The Bible teaches that sinful men are saved and morally changed by Divine Grace. Divine Grace goes beyond initial salvation and forgiveness,,, into the holy walk and the holy life of a believer.
Grace grants forgiveness to a sinner from all past sins…but there is still more
Grace gives man a holy heart in the new birth
Grace “teaches the believer in Christ to deny ungodliness and worldly lusts”…Titus 2:11-14…at the point of Salvation
Grace produces power to live sober, righteous, and godly in this present world… every day of your life in Christ
Grace gives constant victory over sinful conduct as it makes the heart and character of the believer in Christ holy and clean…Not to be taken lightly.
Grace keeps the Holy Spirit present in the child of God’s heart, life, character, and behavior
Grace enables holy men and women to be a pattern for Christ 1 Timothy 1:16
The Bible terms Divine Grace as …exceedingly abundant, much more, or something greater than Law. How blessed we are to have such blessing flow from Christ’s death and exaltation now in the present tense! What an honor to be enabled with power from above to be right and to do right. Jesus the Christ is the provider of such morality into the human make-up! Jesus is not just a great story that offers good morals. The presence and power of the deity of Christ “flows” into the heart through belief and trust in the person of Christ; in the reality of Christ; and in the substance of Christ. Divine Grace produces something holy and new. His Grace produces our changed moral make-up that gives us a better life on this side of Heaven.
Grace gives the believer in Christ an ability to “lay aside” sin (the acts of sin and the sin nature) as we run the race of life
Hebrews 12:1-2…let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith
The action of God’s Grace gives the believer in Christ power to lay aside sin. God doesn’t limit His Grace to just salvation of believers. Divine Grace is the power of the Gospel that Christ commanded us to preach. The Gospel generates the power and action of God Almighty. Today, the Gospel of the Grace of God is being made known around the globe through the person of Jesus Christ and the power of His Holy Spirit. Glad to be a part of such blessing!
Acts 20:24…But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the Grace of God.
