The theme of the New Testament Scriptures…Acts-Revelation ring to the tune of “Divine Grace” or “the exceeding abundant Grace” or what some simply called, “Great Grace”. The miracle of the Divine Grace of God… is life-changing power that only comes to people who trust and accept what Christ did for them personally at Calvary and what He’s doing “now” presently from the Throneroom.
1 Thess 4:7…For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.
Divine Grace is the power of the Gospel message that changes the moral make-up of sinful man. How? Grace rids man of sin’s dominion. Romans 6:14
The Grace of God…saves the soul of sinful man from eternal death. Romans 5:20-21
The Grace of God…teaches sinful men to be Godly, righteous, and sober in this present world. Titus 2:11-14
Right standing with God is a believer’s state of existence because of Divine Grace…through faith. Romans 5:19
Righteousness is the gift of God’s Divine Grace given to those who accept Christ. Romans 5:17
The Divine Grace of God…produces the character of Christ in the heart of a believer. 1 Thess. 2:10
Divine Grace produces holiness of heart and conduct man is unable to receive without Christ.
Divine Grace keeps the Holy Spirit present in the life of a believer.
The Bible says where sin abounds…Grace abounds “much, much more”. Romans 5:20
The Grace of God is what changes men morally by giving them a holy heart…thus the body becomes the temple. 1 Cor. 3:17
When Paul received Divine Grace and Apostleship… he became a “holy example”.Romans 1:1-5 Unlike the Law of Moses…Divine Grace changed Paul’s behavior and character. Paul stated that in his old life he was the chief of sinners but in the new life he became a pattern or example of holiness to those who followed his ministry.1 Tim. 1:14-16
Strong’s concordance says that Grace is a Divine influence upon the heart of a believer that reflects in that life.
Divine Grace has nothing to do with the “works” of man, or human effort, or human achievement. Divine Grace is the action of God. Divine Grace is the present tense operation of God that is bestowed upon the heart of man through faith and trust in Christ’s redemptive work for personal forgiveness if sins.
2 Tim 1:8-9…but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God; Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace,
