“Grace” is a term that gets tossed around a lot among Christians. But what is grace really all about? It’s more than a word to describe elegance or a prayer we say before we eat. Grace is AMAZING and we’re called to live out that grace in all that we do. So what does it mean to live out a grace-filled life – both as an individual and as a community of believers?
People are difficult, hard to live with, and are a never-ending source of strife. Good thing there's grace!
As we live in this amazing grace of God, the Holy Spirit works to produce a life that's full of some really, really good fruit!
The Gospel brings freedom - it sets us free from having to work our way to God and trust in the things that we do. That doesn't mean that God no longer expects us to follow His commands, but those commands have a much different purpose for us now.
When it comes to our relationship with God, we're often tempted to think that we play a part - even a small one - in making our way to God. But the Gospel isn't "Jesus + _______________" - it's just Jesus and that's all we need!
