GRACE AND MERCY - John Baker


Scripture Reading: Titus 3:4-7

The gospel of the grace of God is that we are saved by  grace through faith, alone. We are not saved because of who  we are or what we have done. We are nobody and we have  done nothing worthy of God's salvation. "For by grace are ye  saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of  God: not of works, lest any man should boast" (Ephesians  2:8,9). "But to him that worketh not, but believeth on Him  that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for  righteousness" (Romans 4:5). "Not by works of righteousness  which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us,  by the washing of regenerat,ion, and renewing of the Holy  Ghost+(Titus 3:5).

Grace is receiving from God that which we do not  deserve. "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not  of yourselves: it is the gift of God" (Ephesians 2:8). Mercy is  not receiving from God that which we do deserve. God in His  great grace sent His son to die in our place, so that He might  freely give us salvation. He gave us that which we do not  deserve. This is grace. We do deserve judgment, wrath and  Hell. However, because of Christ's finished work, we will not  receive what we deserve, because Christ bore this judgment in  our place. That is God's mercy. We appropriate all of this by  faith alone.



How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
