GRACE:  THE GIFT FROM GOD

Heb 7:19 The law of Moses could not make anything perfect.  But now a better hope has been given to us,  and with this hope we can come near to God.

1 Tim 3:16 (msg)  This Christian life is a great mystery,  far exceeding our understanding,  but some things are clear enough:   He appeared in a human body,  was proved right by the  invisible Spirit,  was seen by angels.   He was proclaimed among all kinds of peoples, believed in all over the world,  taken up into heavenly glory.

1 Thes 5:21-22 But test everything. Keep what is good, and stay away from everything that is evil.

1 John 4:2- This is how you can know God’s Spirit:  Every spirit who confesses that Jesus Christ came to the earth as a human is from God…..

John 1:14-16  The Word became a human and lived among us. We saw his glory – the glory that belongs to the only Son of the Father – …. grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.  

Titus 2:11-14 God’s readiness to give and forgive is now public.  Salvation’s available for everyone.

Eph 1:6  ...God gave that grace to us freely , in Christ, the one he loves…How rich is God’s grace,  which he has given to us so fully and freely.  

Eph 2:4-9 ..You have been saved by God’s grace.  I mean you have been saved by grace through believing.  You did not save yourselves;  it was a gift from God.             (Romans 9:16)

Eph 3:12   In Christ we can come before God with freedom and without fear.   We can do this through faith in Christ.

Romans 4:16   people receive God’s promise by having faith.  This happens so the promise can be a  free gift.

Romans 4:25-5:2  Jesus was given to die for our sins,  and he was raised from the dead to make us right with God.  Since we have been made right with God by our faith, we have peace with God.  This happened through our Lord Jesus Christ……

Romans 11:5-6 ..if he chose them by grace, it is not for the things they have done. If they could be made God’s people by what they did,  God’s gift of grace would not really be a gift.

2 Tim 1:9   God saved us….not because of anything we did ourselves but because of God’s grace.  That grace was given to us through Christ Jesus before time began…

2 Cor 6:1  Do not let the grace that you received from God be for nothing.

2 Peter 3:18   But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ….
