Title: FAITH: A Gift of Gods Grace

FAITH A Gift of Gods Grace
  • Exploring the Truths
  • and Significance of
  • Ephesians 28-10

How We Got Here
  • Chosen
  • Redeemed
  • Plan of Redemption Revealed

All is a Gift of Grace
  • 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith
    and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of

No One May Boast in Themselves
  • 9 not as a result of works, so that no one may

Created in Christ for Good Works
  • 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ
    Jesus for good works, which God prepared
    beforehand so that we would walk in them.

Guarding against mere Mental Assent
  • Titus 211-14 For the grace of God has appeared,
    bringing salvation to all men, instructing us to
    deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live
    sensibly, righteously and godly in the present
    age, looking for the blessed hope and the
    appearing of the glory of our great God and
    Savior, Christ Jesus, who gave Himself for us to
    redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify
    for Himself a people for His own possession,
    zealous for good deeds.

A Living Faith is a Saving Faith
  • James 214-17 What use is it, my brethren, if
    someone says he has faith but he has no works?
    Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister
    is without clothing and in need of daily food,
    and one of you says to them, "Go in peace, be
    warmed and be filled," and yet you do not give
    them what is necessary for their body, what use
    is that? Even so faith, if it has no works, is
    dead, being by itself.

Why Faith is Such a Glorious Gift
  • A Living Faith is Preserved by God
  • 1 Peter 13-5 Blessed be the God and Father of
    our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great
    mercy has caused us to be born again to a living
    hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ
    from the dead, to obtain an inheritance which is
    imperishable and undefiled and will not fade
    away, reserved in heaven for you, who are
    protected by the power of God through faith for a
    salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

Why Faith is Such a Glorious Gift
  • A Living Faith Produces
  • Galatians 56 For in Christ Jesus neither
    circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything,
    but faith working through love.

Cling to Compatibalism
  • Definition of Compatibalism
  • Two Unassailable Truths
  • 1) God is Sovereign
  • 2) Humans are morally responsible beings and are
    free to choose what they want

Relating Compatibalism to Faith
  • A Living Faith is Given by God
  • A Living Faith is Exercised by Humans

Application Work out Your Salvation in Fear and
  • PHI 16 For I am confident of this very thing,
    that He who began a good work in you will perfect
    it until the day of Christ Jesus.
  • PHI 212-13So then, my beloved, just as you have
    always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but
    now much more in my absence, work out your
    salvation with fear and trembling for it is God
    who is at work in you, both to will and to work
    for His good pleasure.
