I. COMMON GRACE (NON-SAVING)
A. WORK IN CREATION - All People

Romans 2:14-15a
For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:
Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness.

B. WORK THROUGH GOD'S WORD -

Romans 10:15
And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

II. SAVING GRACE - All the Elect (the Church Invisible)
Scriptural Examples

Titus 3:5-7
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:
Which He shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior.

Tell which of these scriptural examples of common grace speak of.
- Physical blessings
- Moral blessings
- Societal blessings
- Restraining blessings



Can you relate biblical examples of God graciously delaying the execution of a person's or nation's just sentence?



The more common grace blessings a person receives and despises, the greater His condemnation shall be. Why?
