By Pastor Sam Osamolu
Topic: The Grace of God. Text: John 1:14-17
Sub. Topic: Grace Neutralizers to Avoid
Golden Verse : ” But by 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” – 1 Cor. 15:10
Last week we started the exposition on the topic for the month- The Grace of God. We Considered the meaning and purpose of grace in the light of Titus 2:11-14. As Believers, we are saved by grace( Rom. 3:24 and Eph. 2:5 & 8).
Our focus today is “Grace Neutralizers to avoid”. May God grant us illumination.
(1) God’s grace has elastic limits- Rom. 6:1-2
(2) Grace Neutralizers to avoid:
(b) Frustrating God’s grace- Gal. 2:21
(d) Failing to access grace by faith- Rom. 5:2
(e) Following the error of the Church at Pergamos – Rev. 2:12-15
(f) Praying Contrary to scripture- John 10:35
(h) Tongue Abuse – Prov. 18:21
Conclusion : God’s grace is the believer’s school master after salvation. We must be careful not to misunderstand it as liberty for sin or irresponsible living. We must grow in grace – 2 Pet. 3:18.
