Grace Takers Show Notes

Summary:
We are saved by grace through faith. And, oh, what amazing grace the Lord has shown us! But are we recipients only of God’s grace? Do we let our cup overflow to fill others with this amazing grace, or are we only grace takers? Let’s examine ourselves!

Notes:
Fat Babies and Grace Takers:
Fat babies remain immature due to not being fed
Grace takers are fully fed in knowledge but don’t serve in a meaningful way

Perfect - Greek: teleios - brought to its end, finished, wanting nothing necessary to completeness, perfect, that which is perfect, full grown, adult, of full age, mature

Perfecting - Greek: katartismos - complete furnishing, equipping

Perfect - Greek: artios - fitted, complete, perfect
having reference apparently to "special aptitude for given uses”

Scripture References:
All Scripture references are cited from the King James Bible.

1 Corinthians 8:1-3, 1 Corinthians 13:1-13, Hebrews 5:14, Ephesians 4:13, Ephesians 4:7-16, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, 1 Corinthians 16:14-15, 1 Thessalonians 1:2-10, Titus 2:11-14, Ephesians 2:8-10, Ephesians 5:1-2, Romans 15:25-29, Galatians 6:7-10

Takeaway:
In truth, we need to give as much grace as we take. Often the Lord supplies us with such wonderful gifts to equip us for the work, yet we simply don’t do the work! What better way to magnify the grace of God than to take the Spirit-led teaching Christ provides us and share the gospel, through love, in service to the Lord?
