GRACE ACCESSED BY FAITH by steve finnell

Faith to believe is not imputed to individuals because they have been saved by grace alone. Grace is available to all men because Jesus died on the cross. Grace is only applied to those who obey God's terms for pardon. Grace is accessed by faith. Faith is not accessed by grace.

Romans 5:1-2 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have  peace with God  through our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. (NKJV)  

Grace is accessed through faith.

The progression to God's grace.

Romans 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (NKJV)

Only the saved are under God's grace.

Terms of Grace.
1. Faith: John 3:15-16 "that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. 16...whoever believes in Him...(NKJV)

2. Repentance: Acts 3:19 "Repent therefore  and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out...(NKJV)

3. Confession: Romans 10:9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart  that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. (NKJV)

4. Immersion in Water: "He who believes and is baptized will be saved...(NKJV)

Grace is only accessed by the saved, however, it is available to all men who obey God's terms for forgiveness. (Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, NKJV)
