If God is your Father,
you do not have to accept the grace of God.
You are born with it.

Welcome to Worthy.  :thumbsup:

 

I'm having trouble trying to understand what you are saying. 

 

Are you trying to say, "Born again " ?

You are born with it.

God is your Father when you accept Him as such and are thereby saved. We are not born saved.

you do not have to accept the grace of God.

 

You are born with it.

But

 

But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,

 

Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

 

And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

 

That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

 

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Ephesians 2:4-8

Born

 

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Romans 3:23

 

To Die

 

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23

 

Yet Born Again

 

Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. 1 Peter 1:22-23

 

To Live

 

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. John 5:24

Welcome.

You posted "If God is your Father,

you do not have to accept the grace of God.

You are born with it."

Do you mean that if God is your Father that means you have already accepted His grace for salvation?

I am reminded of the old hymn:

"You who are longing to see His face,

Will you this moment His grace receive;

Grace, grace, God's grace,

Grace that will pardon and cleanse from sin,

Grace, grace, God's grace,

Grace that is greater than all our sins."

Perhaps you will explain this elsewhere and prove your points.

At any rate, welcome.

Hi! May we all grow deeper in God's word and live for Him alone :)

As far as I know...

We all aren't born saved, having Christian parents doesn't make us Christians too! 

We break the bondage of sin ONLY when we accept the Lord Jesus Christ as our personal Savior, by grace through faith.

 

Ephesians 2: 8-9 says

 

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.

I agree, dee-han. Ephesians 1:5 says "He predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ." And Ephesians 2:1 says we were "dead in our transgressions and sins." This indicates that God is our Father only through adoption (that we must choose), but not in our natural-born state.

I should add that to me, "predestined" indicates that God has already chosen us and desires all people to become his children. All are welcome to be part of the family and under His grace. So being "dead in our transgressions" and outside His grace need only be a very short-lived and temporary condition. In that sense, I think I understand the sentiment of the original post, saying that we are already born with God's grace. It is certainly available to us all, at all times.
