Who Gets Amazing Grace? Believers!

If you’ve been around church for very long, you’ve likely sang about grace that is amazing. But we need to ask a big question about amazing grace: Who gets it?Who gets it, as in who understands it? Do any of us really understand it? Not just grace as a doctrine, but grace as the gift of God’s power to save us and keep saving us. Jesus was full of grace and truth (John 1:14). We are to grow in grace and knowledge (1 Peter 3:18). It would seem that there is growing in our grasp of truth and then there is growing in truth’s grasp on us, the living out of grace. Do we get it? Does it amaze us?

Who gets it, as in who receives it? This is the question we will be answering one piece at a time in the coming weeks.

This morning we will answer the question, who does God give grace? Who gets it? Believers. Receivers. This grace is more than common grace, this is saving grace. In Romans five we see the prototype and the final design. The prototype ended up bringing sin, death and condemnation to all mankind. The “one to come” brought justification and life. The only catch? He will NOT let you work for it! You can’t have saving grace unless you simply receive it.
