GraceNotes: Grace and Risk (December 14, 2018)

12/14/2018
More
This baby born in Bethlehem was both like and unlike every other child —a life so rare, so richly valuable, that still we grope at language edge for words to tell His story, and for names by which to worship Him. He chose fragility, this Lord who once threw stars and galaxies around like pebbles on a beach, so that the powerless would know how well He understands their lives. He entered our dry dustiness where weakness and reliance meet—because grace trusts, grace hopes, grace makes new...

GraceNotes: For Goodness' Sake (December 7, 2018)

12/7/2018
More
All our goodness flows from grace. One of our favorite illusions is that broken, self-consumed people like us can still spontaneously do noble things out of some “inner light” we claim to have. I have followed one too many Volvos bearing tattered bumper stickers urging “Random Acts of Kindness.” Unless the Holy Spirit has vanished from the universe, there are no such things as random acts of kindness. Unrecognized among the myriad ways we interact with each other—some petty, some brutal—are...

GraceNotes: Persistent Grace (November 30, 2018)

11/30/2018
More
Is there a force in this wide universe more powerful or more patient than the grace of God? Name it if you can: I don’t know of it. If God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, what but our obstinate and persistent refusal could keep Him from clothing us, the objects of His everlasting love, with the spotless robe of Jesus’ perfect righteousness? Unless we refuse Him, and all He’s offering, He will bring us to the banquet hall of grace...

Digging Deeper: The Creation Story (December 2018)

11/29/2018
More
Nothing on earth has ever been as beautiful as God’s beginnings; nothing as pure; as whole, healthy and inspiring with vigor to the body and clarity to the mind. Eden was His masterwork, inclusive of the man and woman He put there as its first managers; inclusive of their work and Sabbath rest schedule He instituted from the start. Today, despite sin’s unimaginable ruin, we can learn of true beauty and grow back to wholeness by giving attention to mental and practical reminders around us,...

GraceNotes: Gratitude and Grace (November 23, 2018)

11/22/2018
More
Thankfulness is all about our expectations. So long as we think we deserve to be healthy—physically, financially—and that a sick body or an empty wallet is an injustice done to us, we’ll never feel all that grateful when God heals us. If God owes it to us to make and keep us healthy and wealthy, why should we thank Him for it? But if we grasp the deep sacredness of living—that every moment is a gift from the Father’s hand—then everything in us will sing of everything God is doing for us....

GraceNotes: Grace Beyond Fear (November 16, 2018)

11/15/2018
More
Fear grips our hearts whenever we assume that all our happiness depends on us. We know our brokenness too well: the foolish choices; missed opportunities; the coldness and the distance caused by hot, close things we’ve said. Unless we’re truly loved in spite of all we’ve done, fear is the natural response to what seems painful randomness. But grace proclaims a holiday from fear—not for an hour or a day, but for as long as we allow ourselves to be surrounded—yes, and held—by never-ending...

GraceNotes: Grace and Clarity (November 9, 2018)

11/8/2018
More
Some suppose grace represents a certain casualness in God about what we’ve done—a blessed amnesia that ignores our waywardness. “He moves the lines,” we tell ourselves, as though the One who authored the commandments wasn’t fully serious about them. But the Father sees our faults so clearly that it is only by looking at His Son that He can choose—yes, choose—to unremember what we’ve done. It’s the love He has for Jesus—and for all who likewise love the Saviour—that moves unblinking vigilance...

For about 25 years now, the Adventist Review has been publishing Clifford Goldstein’s column. Called Cliff’s Edge, it deals with a host of issues regarding faith, theology, philosophy, science and just about anything else he can think of that he thinks is relevant and faith-affirming.

Jared Thurmon is the strategic partnerships liaison for...

Searching The Obvious: Not Done, November 2018

11/6/2018
More
"Where can I go from your spirit? Or where can I flee from your presence?” (Psalm 139:7, NRSV) “Searching the Obvious” focuses on how the Holy Spirit is ever active in our surroundings and in our lives, urging us to serve others. Personal stories challenge the reader to be mindful of our Christian Walk, recognize our own fallibility and slow down to ‘search the obvious’, the active presence of the Holy Spirit ever always around us.

GraceNotes: The Gate of Grace (November 2, 2018)

11/1/2018
More
Those who most object to grace are those who think they need it least—who blithely trust that Jesus has a “higher” way of saving them. No deep repentance, wet with tears, will stain their history: they imagine righteousness will be an earned diploma on some future graduation day.But there’s only one way to the kingdom, and it passes through the gate of grace. No prior goodness lets us enter by some grander, private entrance; no record of abstaining lets us walk apart from those who’ve...

Digging Deeper: Babylon (November 2018)

11/1/2018
More
Babylon: one of antiquity’s most famous cities, proud of their god Marduk, and ruled in the 2 millennium BC by the famed lawgiver Hammurabi. Later, Babylon is a world wonder with its hanging gardens, its Ishtar Gate and dominating ruler Nebuchadnezzar. But Babylon is something else too: it’s the inheritor of the Babel legacy, a place where God’s gifts and talents to His children become their weapons against Him. . . ; until the very name becomes synonymous with enmity against God, hostility...

GraceNotes: Tenacious Grace (October 26, 2018)

10/25/2018
More
Because we know our wretchedness so well, we think that Jesus is repulsed by us as we are by ourselves. If we could run away from us, we would: why wouldn’t Jesus do the same? Why would He willingly elect to stand by us and wrap us in His arms and bear our awful reputation? But grace defines tenacity—a fierce unwillingness to let us go or drift back into cynical aloneness. Grace holds us; calms us; heals us; stays. There is no hurrying the Lord. He will be there when we next rise: He’ll...

GraceNotes: Grace Without Desperation (October 19, 2018)

10/19/2018
More
When we’ve tried every other way, we give ourselves—with sighs—to grace. We miss its beauty and its joy because we save it as our last resort, a life ring for the drowning. We strive as though the goal was to use as little of God’s grace as possible, like salt on vegetables, or gas when heating homes. But Jesus wants our joy “full-filled”: abundance is the sign of grace. The life that could be yours can now be yours—without delay, without the misery and thrashing. God saves the desperate,...
