Class 17: Grace


Previous Part

Part 3: Are you in training?

(This is part 3 of 9 parts in this class)


Consider this following verse and what it tells us about grace,

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear.

Hebrews 12:28 - NKJV


Grace is one of the most important of the "all things of God that pertain to life and godliness". (2 Peter 1:2-3) Grace gives us just the help we need just at the time we need it so that we may have life - the life of God - and godliness. Grace positions us to serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. Grace leads us away from a life lived after the passionate cravings of this world and into a life ever in the presence of God.


Paul set this out for us so beautifully in his epistle (letter) to Titus,

For the grace of God has broken into history for the salvation of all men. It is training us to renounce the life in which God is banished from the scene, and in which the world's desires hold sway, and in this age to live a well-ordered, upright and godly life, while all the time we are waiting for our blessed hope to be realized.

Titus 2:11-13 - William Barclay's translation


Grace trains us in life for life!
