I have often wondered and have finally come to understand the relationship between GRACE and BLESSING.

 

Can a blessing be earned? I have done all these wonderful things and therefore I should expect a blessing?....the beatitudes is what fueled this belief

 

Vs.

 

I'm blessed or receive blessings through GRACE....Paul's teaching s what led to this belief and a website I reviewed.

 

Earnings create a debt and GRACE doesn't.

Earned blessing can be built on pride while a blessing resulting from GRACE can't

Earnings depend too much on what YOU do while GRACE depends on what God does

Earnings are a function of a secular system while GRACE is a kingdom principle

 

Does anyone share that sentiment....if i'm wrong I will gracefully accept correction.

If you share and have any other points that you would like to add, that's fine too.

 

Let me know your thoughts.

Grace entitles us to have the fruit of the Spirit, e.g., love, joy, peace, forebearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.  Grace is given to us; we do not earn grace, it is given based on obedience to confessing Jesus as Lord of our lives.  We inherit the gift of grace based on faith in God.
