Grace -

Grace Definition: from the Greek word charis, is Gods unmerited favor. It is kindness from God that we dont deserve. There is nothing we have done, nor can ever do to earn this favor. It is a gift from God.

3. Which pieces of the grace puzzle are most difficult for you to grasp? -Forgiveness of God -Forgiveness of others -Forgiving others -Forgiving yourself

-Hope for the future 4. What amazes you most about grace? Grace for OTHERS Grace for others is going above and beyond and giving them something they dont deserve.

Giving favor (kindness, approval, friendly regard) Romans 5:20 The law was added so that the trespass might increase. But where sin increased, grace increased all the more.

14 Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. 15 See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.

Hebrews 12:14-15 Grace for YOURSELF Guilt: being responsible for an offense or wrongdoing Shame: disgrace, humiliation, often at the hands

of the enemy Is it really guilt? or Is it shame?

1. Shut down/check out 2. Kick into overdrive and fix it ourselves And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at al times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8

But he said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. 2 Corinthians 12:9 You who are trying to be justified by law have

been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace. Galatians 5:4 So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace. And if by grace, then it is no

longer by works, if it were, grace would no longer be grace. Romans 11:5-6 The one who trusts in him will never be put to shame.

Romans 9:33 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith ---and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God---not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Grace is a gift. A gift we need to: -freely give to others -fervently receive for ourselves

What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? 2 By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? 3 Or dont you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 We were therefore

buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. For if we have been united with him in a death

like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his. 6 For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with,[a] that we should no longer be slaves to sin 7 because anyone who has died has been set free from sin.

Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him.9 For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. 10 The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God.

8 In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. 12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires. 13 Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an

instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness. 14 For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace.

Romans 6:1-14 11
