SERMON: April 17,2016 “GRACE: Is Grace Your Ticket to Heaven?
Grace is the “unmerited favor of God, more predominately made known through Jesus Christ, and expressed supremely in the redemption and full forgiveness of sinners through faith in Jesus Christ”. “…It is by grace you have been saved” (Ephesians 2:5). Pastor Dave reminds us that we have a God that because of His great love for us, poured out His grace. Grace has been there since the beginning of time; it was because of God’s grace that Adam and Eve went from “fig leaves to fur coats” after the fall of man. Pastor Dave also quoted from Charles Swindoll’s “Grace that Releases” “One characteristic of a grace awakening ministry deserves special attention: release from past failures. A ministry of grace doesn’t keep bringing up the past for the purpose of holding it over people. There is an absence of shame.” To read the full devotional, please copy and paste the link below.
