Introduction: Grace is characterized as the "underserved love and favor of God toward fallen man." When you consider all that that implies, it is a marvelous idea! It implies that any miscreant can be saved! Any tempest can be endured. Any circumstance can be confronted. At the point when we sing Amazing Grace, we are coming clean. This entry is one of the most clear in the Bible on beauty and its outcomes. Notice three realities about God's astonishing beauty.
I. v.11 GRACE SAVES US A. Elegance brings salvation - Eph. 2:8-9; Rom. 4:4-5 (Ill. Too incredible a miscreant - Rom. 5:20) B. Salvation Means that the Christian has been: 1. Purged from transgression by the blood of Jesus - Rev. 1:5 (Ill. His blood) (Ill. v. 14 - Redeemed; Purified; Gave - it was 100% God) 2. Conveyed forever from the punishment of wrongdoing - Rom. 6:23; John 10:27-30 (Ill. Judgment, Hell and the dreadfulness of both) 3. Guaranteed of Heaven when we kick the bucket - John 14:1-3; 2Cor. 5:1-8; John 11:25-26 C. Do you know Jesus? Sick. The need of the New Birth - John 3:3,7 (Acts 16:31; John 3:16; John 6:47 - all show its effortlessness) (Ill. Rom. 10:9-10 - Confess and accept - You can be saved) II. v.12 GRACE SCHOOLS US (Teaches Christian Living) A. Shows the negative side of Christian living: What to stay away from! 1. Wickedness - Anything that doesn't laud God - 1Cor.10:31. 2. Common Lusts - James 4:4; 1John 2:15 B. Shows the positive side of Christian living: What to do! 1. Temperately - Our Self - Col. 3:5-10 (Ill. The large change 2Cor. 5:17) (Il. Your Character - What you are the point at which you are separated from everyone else!) 2. Equitably - Our Fellowman - Rom. 12:17-21 (Ill. Our technique Mt. 22:39; Our Motive - Mt. 5:16) Ill. Your Reputation - What individuals think you are!; Not in every case valid) 3. Faithful - Our God - Col 3:15-17 (All we do ought to be to satisfy Him - Ill. 2Cor. 10:5) (What you truly are - Heb. 4:13) C. Effortlessness will show you how to live. I'm happy that God shows restraint toward His young kids! That is only His elegance! III. v.13-14 GRACE SEPERATES US (Provides the Christian with Hope) Our expectation as devotees sererates us from the remainder of the world! A. Makes us search for Christ - Jesus is coming!
