Grace joy

Grace = Joy

  • THAT WHICH GIVES JOY, PLEASURE, DELIGHT...

  • This is the original idea of the Greek word "charis"

  • It is used in the N.T. in this way in reference to SPEECH...

    • The words of Jesus were spoken with grace - Lk 4:22And all were speaking well of Him, and wondering at the gracious words which were falling from His lips;

    • The words of the Christian are to impart grace to the hearers - Col 4:6Let your speech always be with grace


Grace unmerited favor

Grace = Unmerited Favor

B. GOOD-WILL, LOVINGKINDNESS, FAVOR...

  • In this way, it is used ...

    • Of the kindness of a master towards his inferiors or servants

    • And especially of God towards men

      2. THAYER points out that:

    • "CHARIS contains the idea of kindness which bestows upon one what he has not deserved."

    • "The NT writers use CHARIS preeminently of that kindness by which God bestows favors even upon the ill-deserving, and grants to sinners the pardon of their offenses, and bids them accept of eternal salvation through Christ." - e.g., Ep 2:5 3. It is this particular definition of grace that prompts us to think of it most often as "unmerited favor"

Ephesians 2:5 (New American Standard Bible)

5even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),

Romans 5:20,2120 The law was brought in so that the trespass might increase. But where sin increased, grace increased all the more, 21 so that, just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.


Grace a state

Grace = a state

C. A SPIRITUAL STATE OR CONDITION IN WHICH ONE ENJOYS GOD'S FAVOR...

  • Grace gratitude

    Grace = Gratitude

    D. AN EXPRESSION OF GRATITUDE FOR FAVOR BESTOWED...

    • E.g., 1Ti 1:12 where the English word is "thank"

      ("I thank Jesus Christ...")
