Who Gets Amazing Grace? Everyone!

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? And the answer is simple. Everyone. In some way or another, every person on the planet receives grace. In theological circles, it’s called ‘common grace’, in that the grace of God is in some common ways common to everyone. He even gives grace through the unbeliever to the world! Would it change the way you looked at the world if you really believed this? And why is God gracious to everyone? What is he after?
