The Scope of the Gospel of Grace

The Scope of the Gospel of Grace

 (Rom. 1:16).


Salvation from sin has been universally provided for all mankind through the unlimited atonement of Christ. There is no partiality. For this reason, God made this saving grace to be available to whosoever believes (Tit. 2:11-14; Rom. 10:12-13).



The extent of the work of grace goes beyond salvation. It extends to sanctification and Holy Ghost baptism. There is the saving grace, as well as the sanctifying grace (Eph. 2:4-5,8). The perfect tense are ye saved (verse 8) indicates that salvation is both past, present, and future. Present and future salvation(s) is/or are the work of sanctifying grace, which Paul the apostle earnestly prayed to God to grant the Thessalonian Church (1Thess.5:23-24). Sanctification and Holy Ghost baptism which enables holy living and service respectively, was in the mind of God when He planned our salvation (Eph. 1:4; Acts 1:8; 2:38-39).


From the foregoing, it can be concluded that regeneration is not complete without sanctification and Holy Ghost baptism. Therefore, pray and get sanctified and baptized by Jesus for service.
