“Sola Gratia: Grace Alone”

Last of five sermons on the Reformation’s Principles

Scriptures: Ephesians 2:1-10 and Psalm 51:9-13

“Amazing grace! How sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me!”
“Wonderful grace of Jesus, greater than all my sin; how shall my tongue
describe it, where shall its praises begin?”

Christians love to sing about the saving “grace of God” – and rightly so. The Gospel of John tells us that from Jesus, “… we have all received grace” (1:16). Many of the Apostle Paul’s letters begin and end with him expressing his desire that the “grace of Jesus” will fill God’s people (Rom. 1:5,7; 16:20,24; 1 Cor. 1:3-4; 16:23; 2 Cor. 1:2; 13:14; Gal. 1:3; 6:18; Eph. 1:2, 6-7; 4:23; Philp. 1:2; 4:23; Col. 1:2; 4:18). The very last words of the Bible read: “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with God’s people. Amen” (Rev. 22:21).
