DEFINITIONS OF THE WORDS GRACE: “UNMERITED FAVOR” FAITH:“SUBSTANCE OF THINGS HOPED FOR, THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN” WORKS: THREE TYPES RECORDED IN BIBLE 1. LAW OF MOSES 2.OF MAN 3. OF FAITH
A LOOK AT THESE THREE WORKS WORKS OF THE LAW OF MOSES (GAL. 5:1-4) WORKS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS WE DO (TITUS 3:5) WORKS OF FAITH (JOHN 6:29)
OF MAN (TITUS 3:5) Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; (THUS A WORK OF MAN)
JOHN 6:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. THUS WE LEARN TO BELIEVE ON CHRIST IS A WORK!!!!
IF LAW, IT IS NO MORE GRACE And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then it is no more grace: otherwise work is no more work. (ROMANS 11:6) WHICH WORKS? LAW OF MOSES? WHICH WORKS? OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS? WHICH WORKS?WORK OF FAITH?
