An often asked question when people realize the truth of God's sovereign grace is: "How do I know if I am chosen by God?" Or, as some will express, "How do I know for certain that I have received God's eternal grace and I am truly saved?" Using various Bible passages that speak directly into this subject, this episode outlines the clear evidence shown when God's eternal grace has taken hold in a person's life. Scripture referenced: Psalm 5:7, Matthew 5:14-16, Matthew 7:21, John 3:3-10, John 12:23-25, John 13:35, John 15:8, 16, Romans 8:14-16, Romans 8:29-30, 2 Corinthians 5:14-15, Ephesians 2:4-5, 17, Philippians 1:25, Philippians 3:20-21, Philippians 4:11-13, 1 Thessalonians 1:2-10, 2 Thessalonians 2:13-14, James 1:2-4, James 2:14-26, 1 Peter 1:13, 1 Peter 2:9-10, 2 Peter 1:10, 2 Peter 3:18, 1 John 5:13
Throughout the year of 2023, we are reading and studying passages of Scripture as a church family that speak about the topic of Growing in Christ. We continue this year-long series with Senior Pastor Dr. Tyler Smiley speaking from Ephesians about what is so amazing about God's grace.
Every believer has experienced the insurmountable grace of God in salvation. And His grace is manifested as a gift that we are in turn to use in serving fellow believers. Since it is a gift, it is not ours to waste. This means that we are stewards of this spiritual endowment. Scripture is clear that when Christ returns we will face the Giver of all gifts to give an account for how we employed this grace. However, this should not cause us to serve Him out of fear, but out of love. Just as the groom cannot wait to see his beautiful bride walking down the aisle, so we should look with anticipation to see Christ's face, and praise Him for working in and through us to love and serve His people.Thank you for listening to this episode of Declaring His Glory Among the Nations: Daily Scripture Meditations from Pastors Around the World.This show is from The Master's Academy International.If you like this podcast, please subscribe, and leave a review on your favorite podcast app. The Master's Academy International is committed to fulfilling the Great Commission by training indigenous church leaders worldwide.For more information and to learn how to get involved, visit www.tmai.org.► CONNECT WITH US: Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/tmai.orgInstagram - https://www.instagram.com/tmai_orgTwitter - https://twitter.com/tmai_org► SEE OUR RESOURCES: Field Reports - https://www.tmai.org/updateMinistry Updates - https://www.tmai.org/subscribeOnline Giving - https://www.tmai.org/donateDevotional Book - https://www.tmai.org/devotionalFree Book - https://www.tmai.org/freebook► CONTACT US: Address - 13248 Roscoe Blvd, Sun Valley, CA 91352Phone - (818) 909-5570Email - firstname.lastname@example.org
Paul's preaching in Galatia caused a great stir! After his sermon, Gentiles “begged” him to preach to them (13:42). And the days leading up to his second sermon Paul “persuaded” the the religious devout in the city to “continue in the grace of God” (13:43). By the time Saturday rolled around, “almost the whole city came together to hear the word of God” (13:44). Wow! Though many embraced the message, others rejected it. And Paul later wrote a letter to this community encouraging them to 'stand fast' and ‘continue' in the grace they had received. Christ and Him crucified must remain central in our lives! Join us as we worship and dive into the word!

How does God's grace impact what we do and how we think about ourselves? Pastor John begins a new series entitled "His Attributes: How Awesome," and starts off in Romans 5 with an attribute of God that has so many wonderful facets: His endless grace.
A careful review of the most common questions about grace in order to further encourage the listener on why the doctrine of God's sovereign grace is all completely true. Some specific questions answered are: How can the doctrine of grace be true if most people do not agree with it? Why evangelize if it is God's grace that causes people to believe? Is there grace for people who never hear the gospel? How do you harmonize predestination and free will? Why doesn't God give grace to everyone? Doesn't the Bible say that God wants everyone to be saved? What about John 3:16? How do I know if I am chosen? Scripture Referenced: Numbers 21:4-9, 1 Kings 17:1-16, 2 Kings 5:1-14, Isaiah 46:9-11, Matthew 11:25-26, Matthew 13:10-17, Matthew 24:14, Luke 1:15, 44, Luke 4:16-30, John 3:3, John 3:14-16, John 5:21, John 6:44-45, 60-70, John 10:27, John 12:37-40, Acts 13:48, Romans 5:12-19, Romans 8:28-30, Romans 9:8-24, Romans 10:12-17, Romans 11:33-36, Galatians 1:15, Ephesians 2:1-5, 1 Thessalonians 1:4-10, 1 Timothy 2:1-4, 1 Peter 1:1-2, 2 Peter 3:1-9

Pastor Jeff preached a special message this past Sunday to commemorate FreeWay's first service in their new church home as he proclaimed that we arrived at this moment through God's unfathomable grace. The focus scripture was 1 Corinthians 15:9-11 where brother Paul enumerates that none of his accomplishments were derived from self. Pastor Jeff talked about the power of grace and how it gives you the liberty to embrace change. We know the beautiful story of Paul's transformation. Prayerfully, we will be inspired to flourish in 2023 by the power of our God's grace. 9 For I am the least of the apostles and do not even deserve to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. 10 But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them—yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me. Selah
When you understand Grace, you are beginning to understand God. God's saving grace is an extension of His own character. It is who He is. The great thing about saving grace is that it5 is a gift, it cannot be lost and it is for any who want it.Share this message with someone who does not yet know or understand the saving grace of God.
