Lesson 29

A Child Of God Can Fall From Grace

1. God's grace is conditioned on man's obedience to the Gospel. The Gospel of Christ is "the power of God unto _______________ to every one that ____________ ..." (Rom. 1:16).

2. Jesus is the "author of eternal salvation unto all them that _________ him" (Heb. 5:9).

3. God is just, and is no respecter of persons (Rom. 2:11), "Who will render to every man according to _______ _________" (Rom. 2:6). "Justice and judgement are the habitation of thy (God's) throne ..." (Ps. 89:14).

4. God reveals His justice in these words, "But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be ____________: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he ________" (Ezk. 18:24).

5. God's grace is conditioned on man's continuous obedience to His word. "Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, ___________; but toward thee, goodness, if thou _____________ in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be ________ ________" (Rom. 11:22).

6. Jesus specifies that only those who obey God's word will enter into Heaven. He says, "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that _________ the will of my Father which is in heaven" (Mat. 7:21).

7. Paul wrote to the Galatian CHRISTIANS, "Christ is become no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are ___________ from _________" (Gal. 5:4).

8. James wrote to CHRISTIANS, "Brethren, if any of you do _______ from the truth, and one convert him; let him know, that he converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from __________ ..." (James 5:19-20).

Conclusion: A child of God, by his free will, can lose the blessing of salvation by sinning (1 Tim. 1:19; 4:1-2), since God gives freedom of choice to every man (Ezk. 18:23), and His grace is conditioned upon one's continuous obedience to His word (Rom. 11:22; Mat. 7:21).
