Bible study on grace.

Tit. 2:11

God's grace has appeared to all men.

Objectively, "grace" means that which bestows pleasure, delight, joy, or causes favorable regard.

Subjectively, "grace" means the friendly disposition of mind to bestow a kindly act, undeserved favor.

God's grace is only contacted in Christ (Eph. 2:7; 2 Tim. 1:9; 2:1; 2:10) though it has appeared to all men (Tit. 2:11). We enter into Christ through baptism (Rom. 6:3; Gal. 3:27).

2 Tim. 1:9

The grace of God was given to us in Christ before time began (2 Tim. 1:9) according to God's predetermination (Acts 15:18; Eph. chp. 1-2).

Rom. 3:24; 2 Tim. 2:1, 10

Grace and salvation are in Christ. We enter Christ through baptism (Rom. 6:3; Gal. 3:27).

Rom. 5:1-2

We access God's grace through Christ by faith.

Salvation is a free gift (by God's grace) to those who are in Christ (Rom. 5:1-2, 15; 6:23).

Eph. 2:8-10

We are saved by grace through faith, not of works. We are God's workmanship for good works.

Gen. 6:8; 1 Pet. 3:20- 21

Noah was saved by grace. Yet, he had to obey God and build the ark by faith to be saved from the flood (Gen. 6:14-22; Heb. 11:7).

We are saved by grace through faith (Eph. 2:8). Faith demands that we obey God (Rom. 1:5; 16:26; Gal. 5:6; Heb. 11:1-40). The antitype which now saves us is baptism (1 Pet. 3:20-21).

Gal. 5:4

Christians can fall from grace.

Some Christians will depart from the faith (1 Tim. 4:1-5; Heb. 3:12).

Christians, who return to a life of sin, crucify again for themselves the Son of God (Heb. 6:4-6).

Christians can sin willfully, trampling the Son of God underfoot and counting the blood of the covenant with which they were sanctified a common thing (Heb. 10:26-29).

We must be diligent not to fall short of God's grace by defiling ourselves and selling our birthright (Heb. 12:12- 17).

When a Christian returns to a life of sin, his name is blotted out of the Book of Life (Rev. 3:3-5).

Paul delivered two Christians to Satan that they might learn not to blaspheme (1 Tim. 1:18-20).

The church must deliver Christians who do not repent of sin to Satan so that they might be saved (1 Cor. 5:5).

Also, see APOSTASY.

Acts 8:22-24; 1 Jn. 1:9- 2:2

When Christians sin, they have Jesus as their Advocate. They must repent, pray, and confess their sins for forgiveness.
