The Fullness of Grace, Part 3
1. Saving Grace [Eph. 2:8, Acts 26:18]
2. Enabling Grace [Rom. 6:14]
3. Grace Gifts [Rom. 12, 1 Cor. 12, Eph. 4]
4. Anointing [Is. 61, Lk. 4]
Romans 8:32 [AMP], He who did not spare [even] His own Son, but gave Him up for us all, how will He not also, along with Him, graciously [freely] give us all things?
Grace requires faith.
Romans 4:16 [AMP],Therefore, [inheriting] the promise depends entirely on faith [that is, confident trust in the unseen God], in order that it may be given as an act of grace [His unmerited favor and mercy]…
"We access God's grace by our faith."
Ephesians 2:8 [NKJV], For by grace you have been saved through faith…”
Hebrews 3:16 [TPT], The same people who were delivered from bondage and brought out of Egypt, were the ones who heard and still rebelled. 17 They grieved God for forty years by sinning in their unbelief… 18 So God swore an oath that they would never enter… 19 It is clear that they could not enter into their inheritance because they wrapped their hearts in unbelief.
Hebrews 4:1-3 [TPT],Now God has offered to us the same promise of entering into his realm of resting in confident faith. So we must be extremely careful to ensure that we all embrace the fullness of that promise and not fail to experience it. 2 For we have heard the good news of deliverance just as they did, yet they didn’t join their faith with the Word. Instead, what they heard didn’t affect them deeply, for they doubted. 3 For those of us who believe, faith activates the promise(s)…
How much has unbelief stolen from us?
We are called to "live by faith."
Faith defined: “a conviction, belief, trust, confidence, assurance and reliance in God and all that He says.”
“Faith is simply trusting that God is who He says He is and that He will do what He said He would do.”
Hebrews 11:1 [NLT],“Faith…is the evidence of things we cannot see.”
Real faith requires a revelation, not just an education.
It is time for God's people to make God big again in their sight.
Psalm 34:3,Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together.
“Faith honors God and God honors faith.”
Zechariah 4:6-7 [NKJV], “Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,” says the Lord of Hosts. “Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain! And He shall bring forth the capstone with shouts of ‘Grace, grace to it.”
Hebrews 10:35 [TPT],So don’t lose your bold, courageous faith, for you are destined for a great reward!
