothers. 50 For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother."

Some people confuse that Jesus is calling believers his mother. Actually, this verse is showing who are the heavenly brothers and sisters. The reason He mentioned 'mother' is because Mary was there. If Joseph was there also, He would have mentioned 'father' as well. However, Jesus taught us that the ones who do the will of God are children of God, brothers and sisters with eachother. Don't be confused, Jesus is the Father. He only came in the role of a son.

John 13:15 "I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you."

Seeing now that we are the children of God Almighty, who is Our Father, what about the missing person in the heavenly family? Shouldn't there be Heavenly Mother? Stay posted...
