God’s free gift of grace, to me, is. . .

grace week1

Books about God’s grace and what it means and what it will do abound.   Sometimes I like to boil complex topics down into chunks my simple mind can digest.

God’s free gift of grace, to me, is . . .

      • Outright
      • Undeserved
      • Totally sufficient
      • Exclusively God’s
      • Eternal
      • Universal–available to all
      • Indiscriminate
      • Spiritually given
      • Spiritually received
      • Punctual — God’s grace always arrives right on time. It is never late.1

Kyle Idleman believes unless we experience grace we’ll never understand grace.
As we experience grace it becomes a part of our story.

Do you have a grace story? Have you experienced God’s grace first hand?

What does grace mean to you?

This post is interactive.

I’m asking you to respond.

Will you share with me what grace means to you?

Let’s begin this week immersed in God’s unfathomable, lavish grace.

  1. Steven – to me, Grace is all those bullet-points you mention. And lavish, radical, outrageous grace, when coupled with generous, unconstrained, unconditional love is the true Gospel – without them, we speak and write of something less than God.

  2. I was raised by a mother who taught Sunday School and knew both scriptures “faith without works is dead” and “By grace you have been saved through faith. etc.” (Eph 2). But her behaviors and her child rearing were more the first than the second. Until I met and received counseling from R.Lofton Hudson (father of marriage and family counseling, author of Grace is not a Blue-eyed Blond) I had not felt deeply and securely the gift of grace. As I approach 70, her motto “Make yourself useful as well as ornamental” still rings loudly in my ears.I am still a work-in-process, receiving daily the gift of God’s grace.

    • Roger,
      Thanks so much for your comments about your mom. They bless me even more because I knew her. It still amazes me, indubitably, that you and I, having grown up together in our little farm town in Iowa, remain friends and brothers in Christ today.
