Grace (2) – The Place of Man Under Grace

  1. He has been accepted in Christ, who is his standing.
  2. He is not “on probation.”
  3. As to his life past, it does not exist before the Father: he died in Christ on the Cross, and now Christ is his Life.
  4. Grace, once bestowed, is not withdrawn: for the Father knew all the human exigencies beforehand — His action was independent of them, not dependent upon them.
  5. The failure of devotion does not cause the withdrawal of bestowed grace (as it would under law). For example: the man in 1 Corinthians 5:1-5, and also those in 11:30-32, who did not “judge” themselves and so were “judged by the Lord — that they might not be condemned with the world.”
