“’Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.”
John Newton
Living Between Two Lines
2.
Faith
is a
God
-wrought action which orientates the mind of man to
trust
in Him and His
promises
which were
secured
for us in Christ for both
salvation
and
growth
in Christ.
"For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus."
Philippians 1:6
"For to you it has been granted for Christ's sake, not only to believe in Him...."
Philippians 1:29
"I was shown mercy because I acted ignorantly in unbelief; and the grace of our Lord was more than abundant, with the faith and love which are found in Christ Jesus."
1 Timothy 1:13-14
"For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast."
Ephesians 2:8-9
"No longer do I call you slaves, for the slave does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you. You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit, and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you."
John 15:15-16
"...Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith."
Hebrews 12:1-2
3.
Obedience
is a
faith
-fueled action which is
produced
by
grace
.
"...By the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me did not prove vain; but I labored even more than all of them, yet not I, but the grace of God with me."
1 Corinthians 15:10
"Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, each of us is to exercise them accordingly: if prophecy, according to the proportion of his faith."
Romans 12:6
4. In other words, wherever
faith
shows up,
grace
has been there
first
.
"Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we exult in hope of the glory of God."
Romans 5:1-2
5. As a result of this
truth
, we should walk
carefully
throughout life,
knowing
that He’s walking
behind
and
before
us.
"So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure."
Philippians 2:12-13
"Now these are the nations which the LORD left, to test Israel by them (that is, all who had not experienced any of the wars of Canaan; only in order that the generations of the sons of Israel might be taught war, those who had not experienced it formerly)."
Judges 3:1-2
6.
Obedience
, then, is
gladly
relying on God the Father in all His
promises
which were
secured
for us by
Christ
.
"For as many as are the promises of God, in Him they are yes; therefore also through Him is our Amen to the glory of God through us."
2 Corinthians 1:20
"[receiving God’s promise to Abraham] is by faith, in order that it may be in accordance with grace, so that the promise will be guaranteed to all the descendants, not only to those who are of the Law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all."
Romans 4:16
"I will extol the LORD at all times; His praise will always be on my lips. My soul will boast in the LORD; let the afflicted hear and rejoice. Glorify the LORD with me; let us exalt His name together. I sought the LORD, and He answered me; He delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to Him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. This poor man called, and the LORD heard Him; He saved him out of all His troubles. The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear Him, and He delivers them. Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him."
Psalm 34:1-8
"The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for His name's sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD forever."
Psalm 23:1-6
7. Each week we gather to celebrate the
grace
He has lavished on us through His
Person
, promises, and
provisions
.
