Bill Knott's GraceNotes: No Strings Attached (December 6, 2019)

12/5/2019
More
We trade our gifts on Christmas Eve, or Christmas morn, or some convenient holiday. We wait to see a grateful smile, or wide-eyed wonder on a child’s face—all quietly aware our turn is next: the next gift will be handed us. And though this pageant brings us joy, and warms our hearts, we dare not say it represents the gospel, even though it’s full of gifts. Our calculations typically are tuned to give of equal value. We won’t embarrass others with extravagance that they can’t match, nor do we...

May I Tell You A Story: The Blocked Call (September 2019)

12/5/2019
More
“Papa, please tell me a story.” That’s Cain, or maybe Abel, asked Adam to tell them a story, a story that will make the past more clear so they can face the future with greater certainty, courage, and hope. It’s a question every Father and Mother has been asked by the “inquiring minds” who sit beside them in the light of a cooling evening. Each month I imagine that you have just invited me to “tell you a story,” a true tale of The Creator’s love that will help you understand the past and...

Bill Knott's GraceNotes: Fully Identified (November 29, 2019)

11/27/2019
More
It would have been grace enough if the Father had executively announced from heaven’s throne that He was commuting our deserved sentences and opening all prison doors. That would have been the very definition of unimaginable and unmerited favor. But that His Son should condescend to crawl into our hovels, be one of us, experience our dirt and pain, and taste the worst of weakness and of cruelty—that’s more than we dared ask or think. Grace took on flesh and bone, and all the drudgery and...

Bill Knott's GraceNotes: Grace At The Gates (November 22, 2019)

11/21/2019
More
The act of giving thanks—whispered at each common meal, or once a year at family dinners on big holidays—is an early, hopeful flag that grace has come to live with us. For a moment—for one long, exhaling moment—we acknowledge the truth of what the apostle wrote 2000 years ago: “You are not your own: you have been bought with a price” (I Cor 6:19-20). For an instant, the guard is down, the drawbridge open, and we admit that we aren’t self-made or even self-sustained. The castle of our lives...

Bill Knott's GraceNotes: The End of Magic (November 15, 2019)

11/14/2019
More
The greatest illusion isn’t some card trick that leaves us gasping, or rabbits pulled from a performer’s hat. No, far greater is the fantasy that makes us think we’ll satisfy God’s holiness by saying “no” to salty snacks, or overcome our deficits by working longer, harder, better. This “sleight of hand” is hardly slight, for we deceive ourselves whenever we pretend our brokenness is of the fingernail—instead of the fatal—kind. Grace requires we surrender our illusion that heaven is within...

Bill Knott's GraceNotes: Can You Handle The Truth? (November 8, 2019)

11/7/2019
More
Now would be a good moment to start telling ourselves the truth. I can no more make myself acceptable to God by right living or good choices than I can learn to levitate, fly unaided through the solar system, or pick strawberries on the moon. The myth of legalism fools us into assuming that there are just a few steps left between our holiness and the holiness of God. It grossly underestimates both God’s essential goodness and our essential lostness. Oddly, legalism teaches us to lie to...

Bill Knott's GraceNotes: More Day To Dawn (November 1, 2019)

10/31/2019
More
“Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take; The clouds ye so much dread Are big with mercy and shall break In blessings on your head.” It’s every believer’s lot to occasionally grow anxious, to lose peace, to doubt that a good God really wants to do good things for us. We remember all our sins—years after He has chosen to forget them. We cringe at indiscretions, which in His discretion He has graciously erased from our life record. And so we crouch into the future, heads down, half-expecting...

Week of Prayer 2019: Why Did God Send Prophets? (November 2019)

10/30/2019
More
Ted N.C. Wilson, president of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, presents a special Week of Prayer reading entitled "Why Did God Send Prophets?" Have you ever wondered about the future? We all have and most of us wished for a way to know the future. Why did God send prophets? offers a good introduction to find answers to these questions—and it doesn’t only have to do with knowing the future. God’s prophetic messages to this world are always meant to invite, call back, and encourage a closer...

Bill Knott's GraceNotes: Cross Purposes (October 25, 2019)

10/24/2019
More
Be wary of the vengeance that your bitterness demands. The blade you wield will cut both ways to injure you and those you wound: you both will bleed. Retaliation never was so cool and final as it seems in all the movies. There’s always more to pay—more pain, more cuts, more haggard hearts. No grudge was ever settled save by love. Christ’s wounded majesty and broken law didn’t move him to abandon us or push us toward our fate. No, He stepped closer after being injured, and embraced us in our...

Bill Knott's GraceNotes: Staying In The Race (October 18,2019)

10/17/2019
More
Grace doesn’t gloat when others lose, nor grow dejected when another takes the flag. It isn’t glum when others swell with self-importance, nor filled with glee when rivals lose their footing. Salvation never was a zero-sum game, for there can be millions—no, make that billions—who finish the course and win the prize. The waiting crown comes in as many sizes as those who run the race. But finding grace will always be a winner-take-all contest. All whom Christ saves win all of Him—eternal...

Bill Knott's GraceNotes: A Circle of Forgiveness (October 11, 2019)

10/10/2019
More
As Christ grows greater in our minds, we lose our need to be authorities over what others think and do. The deepening awareness that we have been wrong more than we have been right—that we are only now approaching the starting point of faith—creates a gentle tolerance for those now camped where we once stopped, or mired in the stuff from which Christ freed us. We learn to smile at vehemence and vitriol, remembering how frequently we used them for bad causes or when we were still unsure....

Bill Knott's GraceNotes: Is It Too Good To Be True? (October 4, 2019)

10/3/2019
More
If you are truly saved through faith, then you are daily praying grace down into the cracks and crevices of life, into the dim and unlit corners where fear and fate and faithlessness more often hold the keys. Understanding—really understanding—grace rarely happens through a flash of intellectual enlightenment: Paul’s own Damascus Road was just the first of many miles spent learning grace. Each week we find how weak and meager is our faith, how little we actually trust the great bold verities...

Bill Knott's GraceNotes: When Everything Changes (September 27, 2019)

9/27/2019
More
Our pledges of good behavior are only as good as the people who make them—which is to say, not good at all. The litter of our broken promises to change, reform, and improve ourselves stretches back like resolutions at the end of January. And we aim too low. We have in mind trying to suppress our angry words. Christ has in mind an entirely new vocabulary grounded in the knowledge that we—and all others—are deeply loved by Him. We imagine chocolates as the foible we intend to fix. Jesus knows...
