Grace Living

A topical Sunday School Class or Bible Study

 

Grace, or Godís unmerited favor is necessary for more than Salvation.We are saved by grace. Our whole lives must be lived by grace.Here are the headings and Scriptures I recently used for a Sunday School glass on this subject.

 

SAVING GRACE

Romans 3:24 - Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

 

Ephesians 2:8-9 - For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: [9] Not of works, lest any man should boast.

 

VISIBLE GRACE

Acts 11:23 - Who, when he came, and had seen the grace of God, was glad, and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord.

 

COMMITTED GRACE

Acts 15:40 - And Paul chose Silas, and departed, being recommended by the brethren unto the grace of God.

 

CONSTRUCTIVE GRACE

VICTORIOUS GRACE

SERVING GRACE

Ephesians 4:7 - But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.

 

Romans 12:6-8 - Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; [7] Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching; [8] Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.

 

 

SUFFICIENT GRACE

2 Corinthians 12:9 - And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

 

James 4:5-6 - Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy? [6] But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.

VOCAL GRACE

Colossians 3:16 - Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

 

Colossians 4:6 - Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.

 

AVAILABLE GRACE

Hebrews 4:14-16 - Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. [15] For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. [16] Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

 

INCREASING GRACE

John 1:16-17 - And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

PERFECTED GRACE

1 Peter 5:10 - But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
