The Grace of Godliness - Part 3

THE GLORY OF GRACE            Page 4

V. 6 ** What is to be our response to our Heavenly Father's kindness that was put on display in the past aspect of our salvation?

"...to the praise of the glory of His grace..." This is our first reminder that "The Glory of Grace" belongs totally to God! It is "His" grace!

** Did you notice what all this grace cost us?

Nothing! It was "freely bestowed on us in the Beloved."
So the past aspect of our salvation is "our election" by the love and kindness of our Heavenly Father. Next, we will see the present aspect of our salvation, which comes through the Son.

V. 7 ** What is it that we gain "In Him"?

Our redemption! The word used here means "to release on payment of ransom".

** What was the payment?

"...through His blood..." cf. 1Peter 1:18-19

** What did that accomplish for us in this present time?

"...forgiveness of our trespasses..." cf. Hebrews 9:22

** Was there any limitation to God's forgiving power?

No, "...according to the riches of His grace, (V.8) which He lavished upon us."

V. 8 - 10

** What is it that God made known to us by granting us wisdom and insight?

"...the mystery of His will..." cf. Colossians 1:26-27 and 1Peter 1:10-12

V.10 ** What was God's kind intention, "which He purposed" in Jesus Christ, looking toward?

The "administration suitable to the fulness of the times..."

** What is that?

"the summing up of all things in Christ..."
