Peace & Grace (1 Corinthians 1:1-6)Tommy Boring, February 5, 2014
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Wednesday service
Think about the salutation that you use. Grace and peace can only be given by Jesus Christ. No matter how bad you want to give peace or grace, you'll never be able to give it. There is no peace for a lost person. When we great one another we should remind each other that God is still on the throne. Sometimes we just need a reminder of just who God is and of His grace. We should have confidence in God. Most people live defeated because they choose to be. What is grace? Grace is the merciful kindness by which God, exerting His holy influences upon souls, turns them to Christ, keeps, strengthens, increases them in Christians faith, knowledge, affection, and kindles them to the exercise of the Christian virtues. The evil is stronger than we are. Peace is the tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and content with its earthly lot, of whatever sort that is. Our flesh will never be at peace.
