FOF-5 - The Grace Of God
The Scripture says, “The grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men,” Titus 2:11.
As we think about things that are fundamental to faith, we realize that God's grace is such a fundamental part of salvation that without it, there'd be no hope whatsoever. The Bible says in John 1:17 that ‘the law came through Moses but grace and truth are given in Christ Jesus.’ It is that grace that is epitomized in the sacrifice of our Lord and Savior. 2 Corinthians 8:9, Paul said, “You know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ though, He was rich yet for your sakes He became poor that we through His poverty might be made rich.” Grace is one of those truly rich and encouraging subjects that we think about in Scripture. But as we also think about the idea of grace, let's realize that a lot of false doctrines have been spawned about grace. For a few moments let's deal with some of those ideas, so that we can get the negative things about grace that are out there out of the way.
