Commentary on "Grace"



Day 7: Friday, May 15, 2009


Final Thoughts on Grace

The focus of this week's lesson was to define "grace". Because the Bible is so clear that we are saved by grace, no professing Christian would openly deny this truth. Yet, if the word grace is not clearly defined, then “grace” could be used in such a way that it is not actually true grace at all. It is not enough to just claim "grace". We must truly understand it's full Biblical definition.


Grace IS...

1. ...An attribute of God and therefore is eternal, immutable, and sovereign.

"Who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was granted us in Christ Jesus from all eternity." (2 Timothy 1:9)

"For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable." (Romans 11:29)

2. ...The work of God by which He accomplishes salvation. It is all from God--even the repentance and faith by which we come to God is from Him.

"For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast." (Ephesians 2:8,9)

"So that no man may boast before God. But by His doing you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption, so that, just as it is written, 'Let Him who boasts, boast in the Lord'." (1 Cor. 1:29-31)
