Amazing Grace

The “God of all grace” (1 Pet. 5:10) has an endless supply of “manifold grace” (1 Pet. 4:10) for our many needs:

I. Saving Grace (Eph. 2:8-9)

II. Sanctifying Grace (Rom. 6:14; Titus 2:11-14)

III. Serving Grace (2 Cor. 9:8)

IV. Singing Grace (Col. 3:16)

V. Suffering Grace (2 Cor. 12:9)

His amazing and abundant grace will work for all who trust in Him (Jam. 4:6)! If it is not working in your life, perhaps you received the grace of God in vain (1 Cor. 15:10; 2 Cor. 6:1). In other words, if God's grace is not bringing forth fruit in your life, maybe you do not know the grace of God in truth (Col. 1:6). Grace is not liberty TO sin (Rom. 6:1-2) but liberty FROM sin. It is false teachers that turn "the grace of our God into lasciviousness" (Jude 4).
