11-19-2017 “THE OUTFLOW OF GOD’S GRACE!” 2 Corinthians 9:8, 11, 15

In this weeks study Bro. Leo continues a series on “thankfulness” toward God by looking at the biblical result of being grateful towards God for His grace.

Grace can be defined as the totality of all undeserved, unmerited, unearned, mercies and blessings bestowed upon all believers.  Grace should cause two things in a Christian 1) grace produces good works through us, 2) grace produces gratitude and thankfulness toward God (2Cor. 9:8, 11 Eph.2:10).   Receiving grace should produce an outflow of the overflow that God has bestowed upon us.

No matter what storm we face in life God will strengthen us enough to endure the storm (1Cor.10:13, Deut.33:24-25, 2Cor.9:8).  Knowing that God’s grace will strengthen us in every weakness/trial we have or go through should produce gratitude towards God for the weakness/trial and for the strength He gives us to endure it (2Cor.12:8).

Scriptures used in today’s study:

2Co 9:8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work
2Co 9:11 Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God.
2Co 9:15 Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.

Eph 2:4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
Eph 2:5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
Eph 2:7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
Eph 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God

1Co 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

Deu 33:24 And of Asher he said, Let Asher be blessed with children; let him be acceptable to his brethren, and let him dip his foot in oil.
Deu 33:25 Thy shoes shall be iron and brass; and as thy days, so shall thy strength be.

2Co 12:8 For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.
2Co 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
2Co 12:10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

Eph 2:4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us
Eph 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Eph 2:9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
