The Grace of Godliness - Part 2

THE GIFT OF GRACE            Page 3
V. 6 - 8 (cont'd.)

** Would it be a common thing for someone to die for (or in the place of) even a "good" man?

V. 7 No, "...one will hardly die for a righteous man..." and "...perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. All of these words describe a rare occurrence at best, not the norm.

V. 8 ** We said in answering our second question of this study, that we needed to trust the love of God. How was that love demonstrated to mankind?

By Christ dying for us while we were still sinners, He put on display the only kind of love that you can trust, the love of God!

V. 9 ** Since we accept the fact that we have been justified before God by faith, what is our future like?

"...we are saved from the wrath of God..."

** Did you notice how expensive our justification was?

We were justified "by His blood". cf.1Peter 1:18-19
Romans 6:23, Hebrews 9:22 "...without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness..."

V.10 ** How would you describe our relationship to God prior to our reconciliation, which was provided through the death of His Son?

We were His enemies!

** So, if the death of Christ reconciled us to God, what will the resurrected life of Christ do?

Keep us eternally saved! cf. John 14:19

V.11 ** Our experience with God will continue for all eternity and go beyond merely being saved, what is to be the nature of our saved relationship with God?

We "exult in God through our Lord Jesus Christ".
cf. Psalm 34:3 "O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together." We are to be people preoccupied with truly praising the Lord.

V.12 ** For us to truly appreciate "The Gift of Grace", we need to understand where everything went wrong in the first place. How did sin enter the world?

Through one man, Adam. He sinned, death came through sin and spread to all men. Therefore all
are sinners and all will die.
