INTRODUCTION TO BIBLE STUDY GUIDE

These studies do not tell you what the Bible says. The scriptures given direct you to specific topics. The questions are intended to help you focus on the study. No answers are given. You have to read and search the scriptures for the answers. We encourage you to use Bible helps such as concordances and commentaries. However, scholars and theologians often disagree on interpretation and application. The best study help comes from God. Pray. Allow yourself to be honest with your reactions, but don't jump to conclusions. It takes time to read and meditate on all the Bible says on various topics. Feel free to ask questions in your prayers. You will be amazed to discover that God does answer the sincere seeker. You will also be surprised that the Bible may not say what you might think it does on many subjects. Keep a notebook. A loose leaf one would make it possible to add thoughts and additional information as you learn more about different subjects. Welcome to an exciting search.

Bible Study Guide:

Full of Grace

By Scarlett Stough

 

To prepare for this Bible study, please read the women in Christ commentary, The Riches of God’s Grace.

 

Part I A Gracious God

1. Exodus 34: 6; Psalms 86:15-16; 103:8-10; 111:4-5; 112:4-5; 116:5-6; 145:8-9 Why do you think God wanted to emphasize his gracious nature in his Name?

2. II Chronicles 30:9; Nehemiah 9:17, 31; Joel 2:13; Amos 5:15 To whom is God gracious?

3. James 4:6 Why do you think that God gives grace only to the humble and withholds it from the proud?

4. Jonah 4:1-2; Luke 15:11-32 How do Jonah and the older son of Jesus’ parable have similar reactions to God’s grace towards the undeserving? What underlying assumption(s) do you think Jonah and the older son share in regards to who should receive grace? Do you think this assumption, or these assumptions, exist today? Explain.

Part II The Incomparable Riches of His Grace

1. Ephesians 1:2-14; 2:1-10 How has God shown his grace to his people today?

2. Romans 4:16; 5:12-6:4; Galatians 5:4, 13-15 How are God’s people saved from sin and death? What can cause us to “have fallen away from grace?” What does the scripture mean by saying that we are no longer under the law, but under grace (Romans 6:14-15)?

3. I Timothy 1:12-17 How did the apostle Paul respond to the grace of God?

4. Titus 1:16; Jude 4 How should God’s grace change us?

Part III Evidence of the Grace of God

1. Acts 11:21-23 What was the evidence of God’s grace that Barnabas saw in the church at Antioch?

2. Acts 6:5-10 How did Stephen show that he was full of God’s grace?

3. Romans 12:4-8; Ephesians 4:7-5:1; I Peter 4:8-11; Colossians 4:6 In what ways are Christians exhorted to show God’s grace?

4. II Corinthians 12:7-10; Hebrews 4:16 How does the grace of God strengthen and encourage us to continue to live by faith in God through Jesus Christ? How do you think we become like Christ in being gracious?

5. II Peter 3:18 How would you answer the question if someone asked you, “How do we grow in the grace of the Lord Jesus?”
