God Helps

“God helps those who help themselves?"

Ephesians‬ ‭2‬:‭4‬-‭7‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us IN Christ Jesus.”

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2‬:‭4‬-‭7‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

• Rich in Mercy

• Because of HIS GREAT LOVE

GRACE: Charis - Kindness or Unmerited FAVOR

Romans‬ ‭4‬:‭4‬-‭8‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt. But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness, just as David also describes the blessedness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness apart from works: “Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, And whose sins are covered; Blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin.””

‭‭Romans‬ ‭4‬:‭4‬-‭8‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

• God helps those who CAN NOT help themselves

• If you WORK for it, it’s NOT Grace

• We need to BELIEVE not WORK

“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,”

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2‬:‭8‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Isaiah‬ ‭25‬:‭4‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“For You have been a strength to the poor, A strength to the needy in his distress, A refuge from the storm, A shade from the heat; For the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.”

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭25‬:‭4‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

GOD Shows OUT in the middle of a storm.

Romans‬ ‭5‬:‭6‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭5‬:‭6‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭5‬:‭7‬-‭9‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Hosea‬ ‭1‬:‭1‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“The word of the Lord that came to Hosea the son of Beeri, in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash, king of Israel.”

Hosea‬ ‭1‬:‭2‬-‭3‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“When the Lord began to speak by Hosea, the Lord said to Hosea: “Go, take yourself a wife of harlotry And children of harlotry, For the land has committed great harlotry By departing from the Lord.” So he went and took Gomer the daughter of Diblaim, and she conceived and bore him a son.”

‭‭Hosea‬ ‭1‬:‭4‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Jezreel = Yizreel: God Sows

“For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭5‬:‭10‬-‭11‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“But the free gift is not like the offense. For if by the one man’s offense many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to many.”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭5‬:‭15‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Free Gift Of God

“Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, GRACE abounded MUCH MORE, so that as sin reigned in death, even so GRACE might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭5‬:‭20‬-‭21‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope.”
