The Grace of God Part 6: Common Grace Part 2: God’s Temporal Blessings

Review: We have been looking at common grace for the third week. First week we looked at the His common grace in restraining sin with the second week we looked at God’s common grace at restraining His wrath.

Purpose: In this session we shall explore the attribute of the grace of God as it manifest as common grace. We will see God’s common grace manifest in temporal blessings.  We will then draw implications of this doctrine to apply to the Christian life. 

Recap of the definition of Common Grace

  1. John Murray: “Every favour of whatever kind or degree, falling short of salvation, which this undeserving and sin-cursed world enjoys at the hand of God.”[1]
  2. My definition: The unmerited favor of God that both the saved/elect and nonsaved/non-elect can commonly be recipients of from God.

What do we mean by God’s Temporal Blessings?

  1. By temporal blessings I am referring to God’s blessings this side of eternity (before death, before the Second Coming of Christ).
  2. Here I want to cover God’s common grace that are less about restraining as in the previous two lessons and more on God’s “positive” blessings.
  3. We must however remember that both God’s restraining activity of common grace and His positive blessings are inter-related. You can’t have God’s temporal blessing without presupposing His common grace restraining His wrath being fully exercised, etc.

Session 35: The Grace of God Part 4: Common Grace Part 1: God’s restraint of sin

Review: We have been looking at the grace of God for the fourth week. First week we looked at the grace of God in the Old Testament.  The second week we look into the Grace of the God in the New Testament specifically, (1) God’s grace is an attribute found in all three members of the members of the Trinity, (2) and the grace of God seen in salvation of sinners.  The third week we looked at the grace of God in the New Testament specifically (3) God’s grace and sanctification (4) and God’s grace in ministry.

Purpose: In this session we shall explore the attribute of the grace of God as it manifest as common grace. We will provide definitions, note the two aspect of common grace and provide Scripture supporting God’s common grace that restrains certain things and then we will draw implications of this doctrine to apply to the Christian life.
