A 3 Part Series from Loiue Giglio
The core of the Christian message is captured by one simple, yet profound word--grace. This little word sets Christianity apart and fuels our cause. Grace is God''s unmerited and undeserved favor, poured out through His Son Jesus Christ. It is His grace that saves us, not because we are worthy of it, but because He knows we cannot rescue ourselves.
Through grace God canceled the penalty of sin and death, yet grace was never meant to cancel a life that seeks to honor and serve the One who set us free. In fact, the opposite is true. The sign of true grace is a greater desire to serve and work in His story, not so that we can gain His approval... but out of the joy that comes from knowing we've already been approved.
Grace and works, intimacy and fear... both sides of the same truth. Find the wonder of living in the balance, where God''s freeing grace compels and empowers us to live a life that reflects His glory.
