GOD’S AMAZING GRACE (Part Seven)



   Review:  Ephesians 2:8-10


   I.  A “word” of caution.

       A.  Let’s not make the mistake of “not seeing the forest for the trees.”

             1.  Grace is God’s part and faith is our part.  See back of outline.

       B.  Let’s not make the mistake of assuming that since we are saved by grace, we can do the
             least possible.  Philippians 2:12-13 (868); Luke 17:10 (769)

       C.  There are two extremes that we must avoid:

             1.  The way of working for righteous.  Ephesians 2:8-9

             2.  The way of doing nothing.  James 2:17,26 (892); Ephesians 2:8-10 (864)


  II.  What should our attitude be toward God’s grace?

       A.  We should express an attitude of gratitude to God.  2 Corinthians 9:8,15 (856); 1 Corinthians
             15:57-58 (851)

       B.  We should possess humility.  1 Corinthians 15:9-10 (850)

       C.  We should display compassion.  Romans 9:1-4 (835)

       D.  We should be of service to God.  1 Corinthians 15:9-10 (850); Romans 12:1-2 (837)


  Closing

       A.  We live with grace, in grace and by grace.
