Divine Grace does “more” than just save the soul

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,

Since 1988 I’ve been writing and doing service for the Lord. It all began in 1987 after a personal walk with the Lord. The personal walk with the Lord turned into extensive Bible studies which later evolved into blogging in early 2000. At present I write, author, and publish several different sites on the Internet. My Blogs contain a vast library of Theological writings, teaching videos, and preaching audios that currently go around the globe for the cause of Christ. I write at Christian Blessings on Wordpress, Holy Hubert Lindsey Group on Facebook, Churches on Trial at Google, publish You Tube videos, record sermons at sermon.net/holy, etc. I also pastor a Church called the Upper Room in Williamsburg, Ohio . My secular Blog called Southwestern Ohio Fishing on Wordpress is where I write about experiences with my son and fishing partner Chad where we together enjoy Mother Nature’s beauty mixed with Father God’s creation. At Southwestern Ohio Fishing Blog I also publish favorite recipes for those who enjoy eating and cooking as much as this writer does.

  1. I might add that divine grace not only keeps the Holy Spirit present in the life of the believer; Divine Grace is the Holy Spirit present in power in the life of the believer. We can personalize that Grace; and that person (the Spirit) empowers us to produce the fruit (of the Spirit)–the love, peace, kindness, and gentleness–that reflects the teaching of Jesus and the N.T.
