GOD’S GRACE {2}


The Scriptures tell us Grace came by Christ!

John 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

Romans 5:15,17

15 But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.

16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification.

17 For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)

Grace is given by Christ: 1Cor.1: 4 I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;

Grace foretold by prophets: 1 Peter 1:10 Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:

The Riches of Grace Shown by God’s Kindness Though Christ Jesus:

Ephesians 2:7-8 King James Version

7 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:

Glory of Grace shown in our acceptance in Christ:

Ephesians 1: 6 King James Version

To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

Grace Described as:

*Great—– Acts 4:33 And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.

*Sovereign—–Romans 5:21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.

*Rich——Ephesians 1:7 King James Version

In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

Ephesians 2:7 King James Version

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

*In 2 Cor.9:14 we are told that God’s Grace is exceeding.2 Corinthians 9:14 King James Version

14 And by their prayer for you, which long after you for the exceeding grace of God in you.

Our last one for today is 1 Peter 4:10 As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
