GRACE GIVEN BY JESUS CHRIST - By Robert E. Hanna



Scripture Reading: I Corinthians 1:3-8

The apostle Paul constantly rejoiced in the grace of God,  sharing his joy with the churches. Exaggeration of the scope  of the grace of God is not possible. One of our greatest  privileges as believers is to glory in the knowledge of what  grace has wrought in our lives. Paul frequently reminds us, in  his letters, of the work of grace and of its source. In our  textual passage, we find a most complete and blessed  salutation, directed to the Corinthian church:

"Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and  from the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God always on your  behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus  Christ; That in everything ye are enriched by Him, in all  utterance, and in all knowledge; even as the testimony of  Christ was confirmed in you: so that ye come behind in no  gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ: who  shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless  in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ."

What wonderful assurances are herein embraced! Paul  first affirms that grace and peace are proffered by God and  Christ. Then he offers thanks to God for the saints in  acknowledgment of His grace and expresses his desire that  their spiritual capacities be fully governed by their  confirmation in Him. He desires for the believers the richest  of blessings as they anticipate the glorious appearing; and  finally, the best news of all-"Our Lord Jesus Christ ... shall  confirm you unto the end." Grace is given by Christ. It brings  us the confirmation of our destination, strength to endure as  we await our departure and the assurance that we will be  presented perfect before Him at that day. Amazing grace!

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
