Class 17: Grace


Previous Part

Part 8: Come before the throne

(This is part 8 of 9 parts in this class)


The principle place from which we obtain grace is from the throne of grace. However, grace has an opportunity to flow into our lives from a number of sources. For example, Paul began one of his letters with,

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Thessalonians 1:2 - NKJV


Paul imparted grace to his partners in the Gospel. It is marvellous to me to realise you and I can have a relationship together in grace. We can be connected to one another through the Gospel and in this special relationship know God's grace flowing among us. I can have grace you can partake of and you can have grace I can partake of.


We can partner in grace as we partner in the Gospel. Paul wrote to his Gospel partners,

Both in my chains and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel, you all are partakers of my grace.

Philippians 1:7 - NKJV


Here are three other sources of grace: the Holy Spirit - the Spirit of Grace - in your life (Hebrews 10:29), God's Word - the Word of His grace (Acts 20:32), the knowledge of Father and His Son, Jesus (2 Peter 1:2)


There is a marvellous promise of grace in Psalm 84. It reads,

For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.

Psalm 84:11 - NKJV


Grace is promised - it is up to us to see to it that we position ourselves to receive His grace!
