Grace Alone

April 3, 2022 Speaker: Jay Pound Series: Alone: Five Core Beliefs

Grace: an act or attitude of favor; a gift

  • Salvation through Jesus is God’s greatest gift 

God’s saving grace is without any prior conditions (Rm. 3.23-24)

  • God’s gift always comes first
  • God’s gift is not based on any prior evaluation of our worth (Acts 10, Gal. 3.28)

God’s saving grace is superabundant (Rm. 5.20-21)

  • No sin is so great that God’s grace is not greater still

God’s saving grace is effective (Rm. 6.23)

  • For those who receive it, God’s grace turns death into new life (Eph. 2.5-6)

Take Home Idea: God’s greatest gift - salvation and eternal life - is offered freely to all people with no prior conditions.
