Paul’s  Spiritual Tip

G-R-A-C-E
A  Way to Remember Grace!

G           is for       GIFT
A gift is not earned
A gift is paid for by another
A gift is to be received
A gift indicates forethought by the giver
A gift indicates an exchange of ownership
A true gift is motivated by love -not a barter -not a bribe -not a buy back

R           is for       RESOURCE

You have signatory rights on God’s Checking Account because of Grace
Whatever you need to do God’s will, there are resources available to you because of Grace
2 Corinthians 12:9 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
God Says “My grace = My strength”

A           is for       ACCESS
To God’s Presence
To God’s Power
To God’s Wisdom
To God’s Provision
To More Grace
Romans 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.
Sin cannot win against Grace!

C           is for       CHRIST
Grace is through Christ Jesus
Grace is in Christ Jesus

E           is for       EXALTATION
Grace comes to the humble
Grace paves the path to promotion

G-R-A-C-E
Let’s Review and Rehearse!

Applying what we have learned:

GIFT – I have something to give
1 Peter 4:10 As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

Economics work on giving and receiving

RESOURCE – I have a resource to do this

Ephesians 1:3-12
Ephesians 1:7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace

ACCESS – I can access my Father the King

Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

Our confidence is centered in Jesus

CHRIST – Christ is in me

2 Peter 3:18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.
2 Timothy 2:1 You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
Jesus was/is full of grace and truth!

EXALTATION – God desires to promote me

1 Peter 5:5 Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for “ God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.” 6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time,

Every situation will be up or down —– ?

Appropriating Grace

Faith to believe  (Ephesians 2:8-9)
Ephesians 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
Confidence to receive (Hebrews 4:16)
Power to Achieve (Hebrews 4:16)

Let’s Release Grace in Worship
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.
