of His Grace!
That Are True Of Me
Now That I Am Saved
|Contemplating what God has graciously done for hell-deserving sinners ought to
encourage and thrill the soul of every blood-bought child of God!
As the hymn writer has said, "Oh to grace how great a debtor, daily I'm
constrained to be!" (Robert Robinson). Paul, in referring to the redemption and
forgiveness that believers have in Christ, spoke of "the RICHES of His GRACE"
(Ephesians 1:7). Elsewhere he said, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1
Corinthians 15:10). God has given to every believer everlasting consolation (eternal
encouragement) and good hope through grace (2 Thess. 2:16-17). "For ye know
of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor,
that YE through his poverty might be RICH" (2 Corinthians 8:9).
Many believers fail to appreciate the RICHES that they have. The story is told of an
aged silver miner who had spent his whole life searching for silver in the mountains of
the Old West. He had become so involved with his search that his wife and children had
left him. When he died, the handful of people who came to bury him found in his
possessions a note instructing them to bury him under his cabin. As the shovels turned
over the earth, a lustrous gray material began to appear. It was the famous Comstock
Silver Vein, the richest in California history. That miner had been a billionaire all his
life, but he did not know about the wealth that he had and he had never claimed it. He did
not realize how rich he really was.
Every true believer is a spiritual billionaire. The Bible says that Christ became poor
(and died for us) that we through His poverty might be RICH (2 Cor. 8:9). The believer, who
is a child of the King, often goes around living like a PAUPER rather than living like a
PRINCE. God wants us to know how RICH we are because of His matchless grace: "Blessed
be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual
blessings in heavenly places in Christ" (Ephesians 1:3). We have been blessed with
every spiritual blessing!
We cannot possess our possessions if we do not know what they are. We cannot walk
worthy of our calling (Ephesians 4:1) if we do not know what our calling is. The great
facts and truths found in God's Word must be claimed by faith. We must see ourselves as
God sees us in Christ. By faith we must lay claim to what has already been given to us in
Christ. The grace of God teaches us and instructs us how to live (Titus 2:11-12). God's
method of instruction is to first show us and teach us what He has done for us in grace,
and then we are told to walk accordingly. Ephesians 5:8 illustrates this well: "For
ye were sometimes [formerly, referring to our unregenerate state] darkness, but now are ye
light in the Lord: walk as children of light." We are to walk in light of WHO WE ARE.
We are to "be what we are." Our actual CONDITION is to match our glorious
POSITION. The more we, by faith, lay hold of the glorious facts of our POSITION in Christ,
the more this will affect our actual state and CONDITION as we walk with the Lord in time.
May the eyes of our understanding be enlightened, that we may know what is the hope of
His calling, and what is the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and
what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe (see Ephesians
In order to fully appreciate the riches of God's grace we need to contrast our present
position in Christ with our former unregenerate state when we were outside of Christ and
dead in sin. The glories of God's grace shine brighter against the black background of our
past state and condition before we met the Saviour. God never wants us to forget WHAT WE
WERE prior to our salvation: "Wherefore REMEMBER, that ye being in time past
[formerly, when in an unsaved state] Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision
by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; That at that time YE
WERE without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the
covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world" (Eph. 2:11-12 and
compare Titus 3:3). Thus, before we consider our riches in Christ, let us consider...

In light of our former, unsaved state and condition, notice how important the little
word "but" is in these precious passages:
"Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according
to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of
disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of
our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the
children of wrath, even as others. But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love
wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with
Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)" (Ephesians 2:2-5).
"For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving
divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.
But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, Not by works
of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the
washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost" (Titus 3:3-5).
"That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of
Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in
the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the
blood of Christ" (Ephesians 2:12-13).
MARVELOUS GRACE OF OUR LOVING LORD!
Having reminded ourselves of our former, unregenerate state, we are now ready to
consider the great things God has done for us in His grace, saving our souls and making us
whole. This listing is by no means original. For example, Lewis Sperry Chafer has a
similar listing in his book entitled Salvation. Also this listing is by no means complete
or exhaustive. We have listed 215 things but there are more. You can add to this list
through your own study of the Scriptures as you find other things that are true of you now
that you are saved. This study can be used as a devotional aid. One or two of the
following points could be considered each day as you meditate on the riches of God's
grace. Consider these as "SPIRITUAL VITAMIN PILLS" and take one or two a day! As
you go through the day remind yourself of who you are and what you have in Christ! As a
saint, live saintly! As a child of God, so walk in a way that would honor your heavenly
Father! "To God be the glory! Great things He hath done!" Don't forget WHO YOU
ARE! Consider the following:

Christ (Rom. 8:32), see this link.
Wonderful grace of Jesus, Greater than all my sin;
How shall my tongue describe it, Where shall its praise begin?
Taking away my burden, Setting my spirit free,
For the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me.
Wonderful grace of Jesus, Reaching the most defiled,
By its transforming power Making him God's dear child,
Purchasing peace and heaven For all eternity
And the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me!"
