What is grace? Does it mean we don’t sin?

God’s grace (undeserved, unmerited, unearned favor) empowers us to experience victory over sin, unclean habits and addictions in our lives. In other words, God’s grace gives us dominion over sin (Romans 6:14), NOT keeps us under the bondage and power of sin.
The Bible is very clear, and emphatic, about this. Romans 6:14 says, “For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.” Sin loses its control (“dominion”) over you when you are under grace (“not under law but under grace”).

In the story of the woman caught in adultery, the Bible records Jesus telling her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.” (John 8:10–11) Jesus extended His grace (undeserved, unmerited, unearned favor) to the woman by giving her the gift of no condemnation first, and in doing so, He empowered her to “go and sin no more”. He did this because He knew that He would bear her sins on the cross. So, it is only when someone truly has a revelation that God does not condemn them, because of what happened at the cross, that they would have the power to get out of the vicious circle of sin.

In the Gospels, Jesus plainly taught that if someone understands how much God has forgiven them through the finished work of Christ, he or she would fall in love with Jesus and love Him even more (Luke 7:47, New Living Translation), not go out and sin more, or go on living in sin.

So, if someone says, “Well, I am under grace,” but continues to live a lifestyle of sin, this person does not understand grace at all. Again, the Bible says in Romans 6:14 that “sin shall not have dominion over you, for [or because] you are not under law but under grace”. So, the person may say he is under grace, but he is not enjoying the gift of no condemnation nor is he enjoying the free, unmerited favor of God. That is why sin still has dominion over him.

Someone who has really known and experienced grace and the gift of no condemnation will NOT want to live in sin. Sin will be the last thing on his mind. A person cannot claim to be under grace when he/she continues to live in sin because grace ALWAYS results in victory over sin.

Why great offers attract the right clients…and how to create your own

What stands between a great product and
a transaction is a compelling and irresistible offer.
Once a client hears about you or sees your ad,
they need a reason to give you money.

Most businesses don’t give any
reason why you should buy from them. 

The offer is the hinge that opens the door to their wallets.
This is the first in a series of posts
I’ll be writing on different kinds of offers and how to create them.
Look out for the hashtag #reasontobuy on Instagram

Here are some popular kinds of offers
that you can copy and paste into your business-

*Risk reversal
*Try before you buy
*Free trial
*Free training
*Free consultation
*Buy 1 get 1 free
*Free shipping
*No money down
*Small deposit plus deferred payments
*Free gift when you come in
*Only pay for shipping
*Only pay for shipping, if you like it, keep it
and I’ll charge you, if you don’t, keep it but I won’t charge you

A good offer is simply the system that turns a prospect into a client.
It is made up of psychological and mental triggers
that offer the prospect a compelling reason to give you money.

After the prospect has contacted you or opted in for
your lead magnet, this is what you show them next.

Your offer can either be in the form of a PDF, Video,
phone call or one on one.

The key is to remove all doubts and objections from
the prospects mind.

Here is my Magnetic Offer Template

1 Give the client what he desires, explain the
benefits of your offer and tell the client the reason you are doing this. 

Using my business as an example, the lead magnet
for my strategic coaching and consulting services is the Advanced Growth Manual.
The manual’s purpose is to get the prospect to apply to work with me as a client.

Let’s say a prospect opts in for information on how
to increase his sales.

After a client opts in for my lead magnet on my website,
I present them with the free content and an offer to work
with me. The offer is usually embedded in the content itself
and the prospect has to apply or contact my office for a free
consultation and planning session.

After the prospect opts in for the free manual, I give him
my system for attracting and converting high paying clients.
Sometimes I offer a free campaign he can use to increase his income in just 6 days.

Second, I tell the prospect that the campaign
will give him an extra inflow of cash in a short time.
We do this because the prospect has to know exactly
what he’ll get after doing what you tell them.
Most importantly I want the prospect to get immediate
results on their own.

Third, I explain that I do this partly because I enjoy
helping entrepreneurs make money.
I also mention that giving away this free campaign is a way to get new clients.

You have to always give the reason for offering free
help since many people are skeptical and want to deal with someone who is transparent.

2 Remove sales pressure and show proof
The first psychological trigger I use is that I remind
the client that they are under no obligation to become a client.
I re-assure them that I will not pester or pressure

them to buy anything after this initial communication.

The second thing to do here is offer social proof such
as testimonials and endorsements if you have them.

This works very well.

This is important because prospects in many markets
are used to signing up for something free and getting
inundated with spam, high pressure salespeople and
unwanted mail. You want them to know that you are
genuinely interested in helping them with no strings attached.

3 Risk Reversal and Guarantee
The second psychological trigger is done by reversing
the risk of the transaction.
At this stage I pitch the client on my services and let
them know that there is no risk involved.

