Grace is a basic concept in the lives of born-again believers. However, too many people misunderstand it and interpret it under the lens of the law. We receive God’s unearned, undeserved favor through faith in Jesus Christ, not through our works. This means we will not lose our salvation because of any sinful acts we commit. A common but wrong belief is that our sins can keep us out of heaven; reading the Bible in context reveals that unbelief in the sacrifice that Jesus made on the cross to permanently secure our salvation is the only sin that cannot be forgiven. As His people, God will never hold our past against us. Believing this gives us unshakeable security.
