10 Reasons We Should Be People of Grace

1. GOD HAS ALWAYS SAVED MEN BY GRACE!

Noah found Grace

Genesis 6:8 (NKJV)

But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

Joseph found Grace

Genesis 39:21 (NKJV)

But the Lord was with Joseph and showed him mercy, and He gave him favor (grace) in the sight of the keeper of the prison.

Moses found Grace

Exodus 33:17 (NKJV)

So the Lord said to Moses, "I will also do this thing that you have spoken; for you have found grace in My sight, and I know you by name."



2. ISRAEL EXPERIENCED GOD’S GRACE!

Ezra 9:8 (NKJV)

And now for a little while grace has been shown from the Lord our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a peg in His holy place, that our God may enlighten our eyes and give us a measure of revival in our bondage.

Jeremiah 31:2 (NKJV)

Thus says the Lord:

"The people who survived the sword

Found grace in the wilderness--

Israel, when I went to give him rest."

Joel 2:23 (NLT)

Rejoice, you people of Jerusalem! Rejoice in the Lord your God! For the rains he sends are an expression of his grace. Once more the autumn rains will come, as well as the rains of spring.



3. GOD GIVES GRACE TO THOSE WHO WALK WITH HIM!

Psalm 84:11 (NKJV)

For the Lord God is a sun and shield;

The Lord will give grace and glory;

No good thing will He withhold

From those who walk uprightly.

Proverbs 3:34 (NKJV)

Surely He scorns the scornful,

But gives grace to the humble.


4. WE ARE SAVED BY GRACE!

Ephes. 2:7-8 (NKJV)

that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. [8] For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,



5. WE ARE SUSTAINED BY GRACE!

2 Cor. 12:9 (NKJV)

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.



6. WE ARE JUSTIFIED BY GRACE!

Romans 3:24 (NKJV)

being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,



7. WE HAVE ACCESS TO THE FATHER BY GRACE!

Romans 5:2 (NKJV)

through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.



8. ETERNAL LIFE IS A GIFT OF GRACE!

Romans 5:15 (NKJV)

But the free gift is not like the offense. For if by the one man's offense many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to many.



9. GRACE SETS US FREE FROM SIN!

Romans 6:14-15 (NLT)

Sin is no longer your master, for you are no longer subject to the law, which enslaves you to sin. Instead, you are free by God's grace.

15So since God's grace has set us free from the law, does this mean we can go on sinning? Of course not!



10. WE RECEIVE GRACE IN OUR TIME OF NEED!

Hebrews 4:16 (NKJV)

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