GOD'S WONDERFUL GRACE
10-19-08

(Grace) Charis- In Greek terminology the word grace implies a favor
freely done, without claims or expectation of return.

Galatians 2:5-9;Romans 5:8-10 When the word grace is applied to
Christ dying for sinners it is expressing His love for lost sinners or
His favor toward His enemies. This proves God's grace is infinite,
boundless, immense, unspeakable, inconceivable, wonderful and
unsearchable.
God's Grace is unmerited favor manifested toward sinners and
indicates that the demands of divine justice have been met, seeing that
the penalty was placed upon Christ.

WHAT GRACE DOES FOR US

Romans 5:20-21; Ephesians 2:8-9 Grace is the process by which God
saves the lost sinner. The word "abound" that Paul uses here means "to
exist in superabundance and then more grace is added to this super-
abundance." There is NO LIMIT to the amount of grace God has!!
Romans 5:15; II Corinthians 4:15 God gives this superabundant grace
to us in order for us to be called to salvation and called to His work,
see Galatians 1:15.
Romans 6:11-14 Grace brakes the chains of slavery to sin, and allows
us to serve God with our saved, righteous body.
Romans 3:24; Titus 3:7 Because of His grace, we are not only
"justified" (total acquittal from guilt), but we are made 'joint-heirs
with Christ'.
II Corinthians 8:1-2,7-8 God's grace will allow the believer to have
a joyful, loving, and charitable disposition toward giving.
Ecclesiastes 10:12; Colossians 4:6; Ephesians 4:29 God's grace
allows the believer to control our speech and give forth wise words,
and "edifying" words when needed the most.
I Peter 5:5-6 God's grace allows us to be "humble" and in subjection
to one another.
