God wants everyone to live forever in love, joy, and peace, and Jesus has done everything that is necessary for this to happen! There is a problem in the modern day church; through tradition and the inertia of denominational influence, many believe that they must add their own efforts at holy living in order to come into God’s favor or receive blessings from Him. At Healing Grace, we believe that salvation, righteousness, and everything needed for abundant and joyful living have been provided freely through the finished work of Christ… The Old and New Testaments of the Bible are the inspired Word of God, and clearly point to two distinct covenants that God has made; a covenant of law (based on our works and performance in holiness) and a covenant of grace (based on faith in the finished work of Jesus) (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:19-21)… Jesus, by his suffering and death, fulfilled the law, paying the penalty for our sin in order to bring humanity into right standing with God (2 Cor. 5:21)… Jesus gives his righteousness to all who believe in him. This righteousness cannot be earned or merited, but is received through faith in Him (Ephesians 2:8)… Jesus’ sacrifice was so powerful that it paid for the sins of the entire world. God is not holding anyone’s sins against them (2 Cor. 5:19) and is not mad at anyone. The sin problem between God and humanity has been taken care. All of your sins, past, present, and future have been paid for with one sacrifice by our Lord (Hebrews 10:12). The only question remaining is, “do you believe this (John 3:16)?” Those who believe have eternal life. Those who reject this gift continue to be loved, and forgiven by their Lord and Savior even as they refuse his love and consign themselves to hell (John 3:18)… Jesus’ grace alone provides everything we need to reign in life (Romans 5:17). His grace provides: Perfect righteousness (2 Cor. 5:21) Eternal redemption (Heb. 9:12) Peace and joy Health and healing Provision for abundant living.. Jesus is our new High Priest, providing perpetual right standing with God. He warned us to not allow the leaven of our works to affect how we relate to Father God; good works and bad works are all “dead” in regard to affecting our standing before God. We can come boldly to God only through the new and living way of Jesus’ own sacrifice and gift of righteousness.
