Tonight is Bible Study night and I'm pumped! I can't wait to get with my girls, drink some coffee, and dig into the Word. There's just nothing better!!!
I've done several "formal" Bible studies over the years, but I'll tell ya, I think this one (Lord, I Need Grace to Make it Today by Kay Arthur) is one of the best I've ever done. Before I started this study, I thought I had a pretty good grasp on the concept of grace, but I'm finding that what I did know was surface level; digging into the Word more has opened up a whole new side of grace for me.
Marvelous grace! Beautiful grace! Abounding grace!! Grace- it's AMAZING!
Let me share with you a few excerpts from the past weeks studies.
"Many times our witness for Jesus Christ lacks power because we don't allow the Law of God to convict sinners of their sin. We forget that Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners." (Lord, I Need Grace to Make it Today, Kay Arthur, pg. 51.)
"Salvation is not merely salvation from hell and eternal condemnation. Hell and eternal condemnation are the consequences of sin. When one is saved, one is saved from the power of sin." (Lord, I Need Grace to Make it Today, Kay Arthur, pg. 51)
"Grace delivers us from sin's penalty and sin's reigning power." (Lord, I Need Grace to Make it Today, Kay Arthur, pg. 51)
"Grace frees man from religion and brings him into a relationship with God. Grace brings life, but it is also the means by which we are to live and to please our Father God. Grace is key to our relationship with God." (Lord, I Need Grace to Make it Today, Kay Arthur, pg. 63)
And one more...
"There is no pit too deep, no sin too great but that there is enough grace and more to rescue us and cover all our sins. Where sin did abound, grace did much more abound! That's what God said, and we must take Him at His Word." (Lord, I Need Grace to Make it Today, Kay Arthur, pg. 82)
