Who Gets Amazing Grace? The Witness and The Servant

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? Witnesses & servants get amazing grace! We’ll take a quick trip through the book of Acts and see how the grace of God was with his servants and witnesses. They were testifying of his grace and by his grace there was great power in their ministry and mission. Then we’ll narrow it down to Paul and see how he talked about God’s grace in his life, that an important part of God’s grace was his calling to preach the “unsearchable riches of Christ” to the Gentiles. Lastly, we’ll be talking about God’s grace to you and me in the form of the gifts he has given us, through which we serve God and his people. God gives us grace so that we can minister grace “in its various forms” to others!
