Key Text: Romans 5:8
1. Know: That Christ’s sacrifice ensures us eternal life if we accept Him.
2. Feel: Secure of your future with Him as your personal Savior.
3. Do: Respond to God’s grace by following Him.
I. Understanding Grace (Isaiah 53)
A. Jesus is a central point of the entire Old Testament. What does this say about the importance of grace and salvation in God’s message to us?
B. “He bore the sins of many and made intercession for the transgressors” (v 12). It is through His suffering, on our behalf, that we can claim eternal life. Does this seem just to you? Why or Why not?
II. Accepting Grace (Ephesians 2:8)
A. The greatest thing about grace is that it is free. This is a hard concept for many to comprehend. God recognized this and used many different illustrations to help us better understand grace. How do you best relate to grace?
B. How does the idea of grace make you feel? Do you feel guilty accepting such an undeserved gift? Do you feel a security in the promise of eternal life? Are you thankful for God’s love? Explain.
III. Changed by Grace (1 Corinthians 15:10)
A. As grace changed Paul, it can change you. We are not required to do anything but believe and accept His gift. How has grace changed you?
Christ died so we can have eternal life. Without Him, we are lost.
