Posted: December 13, 2011 in Bible Talks

Q: What does the Grace of God mean to you?

Q: What was the main message in Jesus’ ministry?

–         Jesus never preaches “grace”

–         He lived it out!

–         He was a man “full of grace and truth”

 

1 Corinthians 15:9-11

Q: How did Paul understand the grace of God in his own life?

–         True grace produces hard work

–         He understood he was in debt to Jesus (use to kill Christians!)

–         You can look at someone’s life and tell if they understand grace!

 

Titus 2:11-14

Q: What teaches us to say no to sin?

Q: How does God’s grace teach us to say no to sin?

– Discuss!

 

Ephesians 2:1-10

–         Saved to work!

–         Faith without works is no faith at all!

–         It is tough to be a Christian, Jesus laid out the lifestyle in his ministry!

–         Did Paul have a weaksauce view of grace?

 

5:1-14

–         Preach on this

–         Grace is understanding, God gives us a chance to repent!!!

Hebrews 10:26-27

Revelation 20:11-15

21:27

Today:

–         Instead of justification for the sinner, its justification for sin!

–         We have turned “costly grace” into “cheap grace”

–         Where scripture sees true grace as the provision of God that makes up for our failure after we have done all we could to follow Him!

–         Costly grace is that treasure hidden in the field! Have you found it!
