John 1:17 (KJV); For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
The Church of Christ must understand the stark differences between the law and grace.
One of these differences is explained in our theme scripture.
The law was given by Moses. God excluded Himself from the equation. When it came to grace, He gave Himself because grace and truth CAME BY JESUS CHRIST.
In extending grace to the world, God made Christ the object of grace. Grace and Christ cannot be separated.
Jesus Christ is the grace of God.
In every discussion of the doctrine of grace, Christ is the central theme and character.
When we say we are saved by grace (Ephesians 2:8), it means we are saved by Christ. When we say the grace of God labours in us (1 Corinthians 15:10), we mean that Christ labours in us.

GOLDEN NUGGET: In extending grace to the world, God made Christ the object of grace. Grace and Christ cannot be separated. Jesus Christ is the grace of God.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this knowledge. Thank you for what You did through Christ at Calvary. I have embraced Your grace and believed it as a priceless gift for my justification and sanctification. Because I am under grace, Christ is always at work inside me, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