My risk reversal offer is this:
“if after using my free content you decide to apply to
become a client, I will create a customized growth strategy plan
for free and show you how to double your business this year.
My monthly fee is $9,800 for strategic coaching and consulting.
My guarantee is that if you do not make at least $10,000 within
a month of working with me,
I will refund the entire amount, no questions asked.
You even get to keep everything I sent you. ”

Such a bold risk reversal and guarantee shows the prospect
that they have nothing to lose.
They get a free growth strategy that they can use and in case
they do not get results, they get their money back.

If you can’t guarantee what you are selling, then you need to find something else to sell.

4 The takeaway and qualification
At this point the prospect has gotten my free content,
seen the benefits, knows how much I charge and
understands what he will get if he works with me.
Another effective psychological trigger here is to make
him quality himself.

I do this by stating the characteristics of the type of client
I can help and the type that should not apply to work with me.
Doing this not only keeps the wrong prospects from contacting you.
It also puts you in the place of authority where the
prospect sees you as an expert and not a commodity in your field.

Unfortunately many entrepreneurs beg prospects to
work with them and that puts the power in the hands of the prospect.

5 Call to action
Finally I tell the client what he needs to do to be able
to contact me. My lead magnet will direct him to a form
or phone number that he has to call to qualify himself.

I usually have him answer some questions about himself
and his business so I can do some research.
Research is good because it prepares me for the consulting
session and also let’s me know if I can help the prospect or not.

6 Closing the sale
This is the part where most people make mistakes.

Closing the sale involves simply asking the right questions,
listening to the client and offering solutions in a collaborative
The last step is sending your invoice or order form.

By collaborative manner, I mean you let the prospect feel like
you are not telling him what to do but listening to his ideas
and offering useful feedback.

For e.g By the time I speak with the client I already have
some ideas that can help him.
I find out where he is now and listen to find out where he
wants to go with his business.
My answers provide the bridge between where he is now
and where he wants to be.

I then end the session by repeating all the solutions we came
up with together and then I use this line.

“I’m glad we have been able to create a plan of action
that will double your business in a few short months.
Would you like me to help you implement these plans
and others over the next few months?”

At this point, the prospect usually says yes and
pays my fee for the first month.
It’s really that easy.
All I had to do was practice
Luke 6:38 “Give and it shall be given to you.”

I gave value and the prospect became a client.

To conclude..
My system is simply offering free help and asking the
prospect to become a client.
No shenanigans or gimmicks necessary.

How to use Jesus Christ’s faith instead of “yours”

Faith is our response to what our Father has already given us in Christ.
Grace has provided all things(Ephesians 1:3).

Faith merely takes what Grace has already provided.
Many people struggle with faith because they have been
improperly taught.
They genuinely believe they have little faith and Jesus
has great faith separate from them.
This creates a struggle of never knowing if you have
enough faith for something.

Natural human faith is self conscious and is always
thinking about “Can I do this or can I do that”.
A Christian who knows who they are in Christ simply rests
and says “I can do all things because of Christ’s ability in me.”

The truth is that once you become a
child of God, you inherited everything that Jesus has.

We are joint-heirs and co-owners of everything that our Father has.
Every single atom in the universe belongs to you as much as it belongs to God.

Think of all the great feats that men have been able to do by natural human faith.
Now compare them to what Jesus and the apostles did…
the raising of the dead, the subduing of nations, the stopping
of the sun, the killing of giants, the prophet who run faster
than horses, the fish that brought gold etc

Once the sons of God know who they are and what they can
do in Christ, there will be manifestations that men cannot even imagine.

Have you wondered what makes faith work and how to get consistent results?

The answers are found in these scriptures.
Mark 11:22 “Have the faith of God.”
The right translation tells us that Jesus was telling us to use our Father’s faith.
He never told us to have faith in ourselves like the people of the world talk about today.
Faith in yourself is limited to what you know, what you’ve witnessed and what you can do by human might.

Using the faith of God means we are limitless. 
There is nothing you cannot do.

Pick whatever price you want for your products and use Jesus’ faith.
His faith drew fish to Peter in broad daylight.
He can bring you any number of customers you want.

2. Galatians 2:20 “I live by the faith of the son of God”
In the original greek translation, Paul said the life and faith he was using was not His own.
He was using Jesus’ life and faith.

This removes all worry, cares and unnecessary responsibility from you. 
When I lay hands on the sick, I’m not conscious of my own faith.
I know it’s Jesus’ healing power that is flowing from me into their bodies.

When I decree what my business’ profits will be, it’s based on the
fact that Jesus has already guaranteed me victory.
As far as our Father is concerned, life is a limitless check and all
we have to do is say what we want to see.

We don’t ask, “Is my faith strong enough.”.
We simply say “Jesus’ faith is stronger than all.
His faith is working in me and for me so I’ll eventually
see the manifestation of His love. ”

By using the faith of Jesus, you can own 100
percent market share in any industry you choose.
You can have whatever you want in life if you will
simply rest in Jesus’ faith.

Hebrews 12:2 

2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of
our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him
endured the cross, despising the shame, and has
sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

There is no possibility of failure in Him.
