Sunday Notes: The Grace of God

Today's Message at Church
John 6:36-47

These are the notes I jotted down at church while I was listening to the sermon.  It really impacted me in a big way.  I am still thinking about everything.  Did you have a chance to listen to the sermon from the church web site?  I sure hope so! :)

NOTES

The Grace of God and Our Salvation. 

I am what I am by the sheer Grace of God. 

God's Grace never changes. 

Read John Chapter 6

(I still need to read the whole chapter) 

Remember when Jesus fed 5,000? Well, that meal was about God's grace. 

God's Grace is necessary.

vs 37 "All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away."

He said whoever comes to Him He will never drive away.  Did you get that?

vs 44 "No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day."

Jesus said He will raise him up.  Did you get that? 

I underlined this next verse in my bible... 

vs 47 "I tell you the truth, he who believes has everlasting life."

Jesus said he who believes has everlasting life. Did you get that? 

It's because of God's Grace that we have Salvation.  It's not because of us, it's because of HIM. 

My Salvation is because of God's Grace!  God Himself draws us to Him! 

Romans 3: 10-12 says, "There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands, no one who seeks God. All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one." 

It's because of God's Grace that we have everlasting life.  He draws us to Him,  not the other way around.  God doesn't change! 

Ephesians 2: 1-2 says, "As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient." 

Keep reading Ephesians Chapter 2.  Read it very slowly. Soak up every single word because there is nothing we can do to make God love us more or less.  His love for us never ends.  His love for us is on-going, everlasting, from the beginning to the end. 

No matter how hard things get always remember it's temporary. 

God never drives us away!!!

John 6:37 says, "All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away."

John 6: 38-40 says, "For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father's will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day." 

John 10: 27-29 says, "My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father's hand."

He has taken all of us in His hand and He'll never ever let you go.
