The Grace of Godliness - Part 1

THE CONFESSION OF GRACE            Page 6
V.11 (cont'd.)

The resurrection was the pivotal message to the proclamation of the gospel, and Paul did not care who preached it, just as long as it was preached. cf. Philippians 1:15-18

EXTRICATE

** What is the wonderful truth that distinguishes Biblical Christianity from the world's religions and philosophies?

The resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

DELINEATE

** If we have placed our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ because we believed the gospel (that Jesus died, was buried and rose again according to Scripture), what should be our common confession relative to anything that we are or have achieved?

"By the grace of God I am what I am". . . That it is all by His marvelous grace.

EVALUATE

** Look back with me to verse 10 of today's passage. What three guidelines can be drawn from Paul's example and then applied to our daily walk with the Lord?

1) By God's grace I am what I am.
2) His grace is not in vain, if I will labor.
3) When I labor (even harder than others) it is not I, but the grace of God with me.

ACTIVATE

** As this series continues we are going to be learning much about God's grace and how it produces godliness in us. For today it will be enough if we honestly recognize how gracious God has been toward us in our salvation and go from here a grateful people willing to labor hard for His glory. Let's commit to that!
