CHANGING THE STORYLINE (June 15, 2018)

6/15/2018
More
The friend who points me to the grace of God when I’m sinful, broken, or discouraged offers me far more than comfort. Grace changes my eternal destiny, as well as my emotions. A life made right with God—aligned with honor, caring, and integrity—can still be my story, even though the early chapters predicted dire sentences. The greatest gift we ever give another human being is sharing the grace that rescues and revives us: “Jesus loves you; so do I. And the Bible tells us why.” So stay in...

GRACE AND PATIENCE (June 8, 2018)

6/8/2018
More
Grace tarries at the door when others rap and rush along. Grace knocks when others rashly batter down the door. Grace waits to be invited when others tout prerogative. Grace share a meal of fellowship when others force-feed what they know. He who knocks upon our door will not decide for us, or choose because He’s wiser, or force us to the table. Christ loves to hear our hearts respond, “Yes, Lord; come in. Come be my joy.” So stay in grace.

GRACE AND TRUTH (June 1, 2018)

5/31/2018
More
When I know myself a sinner—when the evidence of my brokenness can no longer be hidden, even from me—I become, at last, a member of the blood-washed throng who always sing of Jesus. So I lay down the myth of my perfection, take off the seamless robe that only Christ can wear, and own my true identity as a sinner saved by grace. This is the touchstone of community, the place where “church” begins. Christ only heals those who need a doctor. He can only mend those who know themselves as...

GRACE AND LIGHT (May 26, 2018)

5/25/2018
More
“The friend who quietly forgives my sin; the colleague who affirms when she could justly criticize —they make God’s grace more real than half a hundred sermons. Grace is not just a distant, theological abstraction—a ledger cancellation in some far-off reckoning of sins. Heaven knew we’d never “get it” until grace became a human being whose words and arms and uncondemning love quick-bridged the chasm of our shame. Give me one grace-filled Christian—holding, speaking, loving as did Jesus—and...

WHAT GRACE REQUIRES (May 19, 2018)

5/18/2018
More
Does grace ask nothing of our lives? Are we, as some believers think, released from all that God expects of us? There’s one great obligation placed on us when we accept the grace of Christ—that we give up the tight-wound management of us; that we allow the Love that will not let us go to work according to His pleasure. (…) Christ knows our frame: our frame is dust. And He reshapes old dust into new lives where imitating Him is all our joy and all our work. So stay in grace.

TRAVELING WITH GRACE (May 12, 2018)

5/11/2018
More
When our hearts are full of joy, or our eyes are full of tears, we grasp the mercy of our God far better than in textbook definitions. (…) We’re never saved by theories or theology. We’re healed by love that seeks us at our worst and guides us toward God’s best. Grace is a daily walk with One who’s never in a hurry. Keep walking. Stay in grace.
