Topic: Understanding God’s Grace
We are saved by grace through faith. Our salvation is because of the grace of God, not because of our works.
Today, this topic of grace has been greatly misunderstood and some have swung to different extremes. This is not a recent problem but one that has existed from the beginning of the church(See Jude 1:4). While some take the grace of God as a Licence to sin, some have denied the grace of God by trusting in their ability to keep rules and regulations as the reason why they are saved.
This study would help us further look at the important topic of grace so that we can walk in multiplied grace(2 Peter 1:2).
