John 17:23, “I (Jesus Christ) in the sphere of them (Church Age believers) and You (God the Father) in the sphere of Me, in order that they may be perfected in unity (with God), so that the world (unbelievers) would know that You sent Me and You loved them even as You loved Me.”
John 3:16,“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”
John 3:36,“He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”
Phil 3:9, “And (I Paul) may be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith.”
b. When anyone believes in Christ, The Father imputes His perfect righteousness to them for: 1) justification, 2) logistical grace, 3) personal love of all believers.Rom 10:10; 2 Cor 5:21
3. Toward policy; This describes the difference in Divine policy towards the believer and unbeliever, both of whom God loves. Rom 9:13, “Jacob I loved; Esau I hated.”
John 3:16,“God loved the world so much that He gave His Son, the uniquely-born One, that anyone who believes in Him shall never perish but have eternal life.”
a) At the moment of salvation, every believer not only has regeneration through Divine Impersonal Love, but he also has Divine Personal Love.
b) Three results from the imputation of +R.1) Justification, Rom 5:1.2) God’s love changes from Impersonal Love to Personal Love.3) We receive logistical grace.
4. The moment you believe in Christ, you possess God’s righteousness, Rom 3:21-26; 4:3-8; 5:17-18; 10:10; 2 Cor 5:21; Gal 3:6; 1 Peter 2:24. Now God can say to you, “I love YOU.”
Grace is the function of the justice of God in providing blessing for the human race under the Laws of Divine Establishment and for the believer under the Plan of God.
