Subjectively, the Spirit of God has confirmed the great love God has for us in our hearts. Objectively, the love of God has been demonstrated to us by Him sending His Son to die for us. The amazing fact of God's love is that it was shown to those who were helpless, ungodly, and of no value to God. This love was demonstrated to us who were the enemies of God. We, in and of ourselves, have no means of being brought into a right relationship with God.
The grace of God, past, present, and future is the believer's blessed hope. The grace of God has appeared in the person and work of Jesus Christ. That grace in the past provided salvation of sinners who will come to God by faith alone, in Christ alone. The grace of God for the present, "now age" teaches and enables saved sinners to live consistent with their new character. Being so taught the believer lives a life of worship and obedience anticipating the future grace of God to reappear in the person of Jesus Christ. When He does, He will complete the transformation of believer's lives into perfect conformity with His character. The world may be falling apart but our great God and Savior is coming again. With that great hope we, who have been saved by the grace of His first appearing, endure, persevere, and rejoice, as we await His glorious return.
