GRACE DRIVES DISCIPLINE PDF Print

The apostle Paul, the apostle of grace, speaks of grace three times in 1 Corinthians 15:10, but he mixes it up with his labor. He starts out defining what the gospel is and he talks about the resurrection, but in the middle of that, in 1 Corinthians 15:10, he says, But by the grace of God I am what I am. (We all hear that) His grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me (1 Cor. 15:10).

So, Paul is saying that grace produced sweat. Grace produced his labors for the gospel. Grace produced his discipline. We have to understand that they are very compatible.

If you really have experienced the grace of God and you are in fellowship with Him, your heart will desire to discipline itself for the purpose of godliness to become like the Lord, Jesus Christ, for the sake of the gospel.
