TRUE FAITH IS KEY TO UNDERSTANDING GRACE

Remember:

Romans 1:28  People did not think it was important to have a true knowledge of God.  So God left them and allowed them to have their own worthless thinking.

Romans 5:21 Sin once used death to rule us, but God gave people more of his grace so that grace could rule by making people right with him. .. this brings life forever through Jesus Christ..

1 John 4:7-19   Where God’s love is, there is no fearbecause God’s perfect love drives out fear….

2 Cor 13:5  Look closely at yourselves.  Test yourselves to see if you are living in the faith.

Romans 5:1-2  Since we have been made right with God by our faith, we have peace with God. This happened through our Lord Jesus Christ, who through our faith has brought us grace

Gal 3:11-14   Those who are right with God will live by faith.  13  He changed places with us… Jesus died so that by our believing we could receive the Spirit that God promise.

1 Thes 5:9   God did not choose us to suffer his anger but to have salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ

Heb 13:8-9  Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.  Do not let all kinds of strange teachings lead you into the wrong way.  Your hearts should be strengthened by God’s grace….

2 Peter 3:17-18 ...Be careful so you will not fall from your strong faith.  But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord…. 

1 Tim 1:1-7  The purpose of this command is for people to have love, a love that comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a true faith.

1 Tim 6:20-21 Stay away from foolish, useless talk and from the arguments of what is falsely called  “knowledge.”    ….some have missed the true faith.

Romans 16:17-18 look out for those who cause people to be against each other and who upset other people’s faith.   They are against the true teaching … stay away from them. Such people are not serving our Lord Christ…

2 Tim 2:11-19 This teaching is true: … warning people in God’s presence not to argue about words…  Be a worker .. who uses the true teaching in the right way.… Stay away from foolish, useless talk, because that will lead people further away from God…. They have left the true teaching.  … they are destroying the faith of someHeb 11:1        Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
