THE GIFT OF GOD



FOR IT IS BY GRACE YOU HAVE BEEN SAVED, THROUGH FAITH AND THIS NOT FROM YOURSELVES, IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD. Those who accept the Saviour, however sincere their conversion, should never be taught to say or to feel that they are saved. (Christ’s Object Lessons, 155) This is misleading. Everyone should be taught to cherish hope and faith; but even when we give ourselves to Christ and know that he accepts us, we are not beyond the reach of temptation. (155)

FOR IT IS BY GRACE YOU HAVE BEEN SAVED, THROUGH FAITH AND THIS NOT FROM YOURSELVES, IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD. Saved from what? Sin—Law breaking (Jm 3:4), coming short of God’s glory (Rm 3:23), rejecting Jesus as Saviour (Jn 5:39-40; 12:48). Selfishness—Money, time, thoughts Shame & Guilt—personal (Adam and Eve—not good enuf! This is why we cannot believe the gospel ) Separation from God’s heart—Eternal death

FOR IT IS BY GRACE YOU HAVE BEEN SAVED, THROUGH FAITH AND THIS NOT FROM YOURSELVES, IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD. “FOR IT IS BY GRACE” = Origin of Salvation “THROUGH FAITH” = Instrument or Mechanism (My faith or Jesus’ faith) “NOT OF YOURSELVES” = Misunderstanding (Faith & works?)

FOR IT IS BY GRACE YOU HAVE BEEN SAVED, THROUGH FAITH AND THIS NOT FROM YOURSELVES, IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD. MISUNDERSTANDING (Faith & works?) Faith without works is dead James 2:17 (Works=loving others) God created us for works! Ephesians 2:10 NLT A person is alive because they were born NOT because they breathe. We are NOT saved by Faith and Works, but We are saved by Faith in Jesus, and this relationship gives birth to Works of life, conceived by the HS.

FOR IT IS BY GRACE YOU HAVE BEEN SAVED, THROUGH FAITH AND THIS NOT FROM YOURSELVES, IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD. 1 Corinthians 15:10 NLT But whatever I am now, it is all because God poured out his special favor on me—and not without results. For I have worked harder than any of the other apostles; yet it was not I but God who was working through me by his grace.

FOR IT IS BY GRACE YOU HAVE BEEN SAVED, THROUGH FAITH AND THIS NOT FROM YOURSELVES, IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD. EPHESIANS 2:9-10 (NIV) Not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 for we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

FOR IT IS BY GRACE YOU HAVE BEEN SAVED, THROUGH FAITH AND THIS NOT FROM YOURSELVES, IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD. “FOR IT IS BY GRACE” = ORIGIN OF SALVATION “THROUGH FAITH” = INSTRUMENT OR MECHANISM (My faith or Jesus faith) “NOT OF YOURSELVES” = MISUNDERSTANDING (Faith & works?)

FOR IT IS BY GRACE YOU HAVE BEEN SAVED, THROUGH FAITH AND THIS NOT FROM YOURSELVES, IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD. “IT IS A GIFT OF GOD” UNCONDITIONAL (No strings attached). TITUS 1:1-2 Tessa from Travers City

FOR IT IS BY GRACE YOU HAVE BEEN SAVED, THROUGH FAITH AND THIS NOT FROM YOURSELVES, IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD. How shall I know if I have received God’s Grace? Can I pass grace on to others? I can only pass grace on if I have received grace!

FOR IT IS BY GRACE YOU HAVE BEEN SAVED, THROUGH FAITH AND THIS NOT FROM YOURSELVES, IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD. BLESS THE LORD, O MY SOUL O MY SOUL WORSHIP HIS HOLY NAME SING LIKE NEVER BEFORE O MY SOUL I WORSHIP YOUR HOLY NAME MATT REDMAN
