Experiencing the Riches of His Grace

Eph 1:3-13; Rom 10 (KJV)

The Forgiveness of Sins

The Unregenerated Man- Our Former State

  • Adam & Eve fell into sin in the Garden of Eden through disobedience – Gen 3
  • The result brought in disobedience & sin to all men – Ro 5:12
  • This opened man up into the psychic world
  • This explains why there are fortune tellers, tarot card readers & psychics e. They need their sins to be forgiven – Rom 3:23
  • Satan has control over their will
  • Darkness causes one to stumble & not advance spiritually – Joh 11:10
  • Darkness causes one to not grow in their ministry

The Regenerated Man – Begotten or Born Again

  • They have been forgiven of ALL their sins
    • God wants to forgive us but, we must believe on his Son – Joh 10:9-16
    • Anytime you want to experience forgiveness of sins again, or need to be restored again, read, believe and pray verse 7 – John 14:6, Eph 1:7
  • They are believers, have faith in God – Rom 1:17
  • He receives three things from God
    • Redemption – We receive through his blood – Eph 1:7
    • Forgiveness of sins-Rest in this & believe this – John 8:32
      • This will cause you to walk in a new depth and a new awareness & in a new light
      • Darkness causes one to stumble & not advance spiritually
      • Darkness causes one to not grow in their ministry
    • Riches of his grace- By being forgiven of all our sins
      • We receive this by believing on the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus- Rom 10:14-17

How To Receive Salvation Initially

  • Hear & reading the word + Faith & Trust = Salvation
    • Hearing the word of God that is taught and preached – Rom 10:17
      • Study the bible – II Tim 2:15
      • Understand what you read & hear – Acts 8:30
      • Philip told the eunuch, “understandest thou what thou readest”
      • Evil spirits fight against you reading the bible
    • Make a decision after you understand the word – Eph 1:13
      • You have a choice to believe or doubt the word
    • The end result, if you choose to believe is faith in God – Eph 1:13-14
      • Having faith in God’s word will bring salvation Heb 10:35
      • Holy Sprit = earnest of our inheritance Eph 1:13
      • Trust in Jesus, He will never fail Eph 1:13
      • Faith and salvation go together, you can’t have one without the other
      • It is like love and marriage, those two go together
      • Believe who God is

Who is God?

  • The Father of the Lord Jesus Christ Eph 1:3
  • He is also the God of Jesus Christ Eph 1:3
  • He blesses us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places Eph 1:3
  • He raised His Son Jesus from the dead
  • God never fails
  • Salvation comes from God
  • God gives you salvation on what you heard about Jesus Eph 4:21
  • And what you believe to be the truth about Jesus

What is the Riches of His Grace?

  • This implies how willing God is able to forgive us
  • This is based on God’s Son, how & why he died for us
  • Eternal life in the new world
  • You are going to reign with Him forever

The Danger of Leaving The Riches of His Grace

  • Regretting if you were just not called to preach
  • Entertaining the thought & feeling of why you are in this Acts 19:24
  • How do you back out royally without making a mess
  • People think they are getting away
  • It may look like its working
  • There is coming a day when you have to answer for that
  • God will deal with it later in the judgment
  • You will have to answer because you were predestinated, but you decided to jump track
  • You were deceived, but it doesn’t get you off the hook
  • The Holy Spirit is there to help all those that are predestinated
  • No one believes just from their freewill because before we came to the Lord, Satan had control over our will
  • The Spirit also works with the Word providing the preacher or teacher giving the word has the Spirit
  • The sooner you believe, the better
  • Those who usually go far in the Lord are those who open up their heart to the Lord immediately.
  • You could be a front runner for God, just make up in your mind that you are going to make up for lost time.
  • Know ye not, we all run in a race
  • I come to noon prayer because I want the prize
  • That is our motivation, there is one prize, and we all are going together.
