It Is The GOSPEL of God's Grace.

"But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God."
Acts 20:24 NKJV

The grace of God is not just a concept, a doctrine or subject. It is the gospel. The word gospel means good news and the gospel preached that is not about the grace of God towards mankind is not the Gospel of Christ.

Apostle Paul was stunned by how soon the pure grace message he brought to Galatia became so watered down and transformed by charlatans. Believers before whom Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified were going back to the law of Moses.

Paul frowned at them and called them "foolish". They started out in the Spirit and now were seeking to be perfected by the flesh. Their journey started out in faith but they were now holding on to works. Religion had set in. The flesh had kicked in.

Jesus saved us from our sins without our participation and He shall perfect us without our participation. The journey is from faith and ends in faith. We are saved by grace through faith, not of our own works lest anyone should boast. We should not be tempted to claim any responsibility for any part, or phase of our salvation testimony.

Preach the grace of God in Christ Jesus or don't preach at all. Don't balance grace, you will mess it up. What we call balance God calls perversion. "I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ." (Galatians 1:6‭-‬7 NKJV).

Why was Paul so furious at these Turkish (present day location of ancient Galatia) believers? It is because he loved them and he knew the law would kill them. Only the grace of God has the capacity and means to deliver life to mankind. The law could stop death if kept to the dot but it actually made things worse because its demands were unattainable by the flesh in whom no good thing dwells. God had to meet the demands of the law by Himself in Christ so that we can have life. He is gracious.

Moses carried the ministry of death written and engraved on stones through the wilderness. He was killed by His own ministry. The law that was thought to bring life brought death. It was glorious but the grace of God supercedes in glory. When we preach and testify of the grace of God, salvation will rain on the earth.

I am a product of the grace of life in Christ Jesus. I am a preacher of grace and not law.
