The Nature of Grace
As our guest speaker pastor Dennis Janisse shares about The Nature of Grace….What is the Grace of God and how do we define it? We are looking at Romans 5:12 Paul in Romans paints a very dark picture in the first three chapters. He is contrasting the righteousness of God and the sinfulness of man. God says all are sinners and have fallen short of the glory of God. One of the questions we ask is how does it get this way? In Romans 5:12 Paul writes that sin and death enter through one man Adam thus we are all sinners. Paul takes us back to our first forefather Adam in Genesis. We are not responsible for what Adam did but we are responsible for what we ourselves do. Will you accept the Grace of God? James 2:19…. Tells us that you believe there is one God and you do well but even the demons believe this. Oh Wow! We need Jesus. His Grace & Mercy didn’t come free. Only by the blood of His Son, Jesus. Romans 6:6 tells us that our old man, our sinful nature, was crucified with him, that we should no longer been slaves to sin…it’s not of ourselves but it is a free Gift of God. Listen in as Dennis shares more about the Grace of God.
