Grace. Summary:

(1) Grace is “the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man. . . not by works of righteousness which we have done” Titus 3:4,5.

It is, therefore, constantly set in contrast to law, under which God demands righteousness from man, as, under grace, he gives righteousness to man Romans 3:21,22; 8:4; Philemon 3:9. Law is connected with Moses and works; grace with Christ and faith ; John 1:17; Romans 10:4-10. Law blesses the good; grace saves the bad; Exodus 19:5; Ephesians 2:1-9. Law demands that blessings be earned; grace is a free gift ; Deuteronomy 28:1-6; Ephesians 2:8; Romans 4:4,5.

(2) As a dispensation, grace begins with the death and resurrection of Christ Romans 3:24-26 4:24,25. The point of testing is no longer legal obedience as the condition of salvation, but acceptance or rejection of Christ, with good works as a fruit of salvation, ; John 1:12,13; 3:36; Matthew 21:37; 22:24; John 15:22,25; Hebrews 1:2; 1 John 5:10-12. The immediate result of this testing was the rejection of Christ by the Jews, and His crucifixion by Jew and Gentile Acts 4:27. The predicted end of the testing of man under grace is the apostasy of the professing church: See “Apostasy” (See Scofield "2 Timothy 3:1") 2 Timothy 3:1-8 and the resultant apocalyptic judgments.

(3) Grace has a twofold manifestation: in salvation Romans 3:24 and in the walk and service of the saved Romans 6:15.

7 Or, Who shall into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)

8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the , which we preach;

3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the , fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

4 But God, who is rich in , for his great love wherewith he loved us,

5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in places in Christ Jesus:

7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

8 For by are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

2 And all these shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.

3 shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.

4 Blessed shall be the of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.

25 Who was for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.

John 15:22, 25

1 John 5:10-12

10 He that believeth on the hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.

11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his .

12 He that hath the Son hath ; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, to parents, unthankful, unholy,

3 Without natural affection, , false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

4 Traitors, heady, highminded, more than lovers of God;

5 Having a of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers ,
