Five Things The Bible Says That Gospel Saving Grace Is

Contrary to all faulty catch-phrase definitions of “Grace” and all modern popular concepts of “Grace” being propagated these days, the Scriptures clearly explain what “Gospel Saving Grace” peculiarly means and does.

God has many unmerited favours for humanity which include His love, compassion, mercy, kindness, goodness, providence, etc and Grace. But what exactly is the specific favour in the Saving Grace of Christ?

.
(a). GOD’S SAVING GRACE IS HIS SUFFICIENT POWER THAT MAKES A BELIEVER ABOUND IN EVERY GOOD WORK.
2 Corinthians 9:8
(8) And God is able to make all GRACE ABOUND toward you; that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may ABOUND TO EVERY GOOD WORK:

.
(b). GOD’S SAVING GRACE IS WHAT MAKES EVERY BELIEVER TO RENOUNCE UNGODLINESS AND PURSUE GODLINESS.
Titus 2:11-13
(11) For the GRACE OF GOD has appeared, bringing salvation to all people.
(12) It trains us to RENOUNCE UNGODLY LIVING and worldly passions so that WE MIGHT LIVE SENSIBLE, honest, and godly lives in the present world
(13) as we wait for the blessed hope and the glorious appearance of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.

.
(c). GOD’S SAVING GRACE IS HIS SAVING GIFT WHICH WORKS IN US TO RECREATE US (from our bankrupt depravity) FOR DOING GOOD WORKS AS ORDAINED BY GOD.
Ephesians 2:8-10
(8) For BY GRACE ARE YOU SAVED through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
(9) NOT OF WORKS, lest any man should boast.
(10) For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus UNTO GOOD WORKS, which God has before ordained that we should walk in them.

.
(d). GOD’S SAVING GRACE IS HIS SAVING GIFT THROUGH WHICH WE RESIST THE DOMINION OF SIN
Romans 6:12-14
(12) LET NOT SIN therefore reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts.
(13) NEITHER YIELD your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
(14) FOR SIN SHALL NOT HAVE DOMINION OVER YOU: for you are not under the law, but UNDER GRACE.

.
(e). But, RECEIVING GOD’S SAVING GRACE INSTANTLY BRINGS US INTO POWERFUL RESPONSIBILITY FOR STEWARDSHIP OF DISPENSING GOD’S GRACE
Ephesians 3:2, 7
(2) Surely you have heard about the RESPONSIBILITY [i.e. dispensation] OF ADMINISTERING GOD’S GRACE that was given to me on your behalf,
(7) I have become a servant of this gospel according to THE GIFT OF GOD’S GRACE THAT WAS GIVEN ME BY THE WORKING OF HIS POWER.

1 Corinthians 15:10
(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 LABORED MORE ABUNDANTLY THAN THEY ALL: YET NOT I, BUT THE GRACE OF GOD WHICH WAS WITH ME.

.
So then…
“Christ’s Saving GRACE is God’s enabling power and divine strength given sufficiently to undeserving believers, with which believers overcome all weakness and difficulty to walk in godliness and truth.”

Receive sufficient GRACE in Jesus’ Name!
