To introduce this message I freely gave away $5 and explained that it was “grace”. She did nothing to earn the money, nor would she be required to.
I then told the story of John Newton, the author of the hymn “Amazing Grace”.
I explained that there was still grace available for all of us and then commented on this outline and these verses.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE THE POWER POINT PRESENTATION OF THIS OUTLINE PLEASE EMAIL ME email@example.com AND ASK ME FOR THE POWER POINT. IF YOU ARE PASTORING PLEASE TELL ME WHERE YOU PASTOR. I JUST LIKE TO KNOW WHERE WE ARE MINISTERING WITH SERMON SEEDS.

KEPT BY GRACE
Acts 20:32 - And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.
VICTORY BY GRACE

Romans 6:14 - For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under 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.
2 Timothy 2:1 - Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
THE THRONE OF GRACE
Hebrews 4:15-16 - 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.  Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
MINISTRY BY GRACE
Acts 20:24 - But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.
1 Corinthians 15:10 - But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
1 Peter 4:10-11 - As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.  If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
