The greatness of God revealed by the awesomeness of His grace. Part 2.

Sunday, May 29, 2011

As a part of our study on the doctrine of the book of life, we have been noting many of the principles and the analogies that the Bible teaches us concerning both Adam and the woman versus TLJC and His bride.

They were created perfect; we were born in sin. They were in perfect environment; we are in the devil’s world. They were under one negative mandate only; we are under many commands, JAM 2:10.

The thing we have going for us over them is that we are under the grace of God, EPH 2:8-10; COL 2:6.

Grace can do more for us than love. Love cannot save; grace can. JOH 3:16 “For God so loved the world,”

EPH 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;

The justice of God can provide blessings in time which exceed the blessings of the Garden of Eden.

If God provided the greater, blessings in time from His justice, it follows a fortiori that He can provide the less, blessings in eternity.

It is much easier for God to bless us in eternity where there is no old sin nature, no devil, no sin, and no distractions.
