October 2, 2016 - Being a Pacesetter - Romans 5:15b-17

  • We don’t all travel along the road of Christian discipleship at the same rate.
  • Why do some people travel faster?
    • They have received “God’s abundant provision of grace”. With eager longing they have opened themselves to it!
Grace
= God’s undeserved mercy in redeeming humankind
= God’s power offered to humans for their sanctification
    • The people who have sped past us on the road of Christian discipleship have received more of that power which God imparts unmerited and free.
  • Why have these people received more grace than others?
    • They knew that this grace was there to be had.
    • They wanted it passionately.
  • They received it; “grace for grace”.
    • Our capacity to receive grace at any level depends on our use of it at a lower level.
Pastor Jim Spon | Romans 5:15b-17
